It's official - the Essential PH-1 will be a one carrier exclusive in Canada as well as the US.
The confirmation comes from the carrier itself via a tweet and its subscribers can expect pre-orders for the new smartphone to begin at the end of July.
The Essential PH-1 is a Sprint exclusive in the US where it's "expected" to begin shipping to those who pre-ordered in the next 30 days.
Carrier exclusives make it hard for a maker to reach a wider audience, but sometimes the better conditions they give allow smaller companies to pay the bills until they expand their market shares.
As for us eager fold on the other side of the pond we're yet to find out if and when we can expect the Essential phone.
I don't know, 4 GB is enough for me, but I don't know what this dude do on his phone lol
Yeah but who really needs more than 4GB I mean come on now let's be real.
As a phone (flagship) it is really interesting, etc. But as availability yes it is really limited, unfortunately.
