Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone has hit a new retailer: Best Buy. The outlet is now selling the 5.7-inch bezel-less ceramic/titanium smartphone for $699 unlocked, meaning you can use the device on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Best Buy is also offering up to two years of Geek Squad protection for $174.99 with your purchase. Right now, you can only buy it in Black Moon, but the Pure White option should launch soon.

In addition to Best Buy, you can also buy the Essential Phone from Sprint stores, Amazon, and Essential itself. New accessories for the device will also be launching soon like a charging pad and headphone jack adapter. We’ll let you know when they become available.

The Essential Phone features a ceramic and titanium body, a 5.7-inch edge-to-edge screen, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat, dual 13MP cameras, and a 3040mAh battery.
