Every Android phone has a very similar level of that, can you expand a little?
My friend bought the OP7 Pro and he loves it. Another friend bought a Pixel 4XL and he loves that.
OP6/6T is likely to have more established development on XDA though since its an older model.

Thanks for your reply!
I would like to have a phone with large sensitive high quality screen I will use it mainly for Journalling and personal productivity. This is sensitive personal information so don't want this to be available to anyone but me. I want my phone to be a place so that everything I do, say, watch is private. Did they really make that impossible? Want to limit profile building and keep my activity private: What apps I use, when i use the phone, Browsing, watching media, my journal entries. habit tracking, login to websites, location tracking and so forth. So a phone which is reasonably modifiable so someone like me ( willing to spend time and effort figuring out how to take the right steps to install a custom ROM without ruining the phone and learn more about it after) can install this setup below (basic setup for now), without having to be a developer/phone expert.
Also want to be able to pay using cryptocurrencies without someone knowing what apps I used and when, so my transactions are private.
I have another phone which I can use for just occasional banking to keep that separate. Some banking apps will need proprietary apps and Google play services to work i think? I can turn that one off and just use it when I need it.
Can you explain me how sheltering works? If I shelter my journaling and to do apps will they be safe? So no information can leak?
Will apps like the protonmail app or signal work on a setup like this?
Some people advised me a Pixel 3aXL with Graphene OS
Other advised me a Oneplus 6/6t or 7 pro with Lineage OS
Why and when would I need microG? If i use apps that makes use of the Google Framework Services in order to work?
So as far as I understand some apps will work but wont push notifications?
Lineage OS with MicroG = More convenient and push notifications?
Graphene OS is more private and secure but no push notifications?
I think for my use Lineage OS with MicroG will be sufficient for my "threat" model. Is that correct?
Thanks for helping me out!
