ANDY RUBIN’S Essential: The Man Who Made ANDROID

Andy Rubin’s Essential why he started?

This is what he believe:

Devices are your personal property. We won’t force you to have anything on them you don’t want to have.

We will always play well with others. Closed ecosystems are divisive and outdated.

Premium materials and true craftsmanship shouldn’t be just for the few.

Devices shouldn’t become outdated every year. They should evolve with you.

Technology should assist you so that you can get on with enjoying your life.

Simple is always better.

The phone costs $699 and has a flagship like specifications such as QUALCOMM SNAPDRAGON 835 with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.At the back, the phone sports a magnetic connector to attach various accessories which would be magnetically attached to the prongs. The two prongs will also help to do wireless data transfer that keeps the phone cord-free, future-proof, and always up-to-date.

The phone has a full front 5.71-inch display with radiused corners with a 19:10 aspect ratio and a 2560 x 1312 QHD resolution. The back has 13 MP dual cameras with one RGB sensor and one Monochrome sensor and f/1.85 aperture lens. The front has an 8 MP camera and both cameras are capable of shooting 4k video at 30fps.

The phone also has a 3040mAh battery and supports fast charging using USB, but it does have a cordless dock that allows you to lay flat the phone. The phone has 4 color options, Black Moon, Stellar Grey, Pure White, Ocean Depths.
