Did you hear? We’re live! Check out to learn more about @Arubin’s new smartphone. #ThisIsEssential — Essential (@essential) May 30, 2017 Android... Andy Rubin the Creator of Android Launch Essential Phone

Android Creator Andy Rubin has launched a new known as Essential Phone.

The Phone made from titanium which is used to build rockets and replace bones. Unlike aluminum, which is what most phones are made of, titanium doesn’t scratch, dent, or bend. The Company has started taking orders but no shipment date announced yet. The Snapdragon 835 device will retail in the US for $699.

The Phone is launching with Android 7.1.1, the latest version, 2.45GHz Snapdragon 835 SoC with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 5.71-inch, 2560×1312 display with an 19:10 aspect ratio. The front camera is 8MP, while a dual 13MP sensor setup with laser autofocus is on the back. The battery is 3040mAh, a fast charging USB C port, and a modular connector. There’s a rear fingerprint reader, but no 35mm headphone jack or SD card slot. The Device has a slot for an attachable 360° camera. The magnetic connector with wireless data transfer keeps your phone cord-free, future-proof, and always up-to-date. The miniaturized 360 camera can captures the entire surroundings around the user.

You can quickly recharge the phone with a unique click cordless connector.
