Essential Phone can now be used on Verizon networks

Essential Phone goes on sale in Sprint stores September 14th

That means those fancy and expensive headphones or earbuds that you have been using won't work with the Essential Phone without an adapter.

In a Reddit AMA with Andy Rubin, the smartphone's creators, and other employees at Essential, the company confirmed that a 3.5mm headphone jack "Click Accessory" is on its way. He went on to say that the company is now working on a "high-end audio accessory" that will bring back the 3.5mm headphone jack into the Essential Phone.

"That's the part we're not too happy about, but luckily it's software and we've already done a number of updates to the app to fix bug and add features". "We are continuing to look at supporting ideas, like cameras", reads the Reddit post.

In the Reddit AMA, one Redditor asked what other attachments are coming to the Essential Phone to take advantage of its modular nature. The final prototype build is said to arrive this month and the company plans to put it through reliability testing first before making it available for purchase.

Headphone jacks are pretty big components and they don't play nice with all-screen Phone architectures.

"We studied it very seriously, but fitting a headphone jack into our Phone required tradeoffs we were uncomfortable with", a company official explained. We'd have grow a huge "chin" in the display and reduce the battery capacity by 10%, or we'd need a huge headphone bump!

The Essential team members revealed information related to some additional accessories that the Essential Phone would soon be getting. By the time you make all the payments, which are discounted for a limited amount of time, you will have coughed up a little over $260 less than if you bought the Essential Phone unlocked, the latter of which is a $700 endeavor. For those that own the Essential PH-1, also referred to simply as the Essential Phone, the update to Oreo may be of particular interest as many thought the phone would end up launching with Oreo out of the box, but that ended up not being the case when the phone was announced earlier this year.
