Android co-founder Andy Rubin is all set to launch a top-of-the-line smartphone. The glimpse was small, showing only a corner of the new phone made by Rubin's company, the Essential Products, Inc. The company jumped on Twitter today to announce that "something big" is coming this May 30. The company confirmed this news on its official Twitter account.
The reports also say that the Essential team is gearing up on a feature similar to Apple's 3D Touch and magnetic charging capabilities, which seems to position Rubin's new company as iPhone rival rather than other Android-powered hardware. More so, the smartphone was also spotted on a popular benchmarking site, GFXBench, showing off some key specifications of the upcoming Android-powered phone by Rubin.
According to a source, the benchmark listing shows a model number Essential FIH-PM1, as the company is known as Essential Products. According to the listing, the smartphone will feature a 5.5-inch display, with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1312 pixels. The display resolution is a bit odd at first, however, still, it produces an aspect ratio of 80:41 which is close the aspect ratio we have seen in LG and Samsung powerhouse smartphones.
Specs wise, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor will be used along with Adreno 540 GPU is in tow. Also, the device is coupled with 4GB of RAM with a 16GB of internal storage. The upcoming smartphone will sport a 12-megapixel on the rear camera and an 8-megapixel front snapper for selfies and both cameras are said to support 4K video recording. The smartphone is reported to run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat, but, the battery capacity wasn't mentioned in the report. On the connectivity area, the device supports NFC, GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.
