The Essential is a Snapdragon 835 octa core powered smartphone introduced by Andy Rubin (co-founder and former CEO of Android Inc). Unique thing about the Essential Phone is the edge to edge display that almost covers the front panel and right up to the edge leaving space for the front camera.

Another unique thing about Essential Phone is modular support. For example you can connect a 360 degree camera that can simply be clipped on to the Essential and it stays in place thanks to the  magnetic connector Рeasy to attach / remove.

The handset will be available in 4 different color options – black, grey, white and ocean depths. As for the 360 camera when attached, users will be able to shoot 360 videos in 3840 x 1920 resolution at 30fps.
