Summary

The company (which seems to also be called "Freedom Phone") claims to have made an "uncensorable app store" that won't ban Gab and Parler the way Google and Apple did. The Freedom Phone company claims it will do that, saying, "We built our own app store that is completely uncensored. Even if they contain malware, porn, or illegal content?And while the Freedom Phone company provides almost no information about the device, various conservative Internet personalities have posted hands-on videos of the phone, and it does not look like the Freedom Phone company has built an app store at all.As pointed out by XDA's Mishaal Rahman on Twitter, the phone's "PatriApp" Store appears to be no more than a rebranded Aurora Store, an open source client for the Play Store. It would be possible to rig up the open source Aurora client to connect to something other than the Google app store, but the presence of so many major app vendors indicates that the Freedom Phone is simply piping in the Play Store. The only other (much less likely) explanation is piracy.The video presenters don't seem to understand that they're looking at the Play Store, and they all claim they're using the "uncensorable" Freedom Phone app store.
