Andy Rubin says "Essential PH-1" will start shipping "in a few weeks"
The Essential PH-1 could reach the buyers "in a few weeks", is what the founder of Essential has got to say. The smartphone could also become a revolutionary device, as the core philosophy of the company is to produce the kind of technology which evolves with the time. A unique feature that can be spotted in the smartphone is the magnetic connector at its backside. More could be said about the phone once it reaches the buyers.
In an update on their official Twitter, the founder Andy Rubin's statement is shared, where he clarifies that the "Essential PH-1" will be available "in a few weeks" time. This message is for the buyers who had pre-booked the phone and were eagerly waiting for it. In an earlier statement, Rubin had said that the phone would be ready for shipment in about thirty days from then. But the wait has exceeded the time frame set by him, hence comes clarity with the recent statement on how much more time would be taken for the final release.
The statement also read that the Essential PH-1 is undergoing some tests and certifications in the United States and alongside other international carriers. The features of the smartphone are as follows:
- Operating System: Android 7.1.1 Nougat
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC
- Battery: 3,040 mAh
- Display: 5.71-inch 2560 x 1312 QHD screen
- Storage & RAM: 128GB storage & 4GB RAM respectively
- Camera: 13-megapixels dual rear camera setup, 8-megapixels front camera
- Body: Ceramic Back and Titanium body
One invigorating feature of the phone accounts to be the magnetic connector pins at its rear side. These can connect additional accessories with the device, and one option the company provides is the 360-degree camera. You can add the camera to your cart with the phone and get a good discount on it. The cost of the Essential PH-1 is $699 (Approx. Rs.44,830), and along with the 360-degree camera, it amounts to $749 (Approx. Rs.48,040).
