Essential phone teaser reveals dual camera and an attachable 360 degree camera module

Essential Phone

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would be aware of the fact that Andy Rubin, the co-founder of Android has been working on an Essential phone. In fact, he himself teased the smartphone a couple of months ago giving us a peak at slim bezels and curves of the phone.

What left us in awe, though, is a recent teaser image of the Essential smartphone which brought what seemed to be a 360-degree camera into the spotlight. And, today, a few hours before the official launch of the smartphone in the US, Essential’s Twitter handle has updated its cover photo thereby teasing the 360-degree camera module on the back.

As you can see from the above image, the 360-degree camera comes in addition to the dual camera setup on the back. We are still not sure how the 360-degree camera attaches to the smartphone (perhaps, it will be a Moto Mod-like external accessory which can be snapped on the back). But, we won’t have to wait long to find out as the device will be unveiled tonight.

The Essential Phone is rumored to feature high-end specifications such as a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, Adreno 540 GPU for graphics, 4GB of RAM, 12MP rear cameras, and a 7MP front camera to give tough completion to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6. Also, akin to these handsets, the smartphone could get a near bezel-less display.
