After the announcement of Essential Phone in May last year, the smartphone was officially sold only in the US. Earlier this month, the company began selling it in Canada, but through Amazon and only in limited quantities. And now there was news that the manufacturer announced the opening of several official stores.
What is known
According to Essential, now their device is sold in five other countries: Canada, Germany, France, Great Britain and Japan. Naturally, five countries of the world - not so much already. But the company, which sold only 90,000 devices in the first six months, this could positively affect the future. Also the manufacturer recently released three new exclusive colors and a version of the smartphone with voice assistant Amazon Alexa.
Recall, Essential PH-1 received 5.7-inch IPS screen, a Snapdragon 835 processor, a battery for 3040 mAh, as well as 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. In addition, it has a dual module of the main camera. The first is ordinary, and the second one is monochrome. Both are at 13 MP. Out of the box, the smartphone worked on Android 7.1 Nougat, but recently the device was upgraded to Android 8.1 Oreo.
