Two months after teasing a mysterious new handset, high-profile startup Essential could just be days away from unveiling its debut phone.
Founded by Android co-founder Andy Rubin, Essential has let loose its first tweet on its official Twitter page, announcing that “something big” is expected to go down this coming Tuesday, May 30.
Rubin was originally reported back in January to be designing a new, high-end smartphone that featured a ceramic back, edge-to-edge display, and the ability to tack on new hardware via the handset’s charge port — not unlike Motorola’s clip-on Moto Mod upgrades.
Since then, Rubin teased an image of what appears to be a bezel-less handset while Alphabet executive chairman Eric Schmidt confirmed that the phone Rubin is cooking up runs on Android.
This gives us at least two possible details about the mysterious Essential Phone, though we look to learning more hard deets when Essential drops its “big” news next week.
