Android co-founder Andy Rubin might launch a new smartphone on May 30

By : |May 26, 2017 0

Android co-founder Andy Rubin could finally be ready with his new product- a nearly bezel-less smartphone that he teased earlier this March.

A tweet posted by the Twitter account for Essential, the name of Andy Rubin’s new company, confirmed on Thursday that “something big is coming May 30.”



Two months ago, Rubin offered a teaser glimpse of the phone, which has extremely minimal bezels and a display with curved corners — similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6. Alphabet chairman, Eric Schmidt later confirmed that the device runs Android software.

The announcement is likely to be made at the Code Conference, which kicks off on May 30 and which Andy Rubin will be attending. A previous Bloomberg report had suggested that Rubin’s Essential smartphone will include metal sides and a ceramic back.

That’s not all, a later tweet on Thursday also gave us peek into what is expected to be a 360-degree camera for the coming smartphone.


On tweaking the image a little, CNBC Technology Product Editor Todd Haselton found that the extension looks like a spherical lens of a camera on the smartphone.

Well, to say the least, it’s going to be tough, really tough to wait for another three days!
