Andy Rubin shows off the next Essential device with its bizarre design


This year, 2019 has been the revolution in the smartphone industry. We have seen a wide range of smartphones with a huge display with abnormal aspect ratio, multiple cameras, even foldable phones. If you think all the creativity of the smartphone industry ends here, there is something new for you which might surprise you with its bizarre design.

Essential founder Andy Rubin who was earlier the co-founder of Android has just teased the company’s next smartphone, and it’s, well, different, I must say, completely different from what smartphones you have seen in this generation. 

The next-gen Essential device comes with the tallest display that you have ever seen on any phone. It almost looks like an opened clamshell, except it’s not a clamshell and it doesn’t ‘close’. It’s taller and narrower than anything we’ve seen so far, and there’s a whole new UI to go with that, which we’re assuming runs on top of Android, but Rubin hasn’t said anything about the software so there’s a chance it could be something else entirely.

The mapping app that is shown in the picture doesn’t look to be Google Maps from any angle. The whole interface seems to be based on vertically scrolling cards.

As for the specs that we have managed to figure out from the image and video. The Essential Phone has a huge camera bump that only seems to house one sensor on the back, a possible fingerprint sensor under that, and a hole-punch selfie cam in the display. Despite its length, the phone seems quite tiny compared to what’s considered mainstream in this day and age.

Apart from this, no more details have been shared by the company neither about pricing nor about availability. However, as the prototypes are already there, we can expect to have some more details over this phone in the coming days.
