An unprecedented 7 years of Fairphone 2!

Our 6-year-old Fairphone 2 is being upgraded to Android 10. That’s 7 years of software support – an industry first for an Android device! To reach this milestone, we joined forces with the open source community to build the operating system. Beta testing has started, with the aim to be publicly available in early 2022. And the good news doesn’t end there – for Fairphone 3 and 3+ users, beta testing for Android 11 has also already kicked off.

iFixit scored our Fairphone 4 a perfect 10/10 for repairability

Just one more reason to celebrate! This score follows in the footsteps of our Fairphone 2 and Fairphone 3 as all three devices are the only smartphones worldwide to receive a perfect score. iFixit’s senior technical writer, Taylor Dixon, did a teardown of the Fairphone 4 and in a guest blog, shared more on the design decisions that really left an impression.

Raising the bar for smartphones in the EU

Our mission is to change the electronics industry and influencing the EU Ecodesign Directive would be a big leap forward for the transformation we are working towards. Thea Kleinmagd recently spoke at the EU Raw Materials Week in Brussels on behalf of Fairphone and advocated for easy, affordable and accessible repairs to not only be possible, but for it to be a legal requirement too.

We've scaled Fairtrade gold! 

We are thrilled to announce that together with our partners we have paved a way to source even more Fairtrade gold.
