Andy Rubin is the man responsible for Android OS. More than a decade ago, he sold his mobile operating system to mother Google, and now we’re on version seven-dot-O. Rubin, however, has not been involved with the OS’ development for years and has been out of the mobile phone game for quite awhile now.
On Monday, he posted a very vague tweet, showing a hand holding a bezel-less smartphone. It’s a little peek at his new company Essential, which, obviously is in the market of manufacturing smartphones. In his vague tease, he says that he is “eager to get it in more people’s hands.”
I'm really excited about how this is shaping up. Eager to get it in more people's hands… pic.twitter.com/LRzQCFSKTm

The new Essential phone is described as a “high-end smartphone with a large edge-to-edge screen that lacks a surrounding bezel.” From the looks of the photo, the bezel-less concept has been followed through, making it a potentially strong competitor to Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Pixel, and Samsung’s Galaxy S8.
If Rubin hits another home run, we might be looking at a new revolutionary smart-product.
