After a few weeks delay, Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone is now available for pre-order through Telus for $1,050 CAD outright.

The phone is available for as low as $290 CAD on two-year Premium Plus plan. You can also get the phone for $490 CAD with plans starting at $85 per month.

The Essential PH-1 is available in two colours, Black Moon and Pure White. The phone has a 5.71-inch bezel-less Full Display with an aspect ratio of 19:10 and a resolution of 2560 x 1312. It’s being powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM and has a 128GB of internal storage.

As for cameras, the device has a dual-lens setup on the back, one 13-megapixel RGB + Mono camera and a 13-megapixel True Monochrome lens.

The phone’s body is made from a mix of titanium and ceramic, which Essential says makes the device more durable.

The Essential is available unlocked at $699 USD from the company’s website but they currently only ship to the US, so Telus is your only option for Canadians. However,¬†Telus says the device will be unlocked, so technically non-Telus customers can purchase the device outright.

Essential’s 360 Camera Mod for the PH-1 is also available for an extra $100 CAD when bought with the phone (or $270 CAD separately) and can capture 4K 360-video.

You can pre-order the Essential Phone from Telus’s site.
