Sales of the Essential PH-1 haven't exactly being in the millions, but the phone enjoys a rather dedicated fanbase. About 50,000 units were sold, in by the middle of last month, although the limited availability plays a large part in that. That does not prevent Andy Rubin and company from launching official accessories on the Essential website.
The company is now selling two types of earbuds, USB-C to 3.5 mm adapter, a fast charger and a hard case for the 360 camera.
The Earphones|Mini and Earphones|HD look the same, but they cost respectively $49 and $99. The more expensive option has 9.2 mm drivers for high-def sound (as opposed to just 5 mm drivers in the more affordable version). The earbuds have a USB-C connector and come in a hard-shell case.
If you donít want to buy new headphones, you can just get the 3.5 mm to USB-C adapter for $15, available in Black or White. The 27W Power Adapter comes in the same two color versions for $39.
Next week Essential will start selling a hard case for the 360 camera. It will be sold in Black or Red, but the price is yet to be confirmed.
That power adapter with USB Power Delivery over USB Type-C is great. A lot of other manufacturers are providing non USB PD ones over USB A connecting ports.
And where is the Essential Home? No updates since May...
I thought we're going to get some sort of base extension where it adds more bottom bezel but it adds a headphone jack from the side and a USB-C port. Not a dongle.
