[EXCLUSIVE] Essential Is Targeting Monthly Security Patches For The Phone

The Essential Phone is quite a hot topic right now. Announced less than a month ago, the device is a truly innovative and intriguing piece of hardware. After contacting the company directly, we managed to get some info regarding the software updates for the device.

Established by Andy Rubin, the father of Android, the Essential company is aiming to provide quick security patches for their new device. Here is the answer we got after directly messaging the company asking about how they are planning to handle Google's monthly security patches:

We're committed to frequent updates and our goal is monthly security updates.

This is definitely great news, especially that very few OEMs provide regular security patches for their devices. In fact, Google's recent patch was only rolled out to 48 phone models worldwide which, considering how many devices are available on the market, is quite a poor score.

We should, of course, take this info with a pinch of salt since we all know companies are not very good at keeping their promises in terms of update speeds. However, if Essential sticks to what they told us, they will definitely gain some customer satisfaction by regularly improving the security level of the software on their phone.

In case you aren't familiar with the Essential Phone, here are the basic specifications of the device. The phone sports a 5.71-inch display with a resolution of 1312x2560 pixels. It comes with 128 GB of internal storage, backed up by 4 GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 835 processor, and a 3040 mAh battery. The front camera has a resolution of 8MP, while the rear camera is a 13MP shooter.

What are your thoughts on the Essential Phone? Do you think the company will manage to provide monthly security patches for their device? Let us know in the comments below.
