Essential Phone launch date to be revealed next week

A few weeks ago, Essential said that the Essential Phone would be released in a few weeks. It looks like potential owners will need to wait a bit longer to find out when their phone might finally arrive in their hands, though.

Essential president Niccolo De Masi recently spoke with The Wall Street Journal and said that we will all get an “exact date” for the Essential Phone’s launch date next week. There’s no exact date to circle on the calendar quite yet, but if you’ve been waiting for a firm launch date for the Essential Phone, it sounds like next week is our best bet. Jason Mackenzie, Essential’s Head of Sales, teased on Twitter that more information about the Essential Phone would be released next week, too.

De Masi also confirmed that Amazon and Best Buy will be selling the Essential Phone. We already know that Sprint is the exclusive carrier for the handset in the United States.

A lot of people are waiting to get their hands on the Essential Phone, and these delays may be annoying for them, but as long as the phone eventually finds its way to the market, hopefully it’s one of those “better late than never” situations.
