After slashing price of Essential PH-1 smartphone in the US, the company has now announced a price-cut for the device in Canada as well. Essential PH-1 by Andy Rubin will now sell at $650 CAD, instead of original price of $1,050 CAD. The phone will be available via Essential’s partner Telus in Canada. The company hasn’t specified a reason for the price-cut, though it is possible that the PH-1 hasn’t been a huge success.

To recall, Essential Phone got a significant price cut in the US last month. The high-end phone is now available for $499, down from $699. That’s a $200 price cut from the original price. In the US, Essential PH-1 phone buyers will get an additional $200 friends and family code, which can used to purchase either company’s 360-degree camera or another Essential Phone.

The smartphone competes with the likes of Apple iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 XL, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and more.
