Andy Rubin’s new Essential startup unveiled the Essential phone in late May and at launch we were told the phone will start shipping “within 30 days”.
Well the deadline has officially expired and the phone has yet to started shipping out to those who have pre-ordered it.
What’s more nerve-wracking is that the company is mum about the reasons behind the delay. So all we can do now is keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best. In case you don’t remember the Essential phone will be a Telus exclusive when it launches in Canada. In the US, the phone will only be sold by Sprint.
The phone should arrive with a 5.71-inch edge-to-edge display which hugs the front facing camera and a Snapdragon 835 processor underneath the hood. The product is poised to bundle 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
In the photography department, the Essential includes a dual camera system which pairs two 13-megapixel sensors – one of RGB variety and a monochrome one.
The Essential phone is also a modular affair in the vein of the Moto Z lineup. The first “mod” accessory will be a 4K 360-degree which latches on the back of the phone.
