“Mini computer” Nokia 1680 running Linux operating system-Hi-tech fashion

The Nokia 1680 was a simple push-button phone released in 2008, when smartphones were just starting to appear.

At the time of release, Nokia 1680 only supports 2G with the functions of calling, receiving and sending messages… of traditional phones. However, a hacker and hardware enthusiast with the nickname Remu NotMoe recently turned the Nokia 1680 into a full-fledged Linux computer. Remu NotMoe has called its project Notkia.

To do this, Remu NotMoe has created a special printed circuit board for the Nokia 1680 with the processor, memory and other components, although the keyboard is completely original. Specifically, this board has a 1GHz single-core MIPS Ingenic X100E processor, 64MB of RAM, 32MB of NOR internal memory, and 4GB of SLC NAND.

Due to the ability to support a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, while the 2-inch IPS screen size on the Nokia 1680 supports a resolution of 220 x 280 pixels, the content around the edge cannot be seen.

Some other features of the Nokia 1280 “Mini Computer” include USB-C port, Waveshare OV5640 5 MP camera with autofocus, Yamaha MA-3 sound chip, MEMS microphone, AMPAK adapter with Wi-Fi Fi 4 and BT 4.0 LE, Semtech SX126x LoRa transceiver and PL-5C battery.


It all runs on Linux, including the phone’s original numeric keypad text entry. T9 keyboard technology is also supported. The device can be used as a computer, walkie-talkie or modem. But Notkia doesn’t know how to make a phone call. The fact is that Remu NotMoe could not find a compact enough 4G LTE module.

Remu NotMoe described schemas, components, lists, and design processes on Hackster and Hackday. In the future, the author promises to open the source code of the firmware.
