Andy Rubin's Essential Phone is Confirmed to Run Android 7.1.1 Nougat

Andy Rubin's Essential Phone is Confirmed to Run Android 7.1.1 Nougat

Now, prior to its launch, the firm has suffered a bit of a blow, losing its VP of marketing, Brian Wallace.

Early excitement for the Essential Phone has been somewhat spoiled by its delayed launch in the U.S. Those who purchased the handset early were promised the first units would begin shipping within 30 days, but that deadline has passed, and Essential still hasn't confirmed when its first phone will arrive.

The Essential Phone, built by Android creator Andy Rubin, will do battle against the iPhone in new markets around the world.

As soon as we get some more details on exactly when the new Essential Phone is coming to the United Kingdom and also details on when it will be available in the U.S., we will let you guys know.

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

We're still waiting for the Essential Phone to launch in the USA, and now it's been revealed that folks in a few other parts of the globe are going to be waiting with us.

The Essential Phone hasn't even arrived in the U.S. yet, but the latest report indicates that Andy Rubin is already preparing for its worldwide expansion. Towards the end of May, the Essential PH-1 was announced, offering a almost bezel-less experience and the ability to accept modular accessories, with the first being a 360-degree camera.

The Financial Times claims that Andy Rubin is already working with telecommunications companies around the world to launch the Essential Phone in the United Kingdom, other Western European countries, as well as Japan.

We're not implying there might be something bad happening over at Essential, but there might be something bad happening over at Essential. Essential COO Niccolo de Masi sat down with FT for a brief chat and revealed that bit about launch and also threw in some global plans.

For Rubin, Essential is far from his first time in the smartphone market.
