Stunning new Essential Phone model debuts as an Amazon exclusive

Today, Essential announced another new color, with Alexa built-in.

It isn't long since it was announced that the Essential Phone was finally available in the awesome Ocean Depths color, with Copper Black and Stellar Gray following suit a few days after each other.

Snowboarder Ledecka pulls super-G surprise
"That they're going to switch the time for some others", the 22-year-old told reporters immediately after her victory. I don't want to be rude - you are all great - but I didn't really expect that I would be sitting here.

Halo Gray takes a note from that variant, but trades the black titanium frame for a silver one, with the same matte texture on the back. I don't know if this is something current Essential Phone owners have been asking for, but nonetheless, it's here for your pleasure or to ignore. What's interesting about this is that the new model already comes with Amazon's Alexa app pre-installed.

The partnership with Amazon also makes a certain amount of sense on a business level, seeing as Amazon has invested in the Andy Rubin-helmed startup through the company's Alexa Fund.

Apple admits that HomePod will leave rings on certain wooden surfaces
At the time of writing the firm is not issuing a recall, nor it offering customers refunds or compensation for damage. It is now not clear if the problem affects all HomePods or just the initial batch given away to reviewers.

The Halo Gray Essential Phone is now available to pre-order exclusively from Amazon for $449, so it's $150 cheaper than the Ocean Depths/Stellar Gray/ Copper Black options.

Additionally, the Halo Gray model can also be bought in a bundle with Essential's 360-degree attachment. Amazon will begin shipping the phone from February 21. Therefore, you'll wanna grab the device at its discounted price while you can starting February 21st.

President Bidya Devi Bhandari administrated the oath of office to Oli at a ceremony organised at the presidential residence. Oli blamed the blockade on Delhi and tilted Nepal's diplomatic relations towards China , stoking nationalistic sentiment.

Just keep in mind Essential is now developing a follow-up phone due to debut late this spring or early summer.
