Essential PH-1 To Be Launched In Other Markets As Well

While Andy Rubin, CEO of Essential, is staying quiet on whether the smartphone has been delayed, new information reveals that the Essential PH-1 won't be exclusive to United States, once it launches. At the moment, the phone is only available for pre-order in the US, where was supposed to start shipping by the end of last month.

Aside from the US, the handset will reach pretty much every big market, including the UK, Europe and Japan. There was no mention of pricing options for these regions, but since the Essential Phone will be available in the United States via Sprint for around $700, it should be priced slightly higher.
