Essential Phone preorders to start shipping in 7 days

Essential Phone

This should come in as a welcome relief to all those prospective buyers of Essential Phone as Andy Rubin had previously tweeted that the highly-anticipated phone launch had been delayed by a few weeks.

Andy Rubin, one of the founders of the Android operating system, has a new smartphone company called "Essential". This, as well as some defections of top officials from the company, led to speculations about Essential landing itself in rough water and the hazy future of its first Phone.

The startup is working on the Essential Phone at the moment and it seems like that fact alone has been enough to drive up value for the company, with Essential being valued at over $1 billion without even shipping a phone to consumers. Essential has promised preorders will start shipping within a week.

Trump, in tweet, hits Amazon over taxes, jobs
Shares of the company fell 0.3 percent to $980.00 in premarket trade after Trump's comments. It's not the first time Trump has taken aim at Amazon for not paying taxes.

The Canadian network, which has exclusivity over the PH-1's carriage, is now offering those who registered with Essential's Canadian site a chance to pre-order the device in either its Black Moon or Pure White looks for CA$1,050 (US$825) outright.

Essential had also revealed last week that its device will be sold unlocked on Amazon and Best Buy. It also comes rocking a Snapdragon 835 and 4GB RAM, and its dual-camera feature coupled with the ability to select certain modules for an improved smartphone experience are also valid selling points for the product.
