The company announced earlier this month that Sprint would be the exclusive carrier in the United States, TELUS in Canada. The phone is expected to start shipping sometime in August to the public.
Thanks to Jason Mackenzie (Head of sales at Essential), we now have our first look at the Essential smartphone's Screenshots. It's not just an ordinary image, the screenshot also reveals how big the Status Bar on the Essential Phone is. Additionally, the Screenshot also confirms that the Essential Phone will be coming with Pixel-like home button with small white outline.
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 Nougat.
