There is still almost a month left for the Essential Phone to hit the market but there are some problems already before the release. One of the biggest accessory makers of smartphones Spigen has already trademarked the essential name for a number of accessories like battery packs, chargers, and Bluetooth headphones and they think that the similarities with Andy Rubins’s new company could cause confusion.
Spigen claims the new company has had its trademark attempt rejected twice, and because Essential Products is moving forward anyway, Spigen sent a cease-and-desist letter. The response from a spokesperson? “Essential believes they are without merit and will respond appropriately.” Essential is hardly a unique designation, but the close quarters of the products are interesting, even if the newcomer seems unbothered.
The essential phone is made my vision of the co-creator of Android sytem itself Andy Rubin and the phone seems impressive already. The Essential Phone is powered by 1.9GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 128GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Essential Phone packs a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies.The Essential Phone runs Android and is powered by a 3040mAh non removable battery. It measures 141.50 x 71.10 x 7.80 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 185.00 grams.
