It's no secret that smartphones have been rising in height in recent years, with screens breaking into 16 aspect ratio: 9, which used to dominate an attempt to increase the user's available display space without compromising the basic ergonomics of device grip - and there are manufacturers such as Who've already taken this fashion to an end with the use of 21 screens: 9 high (or long, if you prefer) unusually. Think it's over here? Essential American companies think this is just the beginning.

The young company that launched its Essential Phone model in 2017 with a vision to serve as a kind of spiritual successor to the Google Nexus family and its partners, with great success, broke a recent silence with Twitter's exposure to extremely long smartphone prototypes that they could Display much more visual information to the user at any given moment (given the software that is tailored to it of course) with minimal impact on apparent ease of use - But not everyone in the network is enthusiastic about the idea, Partly because it was shown in the personal account of one of the founders, Andy Rubin.

The new concept, dubbed the temporary GEM, has caused a stir in the network - but not only because of the extreme design

Andy Rubin was considered the original Android system creator somewhere in the beginning of the last decade, and for years served as the manager of the platform within Google itself - until he left to embark on his new venture with the current company.

Will the extreme reactions in some places on the network cause Andy Rubin (pictured) to reduce, or completely eliminate, his personal involvement with Essential? In the meantime, there is no evidence of this

Is it worth separating the actions of one person into the products of an entire company that employs hundreds of other unrelated employees, or cannot such a problematic transition be overlooked for one of the main characters? Feel free to tell us your point of view in the comments - but in any case, you can't argue with the assertion that Essential manages to generate significant reverberations online, surprisingly for a company founded four years ago and launched to date Only one.

In the past we received And parody videos about future smart devices that will be ridiculously long - and now it suddenly feels like a pretty accurate forecast for the future of the market, at least in the eyes of some manufacturers
