We all know the much-hyped Essential phone has taken the internet by storm when it has been unveiled by Android founder Andy Rubin a couple of years ago. Despite not being a successful product, it is still considered as a progressive design shift in the world of smartphones that led a path to today’s notch phones. That being said, the Essential phone’s successor is long and overdue, and here some initial information reported about its successor – the Essential Phone PH 2.
The successor is expected to have the front-facing camera sensor hidden behind the display and also the fingerprint sensor under the display. The patent sketches acquired by Slashgear suggests that the Essential PH 2 will most likely feature a full body display, which might be an OLED or an LCD panel. The interesting selfie camera under the screen is said to become semitransparent, whenever required. This appears to be different from the punch hole displays (preferably LED displays), which are set to launch this year, starting from the upcoming Galaxy S10 smartphones. (Honor View 20 has been released with punch hole LCD display).
Furthermore, the report sketches reveal a fingerprint sensor under the display as well. The sketch showcases fingerprint sensor composition under the display, which precisely sits in the bottom center of the display – right under the home button navigation key. The in display fingerprint sensor is the prevailing standard and what appears to be the Essential PH 2 would also be emphasizing similar kind of fingerprint scanner as well.
If these sketches are believed to be true, then we can anticipate the successor of the much awaited Essential phone – the PH 2 would also be a radical new design approach to the future smartphones line-up. Stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more interesting updates.
