  • Essential Phone

With Essential already missing Andy Rubin's self-appointed June ship date, the ambitious startup has been hit with major executive departures.

According to The Financial Times, Andy Rubin's company has already held talks with United Kingdom operators for the Essential Phone launch. The minimalist modular phone, which was created for "trend setters and technology seekers", according to the company's chief operating officer Niccolo de Masi, was supposed to start shipping in the United States within 30 days or so from the official announcement.

Essential's chief operating officer Niccolo de Masi told the publication that a USA release for the anticipated device is "imminent", while once again confirming that the Android-powered smartphone will be sold with no pre-loaded applications with "trend setters and technology seekers" meant to be the company's target market. And now, it seems that other countries around the world will finally get a chance to snag the smartphone for themselves. United Kingdom carriers such as EE are reportedly in talks with the company to set a launch date for the device, which is seen to be this year. Unfortunately, there is still no specific date provided that buyers can hold on to.

Now the only confirmed peripheral is a 360-degree camera which attaches to the phone via a magnetic pin connector it calls "Click", which cleverly transmits data to attachments over a wireless connection.

Brian Wallace joined Essential in December to head up marketing.

Niccolo de Masi says the United States launch is "imminent". Well, we're two weeks past the deadline and the Phone's nowhere to be seen. While there are fans out there who are disappointed by the slight delay, it looks like the wait will be over soon enough.

A couple of months ago, Android co-founder Andy Rubin introduced the Essential Phone, a handset that has a near bezel-less display and modular accessories that connect to pogo pins on the rear. Working with Wallace at Magic Leap, he was also an advisor to Essential.
