Phone from Android's original creator revealed: The Essential Phone - specs and pics Andy Rubin, the man who originally created the Android operating system, has been developing his own phone for some time now. The Verge finally got the final details and pictures of the product, called The Essential Phone.
The Essential Phone is everything you'd expect from a modern flagship Android phone: edge-to-edge display, minimalistic unibody design, massive storage, etc..

The exact specs that are known by now:
  • 4GB RAM
  • 128GB internal storage
  • bundled 360-degree camera that will connect to the top of the phone
  • Qualcomm 835 processor
  • 13Mpix dual-camera at the back where the other camera has Huawei-like monochrome sensor
  • 8Mpix front camera capable to capture 4K video


Only real nag with the specs is the fact that phone wont have 3.5mm audio jack, following the footsteps of Apple's iPhone.

Phone will be available at U.S. first, with the price tag of $699. Radio internals are supposed to be compatible with all U.S. operators. When exactly the phone will be available for sale isn't known yet.
