I'm new to OpenWrt and bought a KuWFI 4G LTE CPE Router from Aliexpress:

Any recommendations on which OpenWrt build is supported with that or has even someone managed to install OpenWrt on this router?

Hardware specs are as following:

This is not supported, and I would not expect it to be any time soon.

It is Qualcomms modem platform. I.e the system you find inside the USB sticks, mini pcie modules or m.2 modules. You can probably port OpenWrt to the arm application cpu, but you'd need to support the baseband cpu somehow to get the modem working. And driver support for other peripherals, like ethernet, might also be an issue. I don't know.
