Part of the allure of the Essential Phone is its stunning design and the device’s modular 360-degree camera. While many praised the company for the phone’s almost non-existent bezels, others were disappointed the device’s camera performance.
However, Essential is now making promises that its next smartphone — probably the named the Essential PH-2 — will feature an improved camera set-up.
During an interview with Business Insider, Linda Jiangm Essential’s head of industrial design, stated the company listened to customer feedback regarding its first phone and plans to ‘do it better.’
“In general, one thing that we got hit hard with was the quality of our camera, and we’re really looking forward to improving that with our next-gen, making sure that we’re listening to our customers and their pain points… We can say, we heard you and we’re going to do it better on the second-gen for sure,” said Jiang.
Apart from the camera improvements, no other details were revealed as to if the second-generation device will follow the same design line of its first flagship.
A recent patent filing created by Andy Rubin, CEO of Essential and the ‘father of Android,’ revealed the company could be playing around with the idea of a pop-up camera, which would “maximize the display the display area of a mobile device.”
