Many of you might have heard by now that the co-founder of Android Andy Rubin is heading his own company now after he left Google and he has been working on a mystery smartphone project. His company is called Essential and it’s believed to be working on a new smartphone, at least Rubin teased that much himself, but he hasn’t revealed much about the handset so far. Apparently, the Essential smartphone specifications have appeared online courtesy of a benchmark result.

The benchmark result reveals that the Essential smartphone specifications might include Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM. It may also feature a 12 megapixel rear and 7 megapixel rear camera.

It merits mentioning here that not all information mentioned in a benchmark listing has the potential to be true. That’s why take it with a grain of salt when you see that the listing mentions this smartphone having an 18 inch display with a unique 2560 x 1312 pixel resolution.

With what we know about this handset so far, it appears to be a proper flagship-level smartphone that could very well take on the likes of the LG G6 and the Galaxy S8. It has previously be confirmed that the Essential smartphone will be running Android but whether it will be a heavily customized version of Android remains to be seen.

It’s unclear right now when Rubin’s company plans on unveiling its first smartphone, it could happen over the next few months.
