Andy Rubin: Essential Phone Launching ‘In a Few Weeks’

Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone was supposed to arrive within 30 days after it debuted, but that didn’t happen, unfortunately. It was unclear at the time why this was so, but in a new message being emailed to customers and posted to the company’s Twitter page, Rubin says the device is coming “in a few weeks” and explains what’s been holding off the launch.

According to Rubin, Essential has had to go through some certifications and further testing for compatibility with US and international carriers, likely to gear up for the launch on Sprint, TELUS, and EE. This is what held the phone back from launching when Rubin had originally hoped. So as long as they don’t have any further distractions, those who preordered the handset should expect the device, like Andy said, in a few weeks.

The Essential Phone has a 5.7-inch 2560×1312 bezel-less display, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, Android 7.1 Nougat, dual 13MP cameras, Bluetooth 5, and a 3040mAh battery sealed into a ceramic and titanium body.
