You have a bit of choice:-

Linux based:-

Pinephone, (will allow you to run a choice of different Linux based 

Sailfish - https://sailfishos.org/  with offerings from Jolla - 

Volla - https://volla.online/en/index.html

Then there's the android based things but without the google 

Lineage - https://lineageos.org/  - this is very much a case of rolling 
your own

/e/ or Murena - https://e.foundation/  - very polished, competent and 
stable build that leaves you in charge - uses Micro-G service for the 
apps, but pretty much what you need will be good to go right out of the 
box.  Wide range of hardware compatibility. Free cloud services offering 
too which is based on Nextcloud.

Graphene OS - https://grapheneos.org/ - a miliary-grade 'droid right out 
of the box that also leaves you in charge. Doggedly reliable, only runs 
on Pixel hardware.
