Essential may’ve just introduced three new limited edition colors for its first smartphone, but that’s not slowing the company’s roll by any means. Newly listed on Amazon is an exclusive “Halo Gray” finish of the Essential Phone which includes a matte black exterior and silver trim, the same used on the Pure White PH-1. It’s a similar look to the new Stellar Gray that’s currently in limited supply.


The new color isn’t the only thing different here, however. This particular model of the Essential Phone actually ships with Alexa onboard. It comes in the form of a pre-loaded app and it can’t be uninstalled. So basically, if you wanted a new Android phone from the creator of Android running an Android version of Alexa, today’s your lucky day.

Furthermore, this model won’t be limited in quantities.

For the first three days of availability, the Essential Phone at Amazon will cost just $449, $50 less than its standard price. Afterward, it’ll go back up to $499. Therefore, you’ll wanna grab the device at its discounted price while you can starting February 21st.
