Andy Rubin Finally Speaks Up On Essential Smartphone Delays

X

Android creator Andy Rubin has finally broken the silence surrounding the release of his new smartphone, the Essential PH-1.

Delivering a message to customers via Twitter, he assured them that the device will arrive within the next few weeks.

Announced in May, the Essential Smartphone features an edge-to-edge screen, a titanium-and-ceramic case and dual cameras.

At the time of its initial reveal, Android creator Andy Rubin promised that Essential’s first smartphone would be in the hands of customers within thirty days.

In the US, the phone is being carried by telco Sprint while an unlocked version is being sold through Essential directly.

Speaking to Business Insider, a Sprint spokesperson was unable to shed any light on the delays beyond confirming that the handset was due for release sometime in 2017.

Australian availability and/or pricing is still unknown at this time. However, a strong launch in the States would likely see the upstart brand quickly expand to international markets.
