DxO ONE with USB-C port for Android is now available for $499 in ‘Early Access pack’

You might remember DxO as the firm behind all those smartphone camera ratings, but the company is branching out into hardware. The DxO ONE with USB Type-C was announced earlier this year, and though an iPhone version with a Lightning port has been available since 2015, it’s taken until now for an Android version to arrive. And at $ 499, it’s not cheap.

The DxO ONE isn’t even officially out; DxO is simply letting users sign up for an ‘Early Access pack.’ Within this pack, you’ll get the DxO ONE itself, as well as a $ 59.90 case that’s waterproof down to 45 meters and $ 199 DxO PhotoLab image processing software for free.

DxO’s detachable One camera is available now for Android for $499 through an early access program

It’s been a long time coming, but Android users can finally get their hands on a USB-C version of DxO’s detachable smartphone camera — sort of. DxO isn’t doing an “official” launch of the Android camera just yet, but if you’d like to get in on the action early, you can sign up for the company’s “Early Access pack” for $ 499 over at the DxO website, according to Android Central.

That $ 499 gets you the USB-C version of the DxO One that was designed for Android phones a few months ago, along with a rugged Outdoor Shell access to DxO’s PhotoLab software. It’s the same price that the original DxO One for iOS runs for, which doesn’t make this a bad deal either.

The only caveat is that DxO is only listing a few phones that will support the…

[Update: Price changes now live] Essential Phone gets a permanent price drop to $499

Besides the poor camera performance, perhaps the biggest complaint with the Essential Phone was the price. While the phone definitely had a premium design with a good software experience, the $ 700 asking price was a sore point for potential buyers.

The Essential Phone now costs $499, $200 less than the original price

Essential is slashing the price of its eponymous phone, down to $ 499 at its website. That’s a $ 200 price cut from the original $ 699 price, less than two months after it began shipping to customers. There is really no other way to read the move except as a signal that it wasn’t selling well at $ 699 — especially given that the only US carrier stores it’s available in have “Sprint” above the door. It certainly doesn’t help that it now has to face the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL head-to-head.

Of course, that’s not how Essential sees it, saying that the price drop is there in lieu of “a massive TV campaign to capture your attention,” which is hard not to see as a wry Google and Apple dig. “We think making it easier for people to get their hands on…
