Andy Rubin’s Essential Smartphone’s Specs Just Leaked in a New Benchmark

A fresh benchmark that has appeared on GFXBench gives us some insight into what we can expect to see in Andy Rubin’s upcoming bezel-less smartphone powered by Android and under his newly formed company, Essential.In the benchmark, we find the name ‘Essential FIH-PM1’ which gives us confirmation this is, indeed, the upcoming Essential. We also find many typical 2017 flagship

In the benchmark, we find the name ‘Essential FIH-PM1’ which gives us confirmation this is, indeed, the upcoming Essential. We also find many typical 2017 flagship features such as a Snapdragon 835 processor (or at least we think so), 4GB of RAM, an Adreno 540 GPU, a 12MP rear camera and 7MP front camera (each with 4K video recording), and Android 7.0 Nougat.

Display wise, the leaked benchmark indicates a resolution of 2560×1312 with a weird 80:41 aspect ratio. This boils down to being just a tad bigger than an 18:9 aspect ratio we’re currently seeing on phones like the Galaxy S8 and LG G6, so it’s likely that this is just an over-explained calculation rather an official feature. Recent murmurings suggest we’ll see a 5.5-inch display on the Essential phone, so expect an ultimate screen size somewhere around that measurement. It may also feature 3D Touch-like pressure sensitivity for better software navigation. This is kind of far-fetched, but it could happen.

All in all, it looks like Rubin’s upcoming smartphone will be built to compete with leading competitors like Samsung, LG, and Moto. The only question is, when is it coming?
