Essential is being sued over its modular accessory technology
wtorek, 17 października 2017 18:00

Essential Inc launched its first smartphone earlier this year. The new company has already been subject to legal action, specifically from case manufacturer Spigen over its use for the 'Essential' brand name. Now it is being sued again, this time by Keyssa Inc, over the phone's connector for modular accessories. If you're not familiar with the Essential Phone, it has a connector on the back for attaching modular accessories, like a specially-designed 360-degree camera. Motorola's Moto Z series has a similar connector for its 'Moto Mod' accessories, but Essential's is a bit different. The actual pins on the back are only for charging; the actual data transfer is done over a dedicated 60GHz wireless connection.
