Now surprisingly long ago, we had the Canonical/Ubuntu push to take
advantage of the supercomputer performance of (the latest) mobile

That was abandoned and is now a community project:

Ubuntu Touch


"Ubuntu Touch is a mobile version of the Ubuntu operating system for
mobile devices. However, unlike other 'flavors' of Ubuntu such as Mate,
Mint and Gnome, it is more accurately an extract of parts of Ubuntu. It
is adapted to run naturally in a mobile, touch-screen environment but is
also capable of functioning as a desktop computer..."
