The brand new handset is currently listed for pre-orders on Essential’s own website as well as on Sprint and Best Buy – though it seems each vendor will have a different offer for the phone (more details on that will follow later, but Sprint is reported to offer a $260 discount at retail).
Hate spammy ICOs and crappy cryptocurrencies?
So do we.
The Essential Phone will be available unlocked from its own web store at the price of $699. Those interested in getting the auxiliary 360 camera module can take advantage of a limited time bundle that includes both for $749.
Additionally, the handset will be available in both ‘Black Moon’ and ‘Pure White’ Colors.
