Recently, the LineageOS team released LineageOS 17.1 based on the Android 10 system. This version supports all devices that have been officially supported by LineageOS. This is the first version of LineageOS based on the Android 10 system released by Google last year.

Since this version is based on the first update received by Pixel released last December, it was named LineageOS 17.1. LineageOS 17.1 adds a lot of functions and hardware support, and currently supports hardware and functions such as screen fingerprint recognition, pop-up camera, Wi-Fi Display, etc. At the same time, the default launcher Trebuchet Launcher can also use biometrics to hide or encrypt applications.
