All who are in any way associated with Essential Phone, including mobile operators, has announced its readiness to put this smartphone bundled with subscription contracts, keep the deathly silence, and no one except Andy Rubin, does not know what happens with Essential Phone really.
Andy Rubin is working with telecommunications companies around the world to launch the Essential Phone in the United Kingdom, other Western European countries, as well as Japan.
Meanwhile, after Essential missed its initial shipping window a few weeks, ago, Niccolo de Masi, chief operating officer of the company, stated that the phone's release in the USA is "imminent".
The Financial Times claims that Andy Rubin is already working with telecommunications companies around the world to launch the Essential Phone in the United Kingdom, other Western European countries, as well as Japan. It's unclear which regions specifically will get this bezel-less ceramic device, but if the report is true, its United Kingdom launch date might not be too far away.
The Essential Phone looks promising: it offers pure Android experience (after all, it's Andy Rubin we're talking about), a mesmerizing design thanks to the ceramic body and titanium frame, as well as impressive specs, including its modular back. Unfortunately, there is still no specific date provided that buyers can hold on to.
The Essential Phone may have missed its soft June launch timeframe, but the company's COO says we should prepare for imminent arrival in the USA, according to Financial Times.
Now the only confirmed peripheral is a 360-degree camera which attaches to the phone via a magnetic pin connector it calls "Click", which cleverly transmits data to attachments over a wireless connection. Interestingly, the Essential has already started work on their second smartphone, as yet unnamed, but probably he will be brought to logical conclusion in view of the outbreak of reshuffles at the top that usually entails downsizing.
