Andy Rubin teases wild new smartphone design on Twitter

Andy Rubin on Tuesday teased… something. The Android co-founder Tweeted images of a wild new smartphone concept that looks ready for your pocket. Is it the Essential Phone 2? Is it something completely different? We don’t really know. All we know now is that it looks weird.

Rubin called the device a “radically different form factor” with an all new UI that fits inside the elongated design. No specs are revealed, but the display looks like it’s only about an inch and half wide, maybe two inches. That’s unlike anything else on the market right now.

As a result of the different form factor, Rubin revealed a first look at the device’s “new UI,” which appears to feature card-like apps.

Rubin is no stranger to introducing radical form factors. He co-created T-Mobile’s legendary Sidekick and then went on to create the Essential Phone, which feature a cyclops notch. This new device, which doesn’t yet have a name, is his most radical yet.
