Essential is trying to keep the attention on its first smartphone, the Essential Phone, and offering new colors and variants is one way to go about that.
If you are a fan of limited edition smartphones, and happen to be a fan of the Essential brand and the Essential Phone, then the company has something worth considering.
Essential founder and CEO Andy Rubin will be taking a leave from the company for a few weeks for “personal reasons.” The move comes after a report from The Information revealed a relationship that Rubin had at Google with a woman working under him in the Android division.
When the Essential Phone first launched, it carried a hefty $699 price tag. While the design and build quality of the phone set it apart from others in the market, the $699 price tag was still too tough to digest for a phone from a new company.
Essential today released the first beta build of Android 8.0 Oreo for the Essential Phone. The Essential Phone runs on a stock build of Android and the Oreo experience on the device is not going to be any different.
Essential has announced that it will offer a free unit of the Essential Phone to customers who were recently part of an internal company deficiency, resulting in 70 users having their private data shared with a handful of other customers.
The Essential Phone, a brand new smartphone with an edge-to-edge display design from the Essential company, has been a long time coming.
After a couple of months of delay, Andy Rubin’s Essential confirmed that it would start shipping the Essential Phone to customers who pre-ordered it from later this week. Now, with the phone also hitting Sprint stores, the first batch of Essential Phone reviews are also out.
After months of delay, Andy Rubin’s Essential has finally provided customers who pre-ordered the handset with a confirmed shipped date. The email from Essential says that their pre-ordered Essential Phone is ready and will be shipped out to them within 7 days.
It is going to be almost three months since Andy Rubin unveiled the Essential Phone. While the phone was supposed to go on sale after a month of its unveiling, the promised time frame came and went by with no word from the company.
