Essential sold out only 5,000 phones since launch
A new report shows that Essential managed to sell nearly 5,000 PH-1 units since launch. To recall, Andy Rubin announced the Essential PH-1 phone back in May with top-notch specs and mouth-watering design.

The entire package is offered at a price of just $699, way less than the Samsung Galaxy S8 and is available only through Sprint. Essential also plans to launch its Essential Home smart-home hub later this year.


The Essential smartphone features a 5.7-inch QHD edge-to-edge display, not the one seen on Galaxy S8. It is powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. The phone comes with ceramic back and includes USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC. The phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

The attraction for the phone is at the back where the magnetic connectors lie. With the help of these magnetic pins, you can connect additional devices. For now, there's a 360-degree camera that has two 12MP lenses. At the back, there are two cameras of 13MP along with an 8MP front-facing camera. The so-called modular 360-degree camera costs $199.
