On May 30, a father of Android betrothed that he’d boat his desirous Android phone within 30 days. That was 37 days ago.

“It has to be a pitch for a fences,” Andy Rubin, now a father of wannabe disrupter Essential, pronounced that day. 

The $700 phone (which translates to about £550 or AU$940) wants to bend a approach in to an impacted smartphone market. The Essential PH-1 stands out for a slim bezels, 5.7-inch shade and captivating modules, like a 360-degree camera, that will snap on to a phone. (Sounds familiar? Motorola phones like a new Moto Z2 Play have captivating Mods, too.)

We can endorse that CNET’s dual Essential orders haven’t arrived. Essential didn’t respond to a ask for criticism when we asked about a timeline.

Missing a deadline is common in a phone world, generally one that’s self-imposed one like Rubin’s. Schedules customarily trip with holdups to prolongation and program tweaks. Sometimes, phones are behind as they pass FCC and conduit approval. Ordinarily, companies usually share ballpark timelines to equivocate name-and-shame stories like this one. 

But when a high-profile exec like Rubin creates a promise, we take note. Here’s anticipating that a check means a Essential is removing some additional TLC that helps it equivocate program bugs and compromised hardware, a kind that done final year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 7 go boom.

The Essential phone will sell in a US first, possibly through Sprint or Essential’s website.
