Android co-founder Andy Rubin teases his new device from Essential

Andy Rubin revealed in January that he would be launching a new startup called Essential. The firm will focus on creating smartphones, and other consumer hardware. Today, Rubin has released a teaser image of his upcoming device which looks to offer, at a minimum, an impressive display.

If you're unfamiliar with Rubin, he is the co-founder of Danger, which created the Hiptop, better known as T-Mobile's Sidekick, and is also one of the co-founders of Android. After nine years with Google, Rubin left to focus on new projects.

From the image above, we can see that the new device will offer a bezel-less design. While only a section can be seen, it looks familiar. Late last year, Xiaomi stunned the world with its Mi MIX handset that not only offered a bezel-less design, but also included technologies like a piezoelectric speaker, and ultrasonic emitter.

Although it's a shame that there aren't more details about the device, it is still exciting to see something new that will eventually be formally introduced to the world.
