Essential Phone 2, a phone that looked like we would never see and that appears in the testing phase

Essential has always been a strange company. Born from the hand of Andy Rubin, the original creator of Android that would later go to Google, the company put into circulation the Essential Phone 1. A powerful phone whose greatest virtue lay in the updates section. Faster than the Google Pixel, they said, and it was something that was accomplished until the company began to show signs of fatigue.

The Essential Phone 1 was not a mobile or cheap or with a massive distribution, so the company began to lack revenue. That joined the personal problems of Andy Rubin himself, so the possible Essential Phone 2 was in the limbo of the phones that we expected to see but that never seemed to be launched. At least so far, well have hunted an Essential phone in tests from XDA Developers.

  

We go down a step to the premium mid-range

With the original Essential Phone, also known as Essential Phone 1 or Essential PH-1, we had a whole high range in our hands. A mobile with the Snapdragon 835, the chip that reigned in the Android world in 2017, and with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Two cameras crowned the back and 3,040 mAh powered the phone that promised to revolutionize everything in terms of updates.

With the new device that has already been sighted in tests, it seems that Essential wants to turn its policy around. After a high range, the Americans would prepare a mobile phone with the Snapdragon 730, one of the latest Qualcomm chips in its "premium" midline, and more focused on the public gamer with its 730G version, although here it seems that we have the first.

The new device reduces the Snapdragon 800 processor to 700

The phone would be running the Android version July 10, so we assume that it will end up arriving directly with the Android 10 definitive that Google released a few weeks ago. But there is nothing more about this future Essential phone on the table, beyond these two features.

The first conversations around the phone already talk about a somewhat smaller screen than the original, which was 5.71 inches with QHD + resolution, and with an interface very focused on voice and gestures on the same panel. So, for now, we just have to wait to learn more about this essential Phone 2 assumption that we should not have more information to take in our mouths.
