Essential had announced a new camera update for the Essential PH-1 a couple of days ago, and now Essential announced that you will get free Earphones HD if you purchase the Essential PH-1 from the company. These earphones cost $99 on their own, while the device is priced at $499 at the moment, this essentially means that you'll get a $99 discount, as you'll be getting a pair of earphones for free. In its Twitter post, Essential did mention that this is a limited time deal, but the company did not mention when will it end, so it may be wise to act fast if you've been planning to get the Essential PH-1.
The Essential PH-1 is now available in three different color variants from the company, you can get the Black Moon, Pure White, or Stellar Gray versions of the phone, though do keep in mind that this offer is good for only the first two versions of the device, the ones that cost $499, as the Stellar Gray variant is priced at $599. The Essential PH-1 has been out in the market for quite some time now, and its sales were not exactly satisfactory for the company, and quite recently a report surfaced that Andy Rubin is planning to sell the company, but it turned out that report was false, as Mr. Rubin himself said that it's not happening. The Essential PH-1's price point at launch was considerably higher than it is right now, as the company was forced to cut down its price tag due to really low initial sales.
The Essential PH-1 was announced back in May last year, and it was one of the most powerful smartphones on the market back then, and it's still quite compelling. The device features a 5.71-inch 2560 x 1312 display, and it is made out of ceramic and titanium. The phone sports a really thin display notch, and thin bezels all around. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor fuels the phone, while the device comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Two 13-megapixel cameras are included on the back of the device, along with a fingerprint scanner, while a single 8-megapixel camera sits on the front side of the Essential PH-1.
