Android creator Andy Rubin’s Essential announced its first phone, the Essential PH-1, back in May 2017. The smartphone came with nice specs but failed to bring in enough money to keep the company afloat. But it seems its successor, the Essential PH-2, will be an interesting phone that may do better than the PH-1.
According to the latest report, the Essential PH-2 will come with a selfie camera that will be placed behind the display. That would enable the to PH-2 have an all-screen front fascia devoid of a notch.
The camera behind the display will be accompanied by a light sensor, and the display will become translucent when you activate the front camera. It’s currently unclear whether Essential will go with an OLED panel or an LCD one on the PH-2.
A sketch from Essential has also surfaced online which shows a phone with a camera in the display as well as a fingerprint sensor placed under the display. Fingers crossed that they can pull it off
