[Official] Andy Rubin’s Essential PH-1 Phone Specs

Andy Rubin, the co-founder of Android, today released his latest smartphone under his new company Essential, with the phone being called the Essential Phone or PH-1. Unlike other smartphones in the market, the Essential Phone is a bold and modular smartphone in many ways. 

The PH-1 is fully stocked with the highest end specs you can find from what we can tell. You have an edge-to-edge front display that weighs in at 5.71-inches and with a QHD resolution. You get a Snapdragon 835 processor powering it all, 128GB UFS 2.1 storage, 4GB RAM, 13MP dual camera setup, magnetic connector to make the phone somewhat modular, and a premium body made of titanium and ceramic. And yes, it runs Android.

The phone will cost $699 and comes in white or black at this time. Additional colors will arrive soon.
