Essential Phone to be a Sprint exclusive in the US
Of course, the unlocked Essential Phone, compatible with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, will still be available online through the official website of the company. This is exactly how HTC sells its HTC U11 flagship, by the way.
Sprint hasn’t yet announced availability details for its Essential Phone release, but the shipments are expected to start in the late summer. No word is said on pricing either. As you may already know, the unlocked version of the handset is offered for $699 on the official Essential website where you may also buy a 360-degree camera accessory for $50 extra. For now, we still don't know whether the Essential Phone is to be shipped outside the US.
