5.7″ display toting Essential Phone has body size less than that of 5″ Pixel

Andy Rubin has taken the wrappings off his Essential Phone, and boy, does it look sweet! The whole device looks fantastic with smooth corners and a sharp look, but what caught our attention most, was the dimensions of the device. The Essential Phone, which features a 5.7-inch bezel-less display, has a smaller form factor than the 5-inch Google Pixel!

Yup, you read it right, Sir!

Let’s have some math done. Because we’re so good at it — just kidding, actually, it’s simple math. The Essential Phone’s dimensions are 141.5mm x 71.1mm x 7.8mm leading to a total of 78473 cubic mm. When compared to the Google Pixel, whose dimensions are 143.8mm x 69.5mm x 8.5mm, this gives you a volume of 84950 cubic mm.

Not only is the Essential Phone thinner, but it also has more screen real estate. Now, this is how Essential proves its name’s worth, literally!

As for the specifications in this beauty, there’s nothing but the best of the best inside. The Essential Phone is powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor, with 4GB of RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 based storage.

Also on board is the gorgeous 5.7-inch display with a 2560 x 1312 pixels resolution. On the back is the dual 13MP camera with a two pin connector for modular accessories which, right now, is limited to a 360 degree camera.

The level of engineering in this device just goes on to prove how much detail and care has gone into shaving off every unwanted millimeter to achieve this feat of art. At the same time it leaves us thinking why HTC — or Sony — couldn’t put in the same amount of effort when they think about their next flagships.
