The father of Andriod, Andy Rubin introduced his Essential Phone in an exclusive post by verge.

According to many tech blogs, this phone is surely superior to any other phone available in the market currently. Andy introduced better modular eco-system and bezel-less display in his phone. ‘Essential Phone’ not just look good, it also has better hardware. And it is also running on its own customises Artificial Intelligence too. In short, this is the best phone you can get in 2017.

Sadly, initially ‘Essential Phone’ will be making its entry in the USA only. Scroll down to read more about the phone.

Bezel-less display.

Bezel-less display is not new. You have already seen it on Xiaomi Mix. But ‘Essential’s’ displsy is not as bezel-less as Xiomi Mix because you are going to have a slefie shutter on top of this phone.

Though the phone has better bezel management when compared with Samsung S8, this is not the thinnest bezel-less device we have seen.


The phone comes with magnetic connectors, which means supported modular devices can be connected to the device. This is actually the sector that probably most of the phone companies will be focusing in 2018, but Essential introducing the magnetic support in its very first Gen. device is going to help a lot in R&D. Again, the magnetic connectors are not what we are seeing for the first time, but this is probably the best management of it that we are seeing.

Though there are very limited magnetic supported devices available in the market, Essential will be shipped with a 360-degree camera and a charging dock (if the customer chooses that in the package while ordering).


The phone is tagged at $699!! Yes, the company is new and is not standing at any position to charge prices like iPhone and Samsung, but it will be great to watch what really happens when the device actually gets hands-on to see if the device manages to perform according to on-paper specs.


With some great features like Bezel-less display and magnetic connector support, the device is obviously expected to rock a good hardware inside. And as expected the phone does feature the best and notch parts wherever possible.

For the processors, we get latest and fastest Snapdragon 835 processor backed up by 4GB of RAM.

For all the photogenic people out there, the phone features 13-megapixel dual camera setup at the back and an 8-megapixel front camera with 4K recording support.

The phone supports a 5.7-inch 2560×1312 bezel-less display protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The phone is 7.8mm thin and supports fast charging on 3040mAh battery via USB-C. The phone has 128GB of internal storage but unlucky no support for MicroSD card is provided.
