Essential Founder Andy Rubin Shows off Next Essential Gem Phone!

Andy Rubin tweets photos of shapely new Essential phone Andy Rubin shows off a phone with a 'radically different formfactor'

Besides the look and feel of such an unorthodox form-factor, it's also worth noting that a new UI such as the one previewed on the Essential Phone could take awhile when it comes to app integration. Andy Rubin, the Essential founder and CEO who is also credited with co-founding the Android operating system, shared the first look of the company's upcoming phone that has a unique design and the form factor looks more like a TV-remote than a smartphone. The gadget sports a shape we don't typically associate with smartphones, and some pretty wild colors. As far as through the live images and video, we can tell that Essential phone 2 features are in gradient finish with color-shifting material and have a punch-hole camera with one sensor.

Essential says the company has been working on this device to "reframe your perspective" on mobile, and the device is in "early testing" outside its labs. It's clear that the 360 camera accessory from the Essential Phone is not compatible with this new phone.

At present, no release date information has been offered for the upcoming device, though we'd expect an official announcement to come in the not-too-distant future.

Advance polls for federal election open Friday
The voter information card shows where to vote on election day and the location of the voter's poll from among 22 advance polls. There are more than 115 campuses in Canada where you can register and vote in the federal election.

At the rear of the device, there's a large single-camera module on the phone, along with a odd recessed circular... thing. You can also see a small speaker grill at the top of the device, while bezels look decently thin as well. There may be a voice assistant in the new essential phone which is called " fingerprint walkie talkie" mode. There is no word when Essential will launch the device and the details are scarce.

According to a report by XDA Developers, the new Essential Project GEM smartphone could run Android and may be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor.
