Andy Rubin’s ‘Essential’ smartphone might have been leaked online via GFXBench.
Here is an image of the same.
According to the benchmark, the Essential smartphone will have an 18-inch display with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1312pixel. The screen will support at least 5 finger gesture support.
The Essential smartphone will run on Qualcomm octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor at speed of 2.2 GHz and have GPU 540. The memory of the device would be 3.6GB while the storage would be 10GB. It will have 4GB RAM for multitasking.
Essential Smartphone will run on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
The device will sport a 12MP rear camera that will shoot images at 4160 x 3120pixel and record 4K videos at 3840 x 2160pixel. The camera will have LED Flash. The front 7MP shooter will shoot images at 3840x 2160pixel and it can also record 4K videos with the exact same resolution as rear camera.
The Essential smartphone will have a bunch of sensors. They are – accelerometer, barometer, compass, GPS, light sensor, gyroscope, pedometer, proximity and thermometer.
The image points towards 0 SIM cards, which means the device will rely on Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity.
This benchmark result was spotted on a Russian website MobileTelefon.ru. The site has also indicated that the device would be produced by Foxconn International Holdings.
According to 9to5Google, the phone will have modular functionality and also sport Apple’s 3D Touch. There is also a rumor on the price being $649 which is ~Rs.41,900. The device is expected to go on SALE sometime in the middle of the year.
Don’t you think there’s something wrong with the device?
First of all, an 18-inch device is very big. Secondly, the storage is outright low. So I’m not going believe these specs blindly. I would advise you the same.
Note: This benchmark was made last year in December. This was the same time when the Geekbench test was done. We are just joining the dots now. However, you must take the news with a pinch of salt.
