Essential has confirmed the Essential Phone is being discontinued.
In other words, it’s no more.
In a statement sent to 9to5Google, a spokesperson for Essential said the following:
We are sold out of Essential Phone on essential.com and won’t be adding any new inventory. We are now hard at work on our next mobile product and will continue to sell accessories and provide speedy software updates and customer support to our existing community.
We have no clue what their “next mobile product” is going to be. There are rumours that Essential is working on a companion type device similar to the latest Palm phone, but it’s main interaction is through voice command.
On a positive note, Essential has stated that they will continue to provide software updates to current Essential phones.
This news may not come as a surprise for some as the successor to the Essential phone was cancelled back in May, and there have been countless sales over the last few months to drastically lower the phones price.
