In January of this year, a report surfaced that outlined Andy Rubin's next plans for the smartphone market and how artificial intelligence would play a role in his next big vision beyond just the Android platform. We say this as Essential has made its very first announcement via Twitter, tipping that the smartphone's launch is not far-fetched.

Today Essential has tweeted for the first time, and as you can see it's promising "something big" for May 30. He's the father of Android, after all, which is why all eyes are going to be on him and his new company Essential on May 30. There is a cutout on top for a speaker, while at the side there is a visible button.

It is also rumoured that the phone will have neither a USB-Type C charger or a Lightning connector. Furthermore, the iPhone 8 is expected to have an edgeless display as well, so Essential had better have more tricks up its sleeve. The smartphone runs on latest Android 7.0 Nougat, however, there is no mention of the battery capacity. As per the listing, the smartphone will come with a 5.5-inch display, with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1312 pixels. On the connectivity front, the device support, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
