It’s been over two years since Andy Rubin, one of the founders of Android, unveiled the first generation of his own smartphone brand, called Essential Phone, or Essential PH-1.
Today, almost six months after it has been discontinued, we see indications that its successor, Essential Phone 2, may be close to being announced. A recent tweet from Andy himself hints.
Some patents of the brand already gave indications that its successor is already on the way, and many users ask for a new device. Through a topic on Twitter, Rubin revealed in response to a user that the company plans to “make an announcement”, at the same time that the public should “stand firm”.
Unfortunately, no other information was provided, but because the conversation started after a user asked about a new smartphone, this could be a sign of the launch of Essential Phone 2. Check out the tweet below:
Thanks. We’ll make an announcement. Hang tight.

The Essential Phone 1 was the first Android phone to came with a waterdrop notch, and now new information reveals that the Essential Phone 2 might offer a great use of the screen and without a notch. So we might see something new and exciting.
Currently, it is not clear what Essential is planning, but it would certainly be interesting to see a brand new smartphone. Stay tuned for more.
