We've asp got what looks like an exceptionally slim bezel and a pretty floral wallpaper, although the latter is neither here nor there.

Rubin worked at Google until 2013, and he was in charge of the OS. Beyond that, we can see that the phone will feature a cutout on top for a speaker, along with a visible button on the side of the device.

Attached to the image is the phrase "I'm really excited about how this is shaping up".

It's official: Andy Rubin is working on a new smartphone.

The picture (above and below) doesn't reveal a lot, other than a time, battery meter, and LTE signal that sure looks to be of an Android font.

According to an earlier report by Bloomberg, the device is said to come with a screen larger than the iPhone 7 Plus's (5.5-inches) but will have a smaller overall footprint because of the lack of bezels. We've also heard that the phone will sport premium materials (maybe a ceramic back) and could have some sort of modular aspect too.

Andy Rubin, best known as the creator of Android, has today shown off a fragment of a phone he's reportedly developing, teasing we'll see the new device go on sale before long. Rubin left the search giant a year later, and recently created a new company called Essential Products.
