KDE Neon itself is based upon Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial), (not Ubuntu Touch).
This image is based on the dev-unstable branch of KDE Neon, and always ships the latest versions of KDE frameworks, kwin and Plasma Mobile.
This image uses Halium as hardware adaption layer.

PostmarketOS (pmOS), is a touch-optimized, pre-configured Alpine Linux that can be installed on smartphones and other mobile devices. The project is at very early stages of development and is not usable for most users yet.
