Making a phone that avoids Big-Tech spying is one thing (yep, we did that). Making a convergent operating system that is not Android nor iOS is another (yep, we did that too). But manufacturing that phone in the USA is a feat that few thought possible (yep, did that just now). Not only have we proved it’s possible… it’s shipping.

The Librem 5 USA
One of the many industry-changing goals Purism had set—and now accomplished—was to manufacture our Librem 5 phone in the USA, including doing all electronics manufacturing in our facility (note: we have already been doing this for a few years with the Librem Key—Made in the USA). The Librem 5 USA is a revolutionary phone with immense differentiators compared with the rest of the mobile phone industry. Making the most secure phone demands being able to have full verification of all steps from releasing schematics, using Made in USA electronics, releasing all source code, isolating hardware components, and running an Operating System that is under the full control of the customer—that is not cryptographically forced into Big-Tech’s oppressive and exploitative control—The Librem 5 USA is all of those things.
