Pre-order of the Essential Phone officially starts today

Sprint announced today that Android creator Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone is finally available for pre-order. 

The phones were originally supposed to be available 30 days after Essential launched in May, but that deadline proved to be unattainable. 

Yesterday, Essential customers who reserved the phone received an email notifying them that it would start shipping within 7 days. Today, the 5.71-inch phone with edge-to-edge display and 128GB of storage is finally available. 

The Essential Phone is a Sprint exclusive for now, and it could likely remain that way. It’s now available for U.S. customers at a $699 price tag. Bundling your phone with the Essential 360 Camera bumps that up to $749. 

Head to Sprint to place your order, and start enjoying the world from the perspective of your Essential Phone.
