Andy Rubin unveiled his new essential phone yesterday. The phone's design is stunning and includes all of the normal bells and whistles you would expect from a flagship phone. The phone is sold unlocked and can be yours for only $699. Yesterday you could register, but today you can actually pre-order the device. The device will begin to ship out in late June. It will ship with a new voice assistant meant to compete with Google Assistant and Samsung's Bixby. Essential phone comes packed with a 5.71" 19:10 aspect ratio display, Snapdragon 835 cpu, 4GB of RAM, 13MP camera, fingerprint sensor, 3,040mah battery, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Andy Rubin is known as the creator of Android so it is easy to assume his vision for a smartphone would be pretty awesome. Will any of you be picking up one of these phones?
