  • Essential wants to make a grand statement after the PH-1 smartphone failed to inspire

As a result, it would apparently have a smaller screen than most smartphones, since you won't need to directly interact with it as much, and numerous interactions that you do have would be voice-based.

The Bloomberg report also said that Essential had paused the development of a planned home speaker to start working on the upcoming handset.

Bloomberg claims the device will feature a small screen and require users to interact with it primarily using voice controls, while AI-powered software inside handles things such as booking appointments and responding to texts and emails automatically without additional input from the user. Now, its creator and inventor of Android is reportedly on a mission to destroy Android phones as we know them to eliminate our screen addition. A spokeswoman for Essential declined to comment. Although Essential is yet to confirm any of the aforementioned speculations, Rubin did drop a hint about such a device previous year in an interview with Bloomberg.

Essential may be working on a handset that doesn't follow the expected flagship expectations, as far as design goes. But the Essential Phone struggled to sell due to its relatively high price and software bugs.

If this new phone sounds intriguing we may not have long to wait, with Bloombergs source saying that the "company may show off the device to industry partners as soon as January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas".

In the a year ago, the company has been clouded by sexual harassment allegations involving Rubin's time at Google.
