What started as a guess
proved to be 100% accurate, as Essential announced it will not adding any new Essential Phone
inventory going forward. But that's not the only thing that Essential revealed to its fans, as the statement mentions plans to another mobile product.
An Essential spokesperson told The Verge
that while the Essential Phone
won't be sold through the company's store any longer, accessories will still be available for purchase for the time being. On top of that, the Essential Phone will continue to receive software updates in a timely manner.
We are sold out of Essential Phone on essential.com and won’t be adding any new inventory. We are now hard at work on our next mobile product and will continue to sell accessories and provide speedy software updates and customer support to our existing community.
However, the statement also refers to Essential's “next mobile product,” something that we didn't think it would be possible after reports about an Essential Phone 2 being shelved
. Even though the Essential Phone
is far from being perfect, we're quite excited to see what's the next chapter for the U.S. company.
