From the tiny teaser, it appears to hold a compact and bezel-less design with rounded (towards the edges) display and screen. Also, if a separate report was to be considered the smartphone could be one with 4G and hybrid dual-sim support. It’ll most probably run on a Snapdragon 835 SoC with a 360 degree internal camera attachment. Also, there’s a buzz that the phone could be priced around $749 (Rs. 51000 approx).
Talking about Andy Robin, he left Google two years ago and has been working on his individual startup since then. According to the reports, his new startup is named ‘Essential’ and he has recruited around 40 employees to work for him. After a while of wait and hard work ‘Essential’ is all geared up with its first smartphone. As per Andy Rubin, it could very well compete with top end smartphone makers like Apple, Samsung and Google.
Let’s wait and see what he has in store for us!
