Important simply teased a ‘radically completely different’ extra-long telephone


What on this planet has Andy Rubin been as much as?

After launching the Important Telephone – a surprising gadget that was stricken by poor software program however has improved considerably over time – Android’s creator has been fairly quiet. The telephone’s unique successor was nixed, however now we’ve the primary affirmation the corporate does certainly have one other product on the best way, dubbed Undertaking GEM.

First Andy Rubin tweeted some mysterious no-context pictures at this time – his first non-reply tweet since responding to a New York Occasions report about alleged sexual misconduct. Within the new tweets he exhibits off new gadgets with what appears to be the longest side ratio we’ve seen on a smartphone but, in addition to a novel new UI:

On the time, it wasn’t clear whether or not it was really an Important Telephone or some new challenge altogether, however then the corporate despatched out a extra official tweet:

And that’s all we all know. Although neither Rubin nor Important really particularly say the phrase ‘telephone’ – they only consult with it as some new form of cellular gadget – there is a telephone icon on the house display screen within the Important tweet.

Much less clear is whether or not the gadget really even runs Android. It’s onerous to think about Rubin shying away from the OS he helped create – particularly after the Important Telephone made an enormous deal out of delivering a ‘pure’ Android expertise, however the brand new UI is unquestionably completely different from something we’ve seen. Maybe a brand new pores and skin was essential to accommodate the unusual form. A minimum of we all know it runs Spotify, I assume.

It’s a bizarre design, however what? I form of dig it. Telephones all look the identical these days, and between this and the Floor Duo, it’s good to see new kind components emerge. It’s clearly not essentially the most very best form for viewing pictures or video, but it surely might make for good multi-tasking for working two apps facet by facet (if it may even try this). I’m certain Important has some reasoning for the form.

We’ve reached out to Important and can allow you to konw if we discover out extra.
