This is the new, weird-looking, Essential Phone

After revealing that a new product is in the pipeline previous year, Essential founder Andy Rubin has shared the first look of the company's next phone via a short video and a few live images.

Essential's founder Andy Rubin has tweeted a few photos and videos showing off the upcoming Essential smartphone. Essential Products looks to be working on one that will definitely shake things up where looks are concerned. The smartphone could be launched as Essential Gem if we go by the hashtag used in the tweet. Rumors of an Essential Phone 2 circulated for a bit, but nothing was ever released from this company founded by Andy Rubin. Called ColorShift, the rear panel changes colors when you look at it from different angles.

This time, however, it appears that Essential has taken inspiration from Samsung, with the GEM prototype sporting a pinhole camera cutout in the top left-hand corner of the device.

No More iTunes On macOS: Apple discontinues music-subscription service
Apple also offers Apple News Plus for $10 per month, and Apple Arcade , a subscription video game service, for $5 per month. Now, Apple isn't required to pressure these record labels to lower the price of each song for the rumored super bundle.

Rubin also highlighted the new UI for Gem's "radically different" form factor. It is likely this Project GEM device is running a version of Android and looking at the display, we see it connected to AT&T with LTE, Spotify, Phone, Maps (not a Google Maps icon though), Camera, Messages, and Gallery. Essential's upcoming phone is shown to have a very tall aspect ratio and a single rear camera housed in a large circular module. Additionally, the phone is rumored to be controlled mainly through voice commands, with an AI assistant performing numerous tasks.

The company has confirmed that the Essential phone is now under testing, which means we shouldn't be expecting a launch anytime soon. It might also run Android with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor.
