“The new move comes as the startup attempts to make it even easier for you to experience our products and our band,” said Niccolo de Masi, President and Chief Operating Officer, Essential.
“At Essential, one of our driving principles is that premium craftsmanship and the latest technologies shouldn’t be for the few. We could have created a massive TV campaign to capture your attention, but we think making it easier for people to get their hands on our first products is a better way to get to know us,” he added.
In comparison, while the Google Pixel 2 XL price starts at $849, the base iPhone X model costs $999. While the Essential Phone isn’t a hot item in the market, the revised price might attract some strays from the popular flagship devices.
