Essential Phone Release Date Delay: Company Loses Several Executives Ahead Of Launch

Essential Phone

GOOGLE CO-FOUNDER Andy Rubin is reportedly planning to bring his Essential Phone to the UK.

Are you excited for the launch of the Essential Phone?

What's raising more questions now is the news that the company's VP of marketing, Brian Wallace, has left the company. Speaking with The Financial Times, Niccolo de Masi seems confident that the Essential Phone will be enough to shift the way the smartphone market is structured now, implying that the device will accelerate the pace of innovation, which is often manipulated and slowed down by companies like Samsung and Apple in an effort to "boost quarterly profits".

Andy Fouché, an advisor who also worked as Essential's head of communications, left the company last month, according to Business Insider.

In terms of power, it runs off the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB RAM. Essential COO Niccolo de Masi sat down with FT for a brief chat and revealed that bit about launch and also threw in some worldwide plans.

According to a Financial Times report, the start-up, helmed by Android co-creator and founder Andy Rubin has entered into negotiations with United Kingdom networks over a possible exclusivity deal for a British launch "this year". Earlier this year, the company debuted the Essential Phone, a flagship $700 smartphone with premium-tailored design (the body features a mix of ceramic and titanium) that aims to go head to head with competitors like Apple and Samsung. The firm is reportedly holding similar talks across Europe and in Japan.

Andy Rubin's Essential Phone is due to ship in the U.S. some time soon and now it has been revealed that the handset is also coming to the UK. For the time being, Fouché's position is being held by Essential's head of product marketing.
