However, while the phone is definitely coming to the UK market, there is currently little information about exactly when. The Financial Times has managed to dig up details which suggest it will arrive by the end of 2017.

There is some indication, though, that it will be locked to certain carrier exclusives in the UK, according to FT's report, Essential reps met with their counterparts from UK networks, EE was specifically mentioned but it is implied others were also in talks with the phone maker. Quite which firm will get the deal remains to be seen, although EE and Carphone Warehouse have a habit of snapping these things up.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

Not yet but you can be sure whichever network it is will be doing a big advertising campaign.
