Just a day after we learned the phone would start shipping to those who pre-ordered it through Essential, Sprint and Best Buy, Sprint has officially opened early orders.
You can only reserve the black Essential Phone on Sprint right now, though a white variant will be available at a later date.
Sprint is sweetening the pot by taking 50% off the Essential Phone on its Flex Lease Plan. Customers will pay $14.58 a month for 18 months with $0 down. That's a total savings of more than $260 though this offer is only good for a limited time.
Sprint is the exclusive carrier of the Essential Phone, and an unlocked version will be released at a later day.
