Nothing Phone (1) is less than a week away from July 12 unveiling, but the interest is never-ending. First, Carl Pei’s new venture Nothing revealed the handset’s design ahead of the launch, ensuring it got all the attention ahead of the unveiling. Now, Flipkart, the e-commerce partner of Nothing, has teased a discount offer even before the prices are announced.
The timing of the offer is interesting as the company started taking pre-orders for the Nothing Phone (1) without an invite code ahead of July 12 launch.
Flipkart’s bank offer is limited to HDFC Bank customers. The Nothing Phone (1) will be available with a Rs 2,000 flat discount via HDFC Credit Card and EMI transactions. This could further sweeten the phone deal for customers in India.
The biggest highlight of the phone is its back panel. In addition, the lighting setup is unique and lights up for different types of notifications. The phone runs on Nothing OS, and if anyone wants to try it, then they can download the Nothing launcher (beta) via Google Play Store. It is available for compatible Android handsets. Notably, the Nothing Phone (1) will be made in India.
Nothing Phone (1) Specifications and price (expected)
The company has already revealed some details of the upcoming smartphone, including the Snapdragon 778G+ processor. Alongside, the phone will support wireless charging and even reverse wireless charging. On the chipset, Pei has stressed that the mid-range 778G+ SoC is a balanced choice for Nothing Phone (1).
Talking about other features, the phone is said to come with a 50-megapixel dual camera setup. The smartphone is also said to support a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. Other rumoured specs include a 6.55-inch OLED display and two variants – 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB.
In India, the Nothing Phone (1) was available earlier in an invite-only programme which allowed customers to pre-book the handset for a refundable amount of Rs 2,000.
Coming to the price, the Nothing Phone (1) price is likely to be aggressive, undercutting a bunch of mid-range smartphones from iQOO, OnePlus, Xiaomi, and Samsung. The first Nothing phone is said to start at around Rs 31,000 and go up to roughly Rs 36,000.
