Essential today confirmed on Twitter they will be unveiling its first phone’s release date tomorrow, August 17th. The company was originally expected to do so today after the news broke we’d see release information “in a week.” While it’s been exactly a week since then, at least we’re getting something a bit later rather anything at some point in the distant future.

Customers who reserved the Essential Phone are also beginning to be notified their orders will be shipped in the next week. Only time will tell when this handset goes on sale, and it looks like tomorrow we’ll know for sure.
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.
