OSOM, a smartphone brand built by the brains behind Essential, will soon launch its first smartphone in the market. The device will be called the OSOM OV1, and its leaks have been all over the Internet. Now, the company took to Twitter to reveal its front panel and also confirm its unique privacy-centric Type-C cable.
As per the company’s tweet, the OSOM OV1 will support a different kind of USB Type-C cable. It won’t just be another charging cable, rather, it will have a toggle that will let users switch between two modes – a mode to pass data and a power-only mode.
It seems to basically offer what the software usually asks for when plugged into a computer. Instead of getting permission from the device, it appears to let users choose the USB options with this physical toggle.
Apart from the USB Type-C cable, the phone’s front design is also revealed. Although only the lower half of the portion is revealed, we get to see that it has a thin-bezel design featuring a modern aspect ratio. The device also appears to have some privacy-centric apps pre-installed. It comes loaded with the Brave browser, Signal, the camera app, and what looks like the company’s own Privacy app.
Other than this, the phone’s back panel and some specs have already been leaked. The OSOM OV1 will come with a stainless steel chassis, a Gorilla Glass Victus back panel, and a dual-camera system.
It will have a 48MP + 12MP dual-rear camera system. On the front, it will equip a 16MP snapper. The phone is said to have an OLED display, dual-SIM support, and 5G connectivity. As for the power, the device is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 flagship SoC.
