Essential claims that designing custom colors for ceramic is much more hard than it is for, say, plastic, and I don't doubt that. Rather than partner with ceramics vendors that could more quickly scale up production of these new colors, Essential instead chose to work with an experienced vendor from Japan on a smaller run where they could more closely control the quality of these finishes. While the teaser image did point to a "new" color variant of the Essential PH-1, Essential has actually announced three new colors for the phone. Asking users to pay an extra $100 for a limited edition color isn't usually a great idea, but in Essential's case, two of the new colors are rather unique.

Want to see the three colors?

Meanwhile, Essential will also launch the Stellar Gray (pictured just above) color option, which offers a matte black back for a "sooth touch and comfortable grip".

The third new color, Copper Black, was not shown off before. And lastly, Copper Black features a glossy black back and a copper band; Essential says this combo was "inspired by high-end accessories and timepieces". Those new Essential Phone colors are Ocean Depths, Stellar Gray, and Copper Black.

The three new limited edition colors will go on sale at different times.
