Essential Phone sold out, no new units will be produced

According to what the Essential representative told 9to5Google in a recent interview, all units of the device have been sold out before the end of 2018; what is more is that no new units will be made.

EP accessories will still be produced, but other than that, the company is supposedly hard at work on the next device.Oh well. One and half an year in the market is not bad for such a relatively unpopular product. ...

Render of Moto G7 Supra leaked

Evan Blass has just uploaded a render of the upcoming Moto G7 Supra smartphone. This device is reportedly made specifically for the American wireless service provider Cricket. Its render depicts a device with a small waterdrop notch, 2 or 6 GB RAM, 32 or 64 GB ROM, Snapdragon 632 Mobile Platform, 5000mAh battery, 12 mpx main camera and 8 mpx selfie shooter.
