The Essential Phone is likely to launch in the US soon
After being announced back in May, the Essential Phone has seemingly fallen off everyone’s radar. This is likely due to the hubbub surrounding the recent announcement of the OnePlus 5. However, a recent FCC filing has again piqued our interest regarding Andy Rubin’s latest venture.
Much of the information revealed in the FCC filing confirms what we already knew, including the fact that the Essential Phone will be compatible with all four major US carriers. Unfortunately, it seems that we are still left without knowing a concrete date for when the Essential Phone will launch, but considering the fact that it’s passing through the FCC, must mean we are getting closer.
Essential Phone Specs:
- 5.7-inch 2560 x 1312 Display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC
- 4GB RAM
- 128GB Storage
- 8MP Front Camera
- Dual 13MP Rear Cameras
- 3,040mAh Battery
- Android Nougat
A piece of new information, however, revealed that instead of the PH-1 model number shared on the Essential webpage, the device will carry a model number of “A11”. This is nothing monumental, but worth mentioning for consistency sake.
Let us know if you’re still interested in the Essential Phone and if you’ll be looking to pick one up once it’s made available.
