Thanks for a quick response.
First, there is no sim card installed so I am using it like a small tablet.
The chipset is EXYNOS8890.
I ALSO HAVE A BLUETOOTH KEYBOARD, if that helps.
I can have constant wifi by using my s9+ phone.
None of the above matters until you can get it booting it to Linux,
all wireless options (bluetooth, wifi, sim/data) are irrelevant until
you get it booting to a userspace wher you can bring any of that up.
I'm not sure any of the exynos8 kernel stuff is even upstream yet,
unfortunately unless you know quite a bit about low level kernel and
boot debug I don't think you're going to have a lot of luck.
