The Essential Phone is almost a year old but its availability has been limited to just North America alone. A few days ago, the manufacturer opened its online shop to a few more countries.
If you reside in the UK, France, Germany, and Japan, you can now order the Essential PH-1 and have it delivered to you. Canadians can also order an unlocked version instead of purchasing from Telus.
Essential is practically just shipping the phone to you from the US. You also have to check out in US dollars.
The price starts at $499 for the Black Moon and Pure White and jumps to $599 for the Stellar Gray and Copper Black variants. Delivery to these regions is already included in the price.
The Essential Phone is still a great buy nonetheless. Its tri-bezel-less display, ceramic back, and titanium frame make it one of the best looking and durable smartphones money can buy. It also has a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a whopping 128GB of storage.
The Essential Phone already has an update that takes it to Android 8.1 Oreo right from Android Nougat. Essential is also committed to pushing out updates as quickly as possible.
