LineageOS Adds The Pixel C and LG V20 Variants to The Portfolio

The team at LineageOS continues to shine with more new devices added to their supported device list this week.  The headliner of those new devices are the Google Pixel C tablet and the GSM unlocked and Sprint variants of the LG V20.  On the latter, with these two added, it means that the company now supports all US-based variants of the V20, a first for them.

The ROM builds for the Pixel C will be available starting on Monday, June 5th while the other ROMs for the other devices are now available.  The new devices include the BQ Aquaris U Plus and the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus while owners of the Motorola Photon Q and eEco Le Max 2 are now on the Android Nougat based 14.1 train.

Along with the new device support from the LineageOS team, there are also a number of improvements and fixes in the latest updates to the platform.  Perhaps most notably is the stoppage of recording sensitive phone numbers in the default dialer.  These would include numbers for domestic or sexual abuse, suicide hotlines and other types of numbers.  The EU has compelled the company not to record these numbers and the LineageOS team is asking for your help in making sure that all such numbers are identified.  You can get more details on the site and you can also check out the full change log there too.
