The startup Essential, founded by Android operating system developer Andy Rubin (pictured above), started creating a smartphone with artificial intelligence that will take over some of the routine tasks of the owner. It is reported by Bloomberg, citing its own sources.
According to available information, the new Essential smartphone will receive a small screen and will be sharpened under control through voice commands. In addition, due to the presence of built-in artificial intelligence, the device will be able to automatically reply to e-mail and text messages in messengers, imitating the style of the owner, as well as - to make appointments.
As for telephone calls, they will have to be answered in the old manner - independently. Also, if desired, you can personally respond to messages.
The prototype of the device will be presented before the end of the year, and the working version - at CES in January 2019. The interlocutor of Bloomberg noted that in Essential they intend to position the gadget as a device for those who want to spend less time in front of the smartphone screen, and as a useful addition to the main phone.
“My goal is to make the smartphone your virtual copy, which will allow you to enjoy life without touching the gadgets, and fully trust the device, allowing it to act on your behalf, for example, to reserve a table in a restaurant. I think in this way we will partially solve the problem of dependence on gadgets, ”Rubin said last year.
The representative of Essential declined to comment on the development of the device and specify its technical characteristics.
According to Bloomberg, the gadget could be the last hope for Essential in winning a highly competitive technology market, as sales of the previous PH-1 smartphone failed (the reason for this was too high a cost and software problems).
It is curious that earlier the startup officially announced that it will no longer produce smartphones and will concentrate on other consumer devices, for example, on some “home assistant”. However, according to Bloomberg, the company suspended work on all existing projects for the sake of a new smartphone.
