I have a Xiaomi Mi A2 (jasmine_sprout) and I'm looking to replace it. However, I'm not looking for just hardware and brand. I'd like to have a device that have a strong community supporting it, offering official releases with active development for custom ROMS.

My Mi A2 was a good phone but has been tough to find official releases for custom ROMs. I think the only "mainstream" custom ROM I know that has official support is LineageOS - the others are all nightly-builds or unofficial releases.

Excluding Samsung devices, which ones have a descent active development community? That goes without saying but I'm looking for devices that don't have security crap (like Knox) and are highly customizable.
