In May, Android co-founder Andy Rubin unveiled a new flagship-class Android handset, the Essential Phone.

With a damage-resistant finish, the Essential phone seeks to evolve with technology by offering interchangeable attachments, like a 360-degree camera that's created to "democratize" the video format.

"Great news, your phone has been built!" the email reads. This title is even more impressive, given that Essential has yet to ship a single device to consumers. However, those who ordered the white model will have to wait "a couple weeks", as only the "black moon" option will be ready to ship in the next seven days.

Reports said, the Essential PH-1 will run you $699 Dollars or $749 USD for the version with a 360-degree camera.

According to Bloomberg columnist Tim Culpan, Foxconn's FIH Mobile, one of Essential's latest investors, has filed for a $3 million investment that offers back just 0.25% of the company. From its looks alone, this can probably rival Google's upcoming Pixel phones and Apple's new iPhone.

Right now, Essential is gearing up to release its first smartphone. At the time, he made a point of saying that the company "wouldn't be taking reservations if it wasn't going to ship in 30 days or so".

The handset is also being sold unlocked in the United States direct by Essential and the device has been available to pre-order for a while.
