Essential Phone sequel to have a much better camera, company promises
The Essential Phone was a unique device until Apple launched the iPhone X, as many consider the first smartphone to have introduced the notch. Unfortunately, Essential's phone had one major problem: the camera.

The dual camera simply failed to deliver, while the camera app was a total disaster at launch. Even though the latter has been consistently improved since the smartphone's launch, people remain with the impression that the Essential Phone doesn't offer the same level of quality when it comes to the camera as any other flagship available on the market.

The good news is Essential has acknowledged the problem and promised the next smartphone it will launch will offer much better camera features. Linda Jiang, head of industrial design at Essential told BusinessInsider that the company is ready to deliver on that promise.

Now it remains to be seen when exactly the Essential Phone number two is going to be introduced. Based on the previous history, the handset should be unveiled during the summer, but that's hard to guess since Essential launch a single phone until now.
