Essential Phone is the new high-end Android smartphone created by the father of Android, Andy Rubin. It will come with top of the line hardware and will cost around $700.
Design-wise, the device looks absolutely stunning. On the front, it features a beautiful edge to edge display with some space reserved for the front facing camera. On the back side, you will find a dual camera setup with no branding whatsoever. Unlike the other aluminum built devices out there, the body of the Essential Phone is made out of titanium and ceramic material. Which allows it to handle the drops “without blemish, unlike the aluminum competitor devices.”
The smartphone will feature the latest generation Qualcomm 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, 13 MP dual camera setup, and 8 MP secondary camera. The dual camera setup will serve in taking better low light photos. Rather than using it to create the bokeh effect, the second lens is used as a monochrome sensor to provide the better low light performance. Both primary and secondary cameras are capable of capturing 4k video.
The Essential Phone will support some modular accessories, the company is planning to launch a range of supported modular accessories for the smartphone. Essential will ship a 360-degree camera that attaches to the top of the phone. The company will later offer a charging dock for the consumers. All these modular accessories will connect to the phone magnetically via the tiny metal pins. Speaking of add-on accessories, the phone doesn’t feature a traditional 3.5mm audio jack. It will ship with the headphone dongle provided in the box.
The Essential Phone is launching in the US for $699. The first batch will start shipping in June.
Stay tuned for the updates.
