The Bloomberg report also said that Essential had paused the development of a planned home speaker to start working on the upcoming handset.

Artificial intelligence is going to play a major role in Essential's new smartphone, according to a new report. So much so that Essential is building a phone that can have AI mimic the owner of the device to respond to text messages and emails.

The first prototype of this phone is expected by the end of this year, and Essential has plans of presenting the device to industry partners at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas by January.
