Andy Rubin tweets photos of shapely new Essential phone

Besides the look and feel of such an unorthodox form-factor, it's also worth noting that a new UI such as the one previewed on the Essential Phone could take awhile when it comes to app integration.

Essential, led by Android co-founder Andy Rubin, on Wednesday showcased prototypes of what could be the next design standard for phones. The smartphone got in the news primarily for its tiny notch design, which was new for the time.

Essential had filed for a patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to trademark the "GEM" name, and so, we believe that the new phone from the company will be called as the Essential GEM.

As one can see in the pictures, the phone has a bump on the back which appears to be the camera.

We've seen phones of many shapes and sizes over the years, but it looks like Essential's next device could go in yet another direction.

Essential didn't provide any details or specifications on this Project GEM device, but posted two images on Twitter. With the successor, it seems Essential has turned to the newer pinhole-style of cutout. Rather than the tweets of Rubin and essential official account, no further information is given about Essential's next phone. We also see a volume rocker and power button on the right side, while the rear shows what looks like a fingerprint sensor and a large, single camera.

Essential has revealed earlier that it is working on an AI-powered phone that will have a small screen and will be controlled primarily using voice commands.

While the Essential CEO didn't say when it might be released or mentioned any features, he did write "New UI for radically different formfactor" in his tweet. It might also run Android with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor.
