While the Essential PH-1 smartphone has been quite popular, it seems like sales haven’t been too high or consistent. Well, limited availability of the device does also account for its lower sales. Reports claim that around 50,000 units were sold by the middle of last month. Considering how things are going, it’s only natural that the company would take up new ventures. The company has decided to sell official accessories on its website. So, what new products is the company launching?
This includes two types of earbuds, USB-C 3.5 mm adapter, a fast charger and even a hard case for the 360 camera. The Earphones|Mini and Earphones|HD look identical but the difference lies not only in the price which is $49 and $99 but also that the more expensive variant has 9.22 mm drivers for high-def sound. The reasonably priced $49 variant has 5 mm drivers. The earbuds connect via USB-C and are packed in a hard-shell case.
If purchasing new headphones isn’t your thing and you’d rather stick to the ones you already have, then you can simply purchase the 3.5 mm to USB -C adapter for $15. This will allow any 3.5 mm headphones to work with your Essential smartphone. The 27W Power Adapter is available for purchase at a price tag of $39 and is available in Black or White. The hard case for the 360 camera will go on sale from next week and will be available in Black or Red. However, pricing for this item hasn’t yet been confirmed.
