Despite being announced all the way back in May, the Essential Phone still has yet to arrive. However, things are changing as more and more of those who pre-ordered the device are beginning to receive emails stating that the device will be shipping within 7 days.

If you didn’t get in on the pre-order hype train (that has derailed quite a bit), then you head over to the Essential website and order yours now. The device is priced at $699 and was expected to include a free 360-degree camera attachment, but it seems that won’t be the case.

In the email regarding the shipping information for the Essential Phone, it’s stated that those who have reserved the Essential 360 camera will receive another email at a later date. Unfortunately, there’s no more information to go off of at this time.

It’s definitely been a rocky start for Andy Rubin’s latest venture, as the company went weeks without giving anyone an update regarding what was going on. However, things are looking up after the company received at $1.2 billion valuation, plus the company received $300 million from funding partners.

Let us know what you think about the Essential Phone and if the hype has finally died to the point where the company has a lot of work to do.
