Andy Rubin's Essential Phone Now Costs $499

Andy Rubin's Essential Phone Now Costs $499

Essential has an offer that's honestly very hard to refuse: The price of the Essential Phone (PH-1, going by technical model number), is now $200 cheaper, so $499 off-contract and unlocked. The smartphone was supposed to ship to its customers at the end of June when there were not many major flagships. Apple, Samsung and many other brands follow the strategy while launching a new device.

There is no confirmation on why the company is now selling the Essential Phone with such a huge price cut. Amazon seems to be offering worldwide shipping for the Essential Phone.




Customers who purchased the device at the original price will receive a $200 voucher for use on the Essential website. It is now offered in Black Moon and Pure White colours, however the company is working to release more colour variants. Another reason why it may not be selling is that it is only available through Sprint in the U.S. However, the company will launch a similar promo in Canada as well, although details aren't yet available.

Essential Phone features a bezel-less screen of 5.71 inches that produces an unusual aspect ratio of 19:10. It has a native storage of 128 GB. It has a f/2.2 aperture 8-megapixel selfie camera. That's especially true knowing that Essential has improved its camera software since we first reviewed the handset in the summer, even if it's not about to make a Pixel 2 owner nervous. Moreover, the smartphone is built with a sumptuous combination of titanium and ceramic allowing it to take a few hits when dropped. The code can be used to reduce the price of a new Essential Phone purchase, which means if you have one of these codes the price of the phone will go down to $299.
