Nothing Ear 1

UPDATE: While earlier we assumed the BIS listings pointed towards power banks in the making, industry sources tell us they are nothing but the charging cases for the upcoming TWS products.

Original story follows…

Nothing recently announced the launch of its upcoming truly wireless earbuds. Ear 1 is the company’s first product launching later this year. Carl Pei, Nothing’s CEO confirmed that the TWS will debut in June 2021. The CEO did not reveal the launch date or any further details. Ahead of the launch, the battery details of the TWS have listed on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website. The company is also planning to launch more products other than TWS. Two Nothing products are listed on BIS as power banks. The two products have the model number B181-C and B181-1. Let’s take a look at more details on the upcoming Nothing products listed on the BIS website.

Nothing Power Banks

Nothing is expected to launch its first TWS later this month. The company could also announce some more products alongside. Two new Nothing branded products have visited the BIS website. The devices have the model number  B181-C and B181-1. The two products are listed as Power Banks on the BIS website, according to tipster Mukul Sharma.

The listing does not reveal much about the power banks. However, it does hint at an imminent launch of the power banks. Nothing has not announced anything about the upcoming launch other than the name of its TWS, the Ear 1. 

Ear 1 TWS Case Battery Details Out

Sharma has also spotted the battery details of the upcoming Ear 1 TWS. The battery is listed on the BIS website with model number 801444PF4. Sharma claims that the battery is the same one used on the Xiaomi Mi Flipbuds Pro. It has a rated capacity of 570mAh/2.19Wh. 

Other details about the TWS are currently under the wraps. The company is yet to make an announcement on the launch date of the products. Carl Pei has confirmed that the TWS will debut in June. The TWS has already received the BIS certification previously.

The Ear 1 is expected to have some key elements of Concept 1, which was teased in March 2021.  The concept was designed based on three principles – Weightless, Timeless, and Effortless. “Design is still top secret but what we can tell you is that Ear 1 combines notes of transparency, iconic form, and refined functionality. It is the starting point that will define the artistry, confidence and craftsmanship that will carry our products and services for years to come,” Pei had said.
