    As for the smartphone, OV1 (Vault 1) will have dual rear cameras alongside a back-mounted fingerprint sensor and an unspecified Qualcomm chipset. The device will run a near-stock Android interface and we’ll get to learn more details about it at MWC in February. Jason Keats specified OV1 is not a sequal to the Essential PH-1 and that the phone will bring Google Mobile Services.

  • The people behind the Essential Phone are working on a new handset called Osom OV1, which isn’t exactly a comeback. AndroidPolice has published a report that describes the impending privacy-focused Android smartphone and includes a render of its back as well as some software, privacy, and other details. Jason Keats launched Osom Products, a company situated in Quebec, Canada, last year. Except for Andy Rubin, the core team is made up of folks that worked on the Essential PH-1. However, user privacy will be a major concern for Osom, as will having precise reporting on what information is being accessed by apps at all times. According to Keats, the device will be “100-fold more powerful” than competing Android devices at letting consumers know what information is being accessed at all times.

Per the report, the OV1 is still in its development stage and the render is based on the first working prototype so there are plenty of factors subject to change. The goal is to have the phone out on the market by Summer 2022.
