Starting a project for a new type of phone

Hi, I have a Idea for a phone that I have not been able to find on the market.
I wanted a simple phone that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to get and will 
last a long time. So far, the closest thing to that is the pinephone. It doesn't 
tickle me right, so I'll just try and make my own.

I want to make a phone that 
-doesn't waste your money
-low cost (only essential features and others depending on feedback)
-repair friendly
-consumer friendly (No locked down OS/more options/no bloatware)
-Environment friendly
 -American made (Support local economy/anti slave labor)

I want to work with a 3D modeler(Likely multiple) to help with concepts
that we can use over on kickstarter to actually get it off of the ground.
If I do get enough money, I'll be able to get some people together to try
and paint a more detailed plan for the device and company that will be
needed to make this work.
