Essential Phone hits volume production
Knowing when to call mass production on the iPhone 8 requires a little bit of reading into revenue figures from contingent manufacturers. Knowing when to call mass production on the Essential Phone only requires Andy Rubin to tweet a few pictures out.
The co-creator of Android has notified his followers the Essential PH-1 is indeed “in full mass production”.

Further availability details are said to come next week, so the delays continue to stack up from the original promise of July shipments.
Earlier today, Essential president Niccolo De Masi confirmed the identities of the company’s Series B funders, announced further retail partners and set a bar for sales in “the low single digit millions”.
