About the incident, AndroidHeadlines reported referring to an employee of the US operator Sprint. According to him, the incident occurred by mistake Essential, which has already sent a message to retailers. The company also promised to provide compensation to the victims.

It is unlikely that the incident will cause serious damage to the company, given the weak sales of Essential Phone. According to IDC, in 2017 Essential sold 90,000 smartphones, which is insignificant even by the standards of Chinese manufacturers.
