Pick up the Essential Phone from Amazon for only $399.99
Powering the Essential Phone is the Snapdragon 835 chipset, carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. There is 4GB of RAM inside along with 128GB of internal storage. The dual camera setup on back includes one 13MP RGB camera, and a second 13MP monochrome camera. In front, an 8MP snapper handles selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3040mAh battery, and Android 8.1 is pre-installed.
The sale price is available for the Black Moon and Pure White models. If you want to add the plug-in 360 degree camera, the price rises to $467.88. With the Essential HD earphones, the bundle will set you back $496.87.
Essential is believed to be working on a sequel, which is expected to improve on the oft-criticized cameras on the first-generation device, and add an IP certification rating.
