Software engineer eager to install stock Android on the latest-processor-camera phone. Suggestions?

Search This thread
I am a decade long user of Apple phones who wants to install stock Android (AOSP) in a latest device and help the community by contributing while learning from the rich experience at XDA.

I have over a decade of software engineering experience (C++, Java, Python) , comfortable in Linux.

Which device would you folks suggest is the latest process-camera phone I start with as a newbie?

Welcome to XDA!
Nice you made the jump to Android, here you will find a lot of knowledge and a great community.
If camera wise choosing, perhaps i would go for

Huawei Mate 40 Pro​

I think I already answered in the welcome PM but I'm gonna do it again here so everyone sees my answer.
IMO (ranked brands):

1-Google: Best brand for modding, gud camera, stock android experience and google features very cewl
2-Oneplus: Good for modding, meh camera (let's see if Hasselblad improves something), close to stock experience+oneplus feature cool
3-Samsung: Bad for modding, Very gud cam, Very gud hardware, not stock android, everyone has a different opinion on OneUI so idk maybe u like it+meh Samsung features (lotsa bloatwares)
.
.
Last-Huawei: Impossible to mod (no bootloader unlocking), Very gud cam, Very gud hardware, not stock, no google for u my friend+meh features...
I know I'm biased for this one because I'm still annoyed by the fact they do not unlock bootloaders anymore (even though it's been 2 year)
