Essential Phone 2 confirmed…probably not.
I want an Essential Phone 2, probably more than anyone. You guys are well aware of that. Today, Essential left the door open for such a sequel during their monthly AMA, and yeah, I’m (over)hyped. This entire post might also be a massive reach, but sometimes that’s where we start when trying to make dreams come true.
The Essential team was asked today if they would consider a trade-in program should they introduce a new device as a way to reward loyal customers. Their response?
Thanks for the suggestion! It’s something we’ve definitely discussed.
Wait. A company who supposedly isn’t making a new phone and was trying to sell itself off, is discussing a trade-in program for the new phone they supposedly weren’t making? 🤔
Of course, this could mean nothing (probably means nothing!)! It could be in reference to the home hub thing they are making or something else…be a new phone, dammit! Be the PH-2. Be the Essential Phone 2.
OK, I’m done.
