The basic cell Phone has yet to be released in the market but one redditor claimed that he saw the smartphone out in the wild.
How did the Snapchatter know it’s the Essential Phone?
A video of a man using the new phone was shared on YouTube, showing off the phone that is not even out in the market.
The 9-second video showed a white smartphone being used by a man who was also wearing a pair of earphones.
Compare the images below:Some people are saying the phone in the video could just be a prototype, noting the difference between the color of the bezels.

The Essential Phone is due to start shipping out to customers soon, but we don’t have an exact date just yet.
The user was caught on Snapchat, so we’re really just looking at a short 10 second clip of the Essential Phone, not anything in-depth.
Despite the phone technically not being available, someone got their hands on one and managed to accidentally get captured in public using it.
The user is having a conversation in WhatsApp, and he gets a notification that drops in just like they do in Android Nougat.
Maybe this means Essential’s legal spat with Spigen won’t keep the device from a smooth launch.

The phone has been captured on video, and said video was then shared on YouTube for the rest of us to see.
Andy Rubin’s company must have been testing the device ahead of release, though, as one of the fully working prototypes has been spotted in the hands of a man in public transit.
