Essential Phone

This is the Essential PH-1 smartphone created by the father of Android, Andy Rubin. It has all the features you’ve came to love on a handheld device, although it does ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack (presumably this is deemed non-essential) in favour of Bluetooth headphones. It puts the fingerprint sensor on the back of the device, which is becoming more common as this is where your fingers naturally rest. A dual camera setup on the back can take huge photos as well as 4K video, while a front facing 8MP camera can take high-res selfies. The almost bezel-less design takes the screen right up to the top of the device, making everyone with a smartphone take one look at their current phone and just think of it as dirt now for having so much wasted space. The titanium and ceramic build mean that you can drop this thing on the floor with minimal (if any) damage. Another interesting choice in this hardware is the two magnetic pins on the back of the device that allow you to connect accessories such as the Essential 360-degree camera, and the charging dock, seamlessly.

The Essential PH-1 smartphone is expected to be available around June in the US, with no confirmed date for the UK.
