Essential Phone adds three new colors in Spring Collection

Essential Phone adds three new colors in Spring Collection

Now, the phone comes in three new colors that cost an extra $100.

With the teaser image, Essential also hinted at what could be a color-shifting finish for the new "Ocean Depths", as 9 to 5 Google notes.

Smartphone manufacturers seem to like coming up with their own creative little explanations for each new color, so I'll let Essential do the talking here.

At launch, Essential stated that the Stellar Grey and Ocean Depths colors for the Essential Phone would launch in short order. The company is touting the new colors as "limited edition", but considering the number of people actually buying Essential Phones, it's hard to imagine these things selling out anytime soon.

Essential made an Amazon-exclusive version of its phone with Alexa preinstalled

In a blog post, Essential explained the new Essential Phone models feature a custom ceramic colour, which the company described as a "feat". This playful design is quite the statement piece for someone looking for a truly unique phone that will make waves among a sea of lookalike devices. It turns out that Andy Rubin and friends actually had even more in store, with a Stellar Gray and a never-before-seen Copper Black also coming onto the scene.

Stellar Gray, on the other hand, has a matte black back which is said to offer a smooth touch and comfortable grip.

And finally, there is the Copper Black variant that has a high gloss and ceramic black back, with a copper band around the sides and around the fingerprint reader. The first to go on sale will be Ocean Depths on Thursday, 12PM PST. Stellar Gray will be available on February 20th at 12PM PST, with the Copper Black option going on sale the 22nd.
