Essential Phone on sale at Amazon and Best Buy, free gift included with purchase


Interested in trying the Essential Phone now that it’s been updated to Android 8.1 Oreo? It looks like now may be a good time to do it.

The Essential Phone is now on sale at Amazon and Best Buy. Amazon is including a free pair of Essential Earphones|HD (normally $99) with every purchase, while Best Buy is throwing in a free $25 gift card with each purchase.

Also of note is that while both the Black Moon and Pure White versions of the Essential Phone are available from Amazon and Best Buy, Amazon is also discounting the limited edition Halo Gray model that offers a matte finish.

As a refresher, the Essential Phone offers flagship-tier specs like a 5.71-inch 2560×1312 display, dual 13MP rear camera setup with one RGB sensor and one monochrome sensor, and a Snapdragon 835 processor. It’s also packing 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 3,040mAh battery, and as we mentioned before, it was recently updated to Android 8.1 Oreo, which is something not many other phones can boast.

These Essential Phone deals will only be available for the next few days, so if you’re thinking about jumping on them, you’ll want to act soon.
