Plasma Mobile is a Plasma variant for smartphones. It is currently available for the Pinephone, and supported devices for postmarketOS such as the OnePlus 6.
After Plasma Active sponsor Coherent Theory (under the Make·Play·Live brand) had given up their ambitions to release a tablet computer, Blue Systems emerged as new sponsor and shifted the focus of Plasma's handheld work towards smartphones.
The official announcement of the new form-factor interface was on 25 July 2015 at Akademy, accompanied by a working prototype running on a Nexus 5. Plasma Mobile runs on Wayland and it is compatible with Ubuntu Touch applications. While not a priority, Android application support through Anbox could eventually come to the OS.
PinePhone - KDE Community Edition was made available as pre-orders on 1 December 2020.
