Time after time, information continues to allude to the potential release of a second-generation Essential Phone. While nothing is certain, we could be set to get a PH-2, and a patent filed by Essential points towards an in-display selfie camera on the device.

Andy Rubin’s Essential entered the smartphone market with the PH-1 back in 2017. The PH-1 was something of a flop, sales-wise, which ensured that the company didn’t follow it up with a PH-2 last year. While most have given up hope of ever getting a successor to the PH-1, new reports are making it look increasingly possible that Essential could be set to deliver yet another attempt at a flagship phone.

According to the source, Essential filed a patent for an-display selfie camera back in 2017 and that is a technology that could be seen on the PH-2. “Could” being the key word here, as it’s also possible nothing ever comes from it. This will not be the first time an in-display selfie camera has been mentioned in conjunction with the PH-2. A few weeks ago, purported schematics of the device leaked, showing it with an in-display selfie camera.

That said, a patent is just that: a patent; and most never materialize into something concrete. It would be nice to get an Essential PH-2, though, and one featuring innovative technology like an in-display selfie camera would be even more welcome.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
