Essential's 'Pure White' phone arrives after two-month delay

Wait, this sounds familiar.

The Essential Phone may be a beautiful blank slate, but it was also always a black one. Until now. The company has finally readied its 'Pure White' option both at its own online store as well as the likes of Best Buy and Amazon. It's taken two months of delays for the color to arrive -- which might sound familiar to anyone that remembers Apple's own white iPhone issues several years back. Essential hasn't offered up any reasons for the delay.

The benefit for those that held out for the white option include the arrival of a camera update that promises better low-light photos and faster response times. However, it also means, two months later, that you're comparing your brand new preordered phone (that launched in September), against the likes of the iPhone 8 and the Pixel 2. Or, if you're all about the notches, that other iPhone. The other two color options, Stellar Gray and Ocean Depths, are still labelled as "available soon."
