Essential founder and Android co-founder Andy Rubin’s tweet have made everyone curious about the Essential’s next phone. Rubin’s shared the images and video of the new essential phone via his twitter handle. He called the smartphone “GEM Colorshift material” so we can assume that the phone will be named as an Essential Gem phone. However, there’s no news about the phone’s launch date and the design of the lastest Essential phone 2 is yet to be finalized.
Essential launched its first phone two years back and now it is ready to launch its second phone. Images and videos show that the phone is not designed like an ordinary smartphone. Essential’s next phone can be seen in a strange and unique look with tall ratio and narrow design. No further information has been given by the company about the upcoming phone. 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. It can be seen that there is a fingerprint sensor on the back and a hole – punch selfie camera on the front.
It is clear from the Official Twitter account of Essential which confirms the company’s new phone is in the testing phase, adding that: “We’ve been working on a new device to reframe your perspective on mobile. It’s now in early testing with our team outside the lab. Look forward to sharing more in the near future! ”

It might also run Android with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor. An Essential trademark application which suggests GEM as the final name for the new phone is also seen in the XDA Developer. Rather than the tweets of Rubin and essential official account, no further information is given about Essential’s next phone.
