The Essential Phone was undoubtedly one of the most underrated phones of 2018. It started with flawed software and camera issues, but the company worked diligently to publish updates. Many Android enthusiasts were eagerly awaiting the release of Essential 2 this summer. Unfortunately, there is news today from Bloomberg that Essential 2018 will not release a phone.
According to reports, Essential has appointed Credit Suisse Group AG to advise them on the profitability of selling the company. There are indications that at least one party is interested in buying the smartphone startup.
