On the heels of several teasers, Andy Rubin’s startup Essential debuted its flagship bezel-less smartphone and smart speaker and they look impressive, to say the least. Further, the upcoming OnePlus 5 may be released even sooner than expected, and Joe and Pat rant about fidget spinners.
Leaked OnePlus 5 release date
Rumors for the OnePlus 5 are in full-force and have been for quite some time, and the latest of these suggests that the phone might be out sooner than we were initially anticipating. While prior reports indicated that the OnePlus 5 would launch in late June or July, new information indicates that the phone could be released as early as June 15.
The Essential Phone and Home look downright awesome
Andy Rubin, one of the initial co-founders of Android, took the wraps off of his brand new smartphone yesterday. It’s called the Essential Phone, and it looks to offer a premium design, gorgeous edge-to-edge display, modular accessories platform, and more for $700. Along with this, we also got our eyes on something called the Essential Home.
Essential Home looks like a smaller version of Amazon’s Echo Show, but there’s some cool tech packed inside here that could make it one of the best smart home accessories we’ve seen yet.
