Essential Phone PH-1
The Essential Phone is the first phone by the namesake company, conceived by Andy Rubin, the person who created Android and showing his idea of what the Android phone of the future should look like. And it’s a daring new device: it’s a true bezel-less phone with a full-screen display that takes even more of the front than the Galaxy S8, and it’s a modular phone at its core. Plus, it’s an all-out flagship phone that is launching first in the United States. It’s got all flagship bells and whistles: the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system chip with 4 gigs of RAM, and a whopping 128GB of on-board storage.
Samsung Galaxy S8
Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S8 on March 29, 2017. As the brand’s new flagship, the smartphone will surely pack a variety of exciting features, including an iris scanner for user recognition, a smart AI assistant, and a flashy new design to top it all off. No less importantly, the upgraded hardware will make the device faster than its predecessor, with a fast and efficient Snapdragon 835 in charge. Numerous leaks suggest that the Galaxy S8 will stick to the metal-and-glass design principle of its predecessors, paired with IP-certified resistance against the elements.
