What makes UP Phone different?

The UP phone is a privacy-first, secure smartphone designed by cybersecurity professionals for everyday use. The UP Phone runs the proprietary LibertOS operating system, a custom OS built on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

The OS feels similar to Google Android phones, but the UP Phone is liberated from Google Mobile Services (GMS) and Google’s self-serving surveillance. UP Phone is free of “big tech” components designed to track, monitor and monetize. Go deeper here.

Why are we doing this?

Our entire team sees extraordinary erosion of privacy, freedom of speech and other human rights through invasive technologies. The company is on a mission to stem the tide against Big Tech and Big Government, by making privacy accessible and convenient for everyone.

How does the UP Phone keep my data secured?

UP Phone protects your privacy and data by design. While most modern phones encrypt your data, their operating systems are designed to exploit and monetize your private data.

UP Phone is designed from a completely different premise. Our operating system is built to secure and safeguard - not monetize. We also provide more visibility, risk-awareness and control as you use third-party apps.

Additional Specifications

Powered by a best-in-class Dimensity octa-core CPU enabling AI, camera, and multimedia. Beautiful 6.67" FHD+ AMOLED screen with sharp resolution: 1080x2400. Protected with tough Gorilla Glass. Room to spare: 256GB of storage, 8GB RAM.

With which mobile carriers does Unplugged work?

The UP Phone is equipped to work with the three big U.S. mobile carriers once fully verified. The phone currently supports T-Mobile’s network. We anticipate verification on AT&T’s network prior to shipment of pre-order phones. We are pursuing verification with Verizon, but the process is more involved.

Another class of cell service are Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs.) Examples include Patriot Mobile and Mint Mobile, MVNOs on the T-Mobile network will also work with the UP Phone.

Will there be sales tax?

It depends on your state of residence. Our cart will calculate the sales tax where applicable on checkout.

When will I receive my UP Phone if I order now?

The UP Phone is not a prototype. It is production smartphone with the premium hardware and a unique combination of privacy-protecting device features and software.
