The Essential Phone will finally start shipping in the coming weeks
Andy Rubin himself sent out an update today, informing the world that customers who've registered to buy the Essential Phone should have the smartphone in their hands "in a few weeks."
Priced at $699 unlocked, the Essential Phone is obviously not on the cheap side. Still, its features pretty much justify this price, as what we're having here is a handset capable of standing next to any other high-end phone currently on the market.
With its 5.7-inch, 1312 x 2560 pixels display that has almost no bezels around, the Essential Phone certainly stands out. Its 8 MP front-facing camera also stands out, as it's protruding into screen territory, but at least Essential found an extra use for that bulge, including an LED notification light next to the camera.
In addition to being offered unlocked (compatible with all US carriers), the Essential Phone is going to be sold via Sprint, although there's no word on exactly when this will happen.
Have you reserved an Essential Phone, or do you plan to purchase one anytime soon? Let us know in the comments below!
