Essential Phone (PH-1) Andy Rubin was not such a hit, as many had hoped. Nevertheless, Essential smartphone still has its undoubted advantages, for example, the display “from edge to edge”, as well as quick updates that allowed users to install Android 9 Pie before the new version reached the rest of users using Android. devices.
By the end of last year, the Essential Phone was discontinued, and now Slash Gear has found evidence that the Essential Phone (PH-2) is being developed.
Images found by the publication show that the Essential Phone sequel can have a frameless screen from edge to edge without a cutout. Instead of “bangs,” as the images show, Essential Phone 2 can include one camera and one sensor hidden behind the display, which will become partially transparent upon user request.
According to reports, Essential is considering using this feature with an LCD display or OLED panel. Another drawing shows a fingerprint scanner located at the bottom of the display. At the top of the screen is the visible camera for self, embedded in the display. This image was taken from the Essential patent relating to the fingerprint scanner embedded in the display, for which reason the translucent screen we mentioned above was not included in the sketch.
Previous rumors about the new Essential Phone smartphone have reported a completely new type of mobile device that could make appointments, respond to emails and text messages, becoming the “virtual version” of the user. It is not yet known whether we will see these features in the next Essential Phone.
In recent documents supporting one of the US mobile operators, the Essential Phone PH-2 smartphone was mentioned, which leads us to believe that in the near future, Android founder Andy Rubin’s company will introduce a new revolutionary smartphone.
