Essential Confirms New Color Option Coming To Its PH-1 Handset

Every few days, Essential team members start discussion an AMA ("Ask Me Anything") session on Reddit. The most recent AMA featured Dave Evans (VP of Design), Linda Jiang (Head of Industrial Design), and William Leggett (Director of Product Design), who have revealed more information on the future of the PH-1 handset.

The team members confirmed that a new color option called Stellar Gray (matte black) is in the works and should be launched soon. They have also confirmed that the IP67 rating was impossible to implement to the current phone design, but that should be included with the PH-2.
