    Updates for newer devices?

    Hello this is my first post. I was wondering since newest update 2019.2 released why there aren't many new device compatibility available yet?
    most of the devices supports are 3-5 years old. Granted Nethunter isn't supposed to support every new device but i think some new gen models from Xiaomi/Pixel/Moto/Oneplus should be natively compatible with nethunter. Otherwise it's hard to find specific handsets which are market out like 3-4 years ago.

    Great question :-)

    We are working on newer models as we speak but unfortunately they are all pretty expensive.
    We were spoiled a few years back when we could get top spec devices for killer prices, like the Nexus series and the Oneplus One but those days are over.

    Do you have any particular handset in mind that tickles your fancy?

    Would really love to see it for the Pixel 3. I've tried a few times to build a kernel following the instructions on the wiki but have had no luck.

    Would like to see something like Moto G7 run it. Pretty cheap phone, but pretty good specs.

    BTW, I'm a techie, but don't know anything about Linux on phones, or porting.

    I'm a noob when it comes to the development but... are we really stuck with older devices? I've installed NetHunter on every nexus device I own but they've really aged and they're driving me crazy. I found a post of someone trying to build a kernel for the razer phone 2 but other than that nothing. I would love to run NetHunter on a brand new device for once.

    If you want the latest and greatest then you should get a OnePlus 7 (Pro). Top specs and full NetHunter support for half the price of comparable phones.

    Hey, thanks for the answer! The pro version is bit expensive. Is the OnePlus 7 (cheaper version with notch) equally supported? I?m having trouble finding any comparisons on this matter. Thanks again and happy new year as well!

    What would be the next best device after the OnePlus 7 / OnePlus 7 Pro? I am buying a new phone and trying to find something that will run NetHunter well that is a little less than the OnePlus 7. I have looked through the entire list on kali.org and I started to think it was just a list that was no longer maintained because of how old the devices are and the statement that the documentation has moved. When you go to the new documentation link I don't see the same type of supported list for NetHunter (full), only Lite. Am I missing it?

    Thank you for posting this! I had the exact same reaction to the original article. The reality is that the big players in the Android space just do not update their devices, except for the flagships, and even those for no more than one or maybe two major Android versions. Unfortunately, this is one dimension in which Apple wins hands down.
