The Essential is finally available for purchase, sort of. The phone has popped up on BestBuy in both Unlocked and Sprint flavors.
Interestingly the unlocked is cheaper than the supposedly subsidized Sprint one ($699.99 vs $749.99). You can get the phone in either Black Moon or Pure White.
Essential PH-1 on BestBuy
As for when it will start shipping to buyers – BestBuy only states that it’s coming soon. The Essential has been plagued by delays ever since it missed its first shipping target back in June.
