Portable external touchscreen monitor compatible with Purism

I’m looking for a portable touchscreen monitor, 15 inch or larger, that works both with Librem 13" & iphone 6. Has anyone found a good one?

Hi ! Asus has had some good options on the market for some years now but until i see some proper open-hardware/free-software docking-stations coming out for the Librem 5 i will not buy anything of the sorts …

The Asus MB16AC uses USB-C and does not have HDCP DRM, which I have verified with their support, so I would recommend that.

I think it might be a problem: USB-C Port Active

Specs on Purism web site (for both Librem 13 and Librem 15) say, regarding USB ports, “(1 type C, data transfer only)”. (my emphasis)

Is it touchscreen though?

Does it work with iPhone 6?

that one from above no.

this one and it’s smaller brother is though > https://www.asus.com/us/Monitors/VT229H/

and more in line with the above given example > https://www.asus.com/Monitors/ZenScreen-MB16AMT/specifications/

Even says that the touch functionality is Linux-compatible. Doesn’t help the iPhone 6 though. LOL.
