LineageOS 19 already adds support for a lot more phones

Get a taste of stock Android 12, even if you do not have a Pixel

LineageOS continues to be one of the best alternative ROMs available these days, and it is also one with a very long pedigree (pun intended). It got its start as CyanogenMod just over a decade ago, before all kinds of drama led to the fork we know today as Lineage. The big new 19 release officially debuted earlier this week, based on Android 12, and if you want to check it out, we have good news for you – the list of supported LineageOS 19 devices is already expanding.

Owners of Xiaomi Poco X3 / X3 NFC, Motorola G100 / Edge S, Nubia Mini 5G and the original Razer Phone can now enjoy the latest official builds of LineageOS 19 (via XDA). Both the Poco X3 and Motorola Edge S are still actively supported devices, while the Nubia Mini 5G and OG Razer Phone both run outdated software and could certainly benefit from this kind of attention. In addition, LineageOS 18.1 has acquired support for OnePlus 7, which opens the door for it to possibly handle the journey to 19 in the future.

The first wave of official 19 support included phones from Google, Samsung, Motorola, Asus and OnePlus, and while some devices may have to be dropped due to some changes in the AOSP network, the list of LineageOS 19 phones will almost certainly continue to grow. over the next few weeks and months.

To give it a try, be sure to unlock your bootloader and then start reading up on the installation process. As with any custom ROM, proceed at your own risk – there is always a chance of breaking if you do not know what you are doing, nor is there any guarantee that the software you are installing is error-free.
