Carl Pei’s Nothing will launch its first smartphone, the Nothing Phone (1) on July 1. Ahead of the official launch, 100 exclusive units have garnered over $2,600 (roughly Rs. 2,03,456) per unit in an auction. And now, the company is giving one more chance to all the interested buyers to buy the phone. The company is enabling users to enter a special waiting list which will increase their chances of getting their hands on the device.
Nothing says (via GSM Arena) that the Nothing Phone (1) will be available in limited quantities in the market and that being on a waiting list will increase the chances of buyers getting the phone even before it goes on sale. Furthermore, the company said that as soon as the stock becomes available, interested buyers who have joined the waiting list will be sent an invite code to secure the possibility of pre-ordering the device. Additionally, interested buyers will receive a £20 (approximately Rs 1,920) credit for the Phone (1) accessory or Nothing Year (1).
How to Buy Nothing Phone (1) in India?
In India, the upcoming Nothing Phone (1) will be available exclusively through Flipkart. The phone is already available for pre-order on Flipkart and interested buyers can visit the e-commerce platform to book their phone. Eligible buyers will receive an email containing an invite code. This email will also have a pre-order pass. The buyers will then have to pay Rs 2,000 to secure their pre-order pass using the invite code. Once the purchase window opens on July 12, these buyers will be able to complete the purchase by making the final payment. The pre-booking amount of Rs 2,000 will be adjusted at the time of final payment.
Nothing Phone (1) Expected Specs and India Price
