Key Features:

  • Beauty Meets Brawn -  There’s a reason titanium is used to build rockets and replace bones. Unlike aluminum, titanium doesn’t scratch, dent, or bend. We believe titanium is the perfect material to create one of the most essential things in our lives – one we all sometimes drop.
  • Full Display - With the Essential Phone’s stunning edge-to-edge Full Display there’s finally a large-screen device that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.

  • Cameras - The world’s thinnest dual camera system built for a phone. It uses both color and monochrome sensors that can capture up to 200% more light than traditional phone cameras. This results in stunning images that are rich in color and detail, even in low light.

  • Accessories that simply Click - Don’t you hate it when you have to buy new dongles, chargers, and accessories every time your phone is upgraded? We do too. So we decided to make this a thing of the past. The magnetic connector with wireless data transfer keeps your phone cord-free, future-proof, and always up-to-date.
