Essential Project Gem phone is taller and thinner than usual - Mobile Phones

Andy Rubin tweets photos of shapely new Essential phone

Andy Rubin tweets photos of shapely new Essential phone

Essential founder Andy Rubin also shared images of the new device on Twitter, stating that it employed a new user interface to accommodate its radically different form factor.

These photos came from Rubin's personal Twitter account, and not Essential Product's corporate account.

Essential's first product, the Essential Phone, was released in 2017 for $699, and which featured a powerful camera.

Essential has gone through several rounds of layoffs since that launch, but it has still managed to keep the Essential Phone up-to-date.

Producer prices decline 0.3% in September
Almost half of the drop in services was attributed to a 2.7 per cent decrease in machinery and vehicle wholesaling. The so-called core PPI increased 1.7% in the 12 months through September after climbing 1.9% in August.

We've been working on a new device to reframe your perspective on mobile. As Rubin claims, the UI looks quite different with the apps opened up like cards on the long screen. Last year Rubin suggested a way to solve phone addiction is by moving to a "relatively small" screen combined with software that responds mostly to voice commands - is this it?

If you're anxious that non-foldable smartphone design has gotten stale and familiar in recent years, you may find Essential's next Android handset to be right up your alley. Because the only other UI the company has ever used was on its first smartphone.

That being said, it appears as though the tile design of the apps only stays that way until you tap on something to open things up properly. However, from the images we could see the handset running a Maps app with widgets on audio streaming apps, clock, Gallery and some shortcuts to Phone, Camera, Messages and more. 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. The former was pretty simple, showcasing the phone's form factor, while the second demonstrated the Colorshift material of the device's exterior. As you turn the phone in your hands, the colors shift to look like a different color.
