Librem 5‘s from the Aspen batch have started shipping to early backers so we’ve done a roundup of some of the best photos and videos shared by us and others as well as some never seen before photos.


Black Anodized Aluminum Chassis

The Librem 5 case has evolved to a black anodized aluminium shell (with non-metal backing to keep radio reception quality high) with flush, easy-to-slide hardware kill switches.

From the Factory Floor

The Purism factory is ready to ship thousands of Librem 5s to backers over the coming months.

Shell and Applications

Just look at how great PureOS with GNOME and our default applications look on mobile!

PureOS is secure and easy to update for any user.

Discover the Librem 5

Purism believes building the Librem 5 is just one step on the road to launching a digital rights movement, where we—the people—stand up for our digital rights, where we place the control of your data and your family’s data back where it belongs: in your own hands.
