Last year, we witnessed a new smartphone brand and a device which came up with lots of new features, especially in camera. I am speaking about the Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone i.e. Essential PH-1, till now the device was only available in the United States. But now we are getting information which says, that the device may soon arrive in the markets of India.
According to the source, the Android co-creator’s company will launch the Essential PH-1 smartphone in the Indian soil by the end of March or in the early days of April. And the report also says, that the device will be available exclusively through Amazon India.
Moreover, the source also says that the device will be available in India for ₹24,999. We also need to remind that the company has recently launched the Halo Gray variant of this Essential PH-1, and it comes with the Amazon’s digital assistant Alexa integration and it is priced lower than the regular variants. So, I wouldn’t be surprised if the company launch the Halo Gray variant in India.
