The Essential Phone is officially discontinued, and a successor may be coming

"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". Essential Phone was released way back in 2017 and despite the fact that there were a couple of speculations on its successor, there was no official hope that this smartphone will be getting a successor.

Almost two years later the Essential phone still has big names like Samsung beat in certain areas.

An Essential spokesperson confirmed to Droid Life that the handset, also known as the PH-1, isn't available anymore and won't be restocked again. On top of that, the Essential Phone will continue to receive software updates in a timely manner.

Essential PH-1 was one of the first smartphones to adopt the waterdrop style notched display to the market initially introduced at a price of $699 (approximately Rs 49,000). Earlier this year, they canceled the second generation of the Essential Phone, so this is at least a hint that we should expect something different from the PH-1.

The latest ruling came as lawmakers Thursday enacted a new law to largely restore the board to how it operated before 2016. The party has also said they will not accept appointments to the temporary board Cooper is trying to establish.


The device went out of stock during the holiday season not only on the Essential Shop but also on third-party websites.

At the moment, there's no word on when the phone maker will unveil its next mobile product or reveal what it exactly is.

Despite all of the inventory drying up, though, Essential does appear to be continuing support for existing devices, and they're still selling some of the accessories that you may not even want.
