Now that's what I am looking for, as well. I would prefer that it is either 
TDE software, or vanilla Devuan/Debian. Konqueror would be perfect, as it's 
what I normally use as a file manager. (I have almost never used it as a web 
browser, though I hear good things.) 

Between that, and being able to build my own smartphone (or at least buy 
something like a PinePhone), I would be all set, and might even decide not to 
abandon smartphones altogether.
