It sounds like an ambitious plan and given the limitations of consumer AI so far we can't help but be skeptical that Essential will pull it off, but if it does then this could be a phone that lives up to the company's name.
Bloombergreports that Essential is focusing on AI for whatever smartphone is coming next.
"The design of the new mobile device isn't like a standard smartphone", reads the report. The phone will have AI built-in to automatically get real-world tasks done for the user, including things like replying to text, booking appointments, responding to emails, etc. It reportedly has a small screen, but will mainly be operated through voice commands. You'll also be able to use it to make calls, says Bloomberg.
In the past year, the company has been clouded by sexual harassment allegations involving Rubin's time at Google. Although Essential is yet to confirm any of the aforementioned speculations, Rubin did drop a hint about such a device a year ago in an interview with Bloomberg.

By the time Essential made a decision to put the home-speaker project on hold, it had already lost key engineers working on the project amid disagreements over the prospects for launching such an ambitious device.

Essential has a lot to worry about here if it does end up eventually releasing the product.
Essential could show a prototype off as early as January at CES.
