Join the movement for freedom of mobile


NECUNOS NC_1 aims to be 100% open-source from metal to pixel, hardware to software.

By having open-source components for the hardware, you can be sure of the privacy and security in your mobile device. Components were chosen for their ability to run free and open software without any binaries and having public technical datasheets available for everyone. NECUNOS NC_1 will bring you back in control of your device. These open components are well suited for FOSS communities to build their FOSS software on.

Today there are really only two mobile operating systems with basically identical hardware from a few big manufacturers, they are all poor options regarding privacy. It seems like you have a choice, but all the options are near identical on the hardware and software level. With NECUNOS NC_1 you can choose from multiple different open-source community driven mobile operating systems and be part of their development efforts, be part of the movement towards privacy and the movement towards mobile choice.

The first NECUNOS NC_1 community edition is aimed for developers, early adopters, FOSS and Linux enthusiasts. It does not have a cellular modem for security and privacy reasons so you can be sure there is no backdoor access through it in your device. It is a secure hardware platform, but the end goal for NECUNOS mobile devices is to be fully featured privacy oriented open-source smartphone. NECUNOS NC_1 is manufactured in Finland, ensuring supply chain security and highest quality for the device.

About Us

Necunos provides the most transparent and secure complete mobile solution.

We started with creating a secure communications software but realized that it wont be secure if its running on Android or iOS where data collection and backdoor access is inevitable. We decided to create our own Linux-based up-to-date independent operating system that would respect peoples privacy and provide them with transparent security. Once we got deep into the hardware and operating systems we noticed we couldn't trust the hardware running our operating system. There are too many unknowns and too many closed firmwares running in there. We decided to go and create the most transparent and clean mobile hardware and software stack solution where the user can be absolutely sure that his communications are secured and privacy respected.
