What is the UP Phone?

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 “feel” of the OS will be similar to Google Android phones, but the UP Phone is completely liberated from Google Mobile Services (GMS) and all of the surveillance their system entails. Go deeper to learn more here.

Our system is secure by design and free of Big Tech components designed to track, monitor and monetize. We protect you from spying and intrusion while providing the user experience, you’ve come to expect.

The Inspiration

Early settlers left big cities and established civilization to claim raw, untamed land and a future for their families. They sacrificed near term comfort to achieve a future of promise and prosperity.

We live in a vastly different world, and yet some things are the same. The digital world is crowded with tech behemoths - large, dirty digital cities, where freedoms are eroding and prying eyes are everywhere.

Venturing to a more private world requires a pioneering spirit. But it’s worth it. Human rights are invaluable.

How does the UP Phone keep my data secured?

UP Phone is designed to secure your data and protect your privacy. While most modern phones encrypt your data, the operating system of the phone is not privacy oriented. In fact it is designed to monetize your private data.

UP Phone mitigates these vulnerabilities by having an operating system that has no vendor-designed ecosystem built to extract and analyze data. UP Phone also gives a user more visibility, control and awareness of third-party data usage and risks in case a third-party app must be used.

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 state-of-the-art hardware and is equipped to work with the three U.S. big mobile carriers once fully verified.

Currently, T-Mobile is supported. We are actively pursuing verification with AT&T. We anticipate it will be ready prior to shipment of your pre-order phone. We plan to also become verified with Verizon, but the process is more involved.

Another class of cell service are Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs). Examples are PureTalk (AT&T), Patriot Mobile (all 3 providers) and Mint Mobile (T-Mobile). MVNOs on the T-Mobile network will also work with the UP Phone.

What is the price of the phone?

The phone’s price is $949 plus $25 shipping.

Will there be sales tax?

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

Why is Unplugged doing a pre-order?

Manufacturing constraints necessitate minimum quantity order sizes. We have momentum, and we’ve already produced a first-batch production run of the phone, which are going out to customers the first part of October 2023.

One of our distribution partners has already committed to a sizable order. To put production in motion for Batch 2, we’ve set a goal to presell an additional 6000 units.

When will the phones go into production?

Once we reach 6000 presales, we will immediately start production for Batch 2 of the UP Phone.

How long will it take to produce and deliver the phones?

To be safe, we’re estimating 150 calendar days after meeting the presales objective. We have good reason to believe it could be faster.

How can I track the status of my order?

Upon order confirmation, you will receive an email with your confirmation code. As we approach delivery, you will receive a notification and will be able to track your order on the Unplugged website. If you have any questions, you can always contact us at support@unplugged.com.
