Nothing Phone (1), the first smartphone from OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei’s new venture, will launch on July 12th, 2022. Nothing is hosting an event in London at 8:30 PM IST where it will unveil its first smartphone. The event will be live-streamed on its official website and YouTube channel. The brand refers to the phone as its most important product yet.
According to Nothing, the upcoming launch event is “the real start of Nothing’s adventure,” and it’s “an invitation to unlearn all the industry has taught us.” The Nothing Phone (1) will be exclusively available on Flipkart in India. It will be the second offering from Nothing. The company had launched ear (1) as its first product and the true wireless earbuds received critical acclaim for its price and features.
