This particular variant will go on sale today, February 15, at 12:00 PM PT. The first two are actually not new as they were announced back when the phone launched.

The three new colors are Ocean Depths, Stellar Gray, and Copper Black. (When asked, an Essential spokesperson told us the company "doesn't comment on third-party reports.") The limited nature of these redesigned devices, however, means they may not have a huge impact on overall unit sales and Essential's bottom line.

Interestingly, you'll have to pay extra for the privilege of owning any of the three new color variants. This is unusual as other manufacturers usually keep the price uniform irrespective of color. "Our team of designers and engineers spent months developing custom ceramic colors, a feat that is much more complex and challenging than altering colors on standard materials such as plastic", said Linda Jiang, the head of industrial design at Essential. The Stellar Gray variant will go on sale at the same time on February 20, while the Copper Black variant will be sold on February 22 at 12PM (PST). It also mentioned the difficulty associated with production, hence the reason for it being available in limited quantities.

All variants will be available on the official online store.
