To the best of our knowledge, the is the only smartphone around with a OpenPGP smart card reader. In this post I talk about why that's such a big deal:

@kyle This is one of my favorite things about the Librem 5 and is why I'm so excited to get one! :)

@kyle really cool! are there any considerable differences between using a smartcard with the built-in reader vs. something like a USB-C one, besides not having to hassle with carrying around the USB-C card separately?

@twrightsman From a GPG smart card perspective it should be identical. The main difference you'd see is that a lot of USB security tokens (including the Librem Key) also have a separate chip and flash storage and perform other security features (2FA, password vault, U2F etc) instead of *just* traditional smart card functions.
