The head of Essential posted several photos of the prototype of the new smartphone.
It is possible that the next Essential Phone will be made in this unusual form factor. It will be long and very narrow (hi Sony).
Corresponding software has been developed for a smartphone with this aspect ratio. As you can see, it consists of cards. At the top of the device you can see the front camera. The main camera module protrudes quite significantly from the body. There is a recess under it, most likely there is a fingerprint scanner.
Photos of the smartphone were also posted on the official Essential twitter with the hashtag #ProjectGem. It is reported that he is still at an early stage of testing, but the company is working to change users' views on smartphones.
How do you like this form factor?
