Our smartphones come with an operating system that has been preloaded onto it. In this day and age, we’re pretty much limited to either iOS or Android. This is versus PCs where users have slightly more options. In fact, on PCs, users have the ability to dual boot operating systems, where two OS can live on a single device.

The good news is that if you wanted that feature for mobile, you’re in luck because Planet Computers has launched a new smartphone in the form of the Cosmo Communicator. With this smartphone, the company claims that it will be capable of dual booting both Android and Linux, or if you want, you can even add Debian.

Users will be able to multi-boot from these operating systems without them replacing each other, although the downside is that users will need to know how to partition their storage and also know their way around the boot menu, so this is definitely not something for your average smartphone user.

We imagine that this is a very niche device and if you’re interested in checking it out, head on over to Planet Computers’ website for the details. You will also be able to purchase the handset where it is being sold for £665.83​.
