LineageOS 19 adds support for the Poco X3 and three other phones

LineageOS is one of the best custom ROMs available, bringing new versions of Android and a pure software experience to many different phones and tablets. LineageOS 19 officially arrived earlier this week, based on Android 12, and now more devices have been added to the list.

LineageOS 19 launched with a total of 41 supported phones and tablets, including Google Pixel 5, Asus Zenfone 8, Motorola One Power and Razer Phone 2. Since then, four more devices have been added to the list: Motorola G100 / Motorola Edge S, Nubia Mini 5G , Xiaomi Poco X3 / X3 NFC and original Razer phone. It’s a decent mix of old and new devices, and all of them were supported on earlier versions of Lineage except the Nubia Mini.

In addition to the new LineageOS 19 phones, OnePlus 7 is now supported again under LineageOS 18.1 (based on Android 11). There is a chance that it may be upgraded to LineageOS 19 later as the maintainers continue to work on the port but we will have to wait and see.

LineageOS 19 is based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), giving it a warehouse-like look and function set, but the Lineage team implemented a few extra goodies. The operating system has a redesigned volume panel, an updated Gallery app, custom icons, and a handful of built-in replacements for standard Google apps based on other open source projects. If you’ve on a mission to use a de-Googled Android phone, LineageOS 19 is a solid choice, though you can still flash Google apps on top of it as always to retain the usual Android features (like the Play Store).

More developers are likely to continue to port LineageOS 19 to more devices over the coming weeks and months, so if you can not see your favorite phone or tablet in the current list, just get stuck. You can also contribute to the Lineage project using PayPal and Patreon, which help cover server costs and development time.
