Essential PH-1 Supports USB Power Delivery 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 for Fast Charging and 4K Video Over USB Type-C

Essential is well known as Android co-founder Andy Rubin's new gig, braving a very competitive smartphone market dominated by Apple and mainly Korean and Chinese based competition. The Essential PH-1 is the first major phone by Essential and like the Google Pixel phones, supports USB Power Delivery rather than Qualcomm Quick Charge for fast charging.

The Essential PH-1 doesn't have a 3.5 mm audio port so it comes with a USB Type-C to 3.5 mm audio adapter. Other accessories includes a 27 watts USB Power Delivery adapter, USB Type-C to Type-C cable, SIM removal pin, and documentation.

The Essential PH-1's 27W USB Power Delivery adapter supports 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps) and 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps) of charging. 27 watts is a lot more than other 18 watts USB Power Delivery and Qualcomm Quick Charge chargers usually shipped with phones.

The Essential PH-1 uses a titanium shell which is also unique among the competition, although the phone is still not totally impervious to dents and screen cracks. The phone feels heavier and more rugged than others, contributing to its positioning as a touch premium product.

The Essential PH-1 has a single USB Type-C port that supports USB 3.1 Gen 1, USB Power Delivery 2.0, as well as DisplayPort 1.2.

The Essential PH-1 is smooth all around with no protruding bumps other than the volume and power buttons.

Using the USB Power Delivery Compliance C2 Tester from Granite River Labs to run just a subset of the full USB Power Delivery compliance test suite, we can see that the phone supports three PDO's for charging: 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps), 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps), and 27 watts (12 volts @ 2.25 amps). Note some compliance failures were observed. We can also see that it uses a Qualcomm based USB Power Delivery solution and confirmed DisplayPort Alt Mode support.
