The highly awaited Nothing Phone (1) is all set to launch in the Indian and international markets on July 12. In order to create a buzz around the phone, the London-based tech company announced the smartphone will be sold through an exclusive invite-based system. Which meant signing up on the Nothing Phone 1 website and getting an invite code. As the launch date got closer, the invite-based system was scrapped and pre-order passes were made available on Flipkart.
Nothing Phone (1): Specs and Launch Date
The Nothing Phone (1) is set to globally launch today. The launch event will be live-streamed on YouTube at 8:30 pm IST. Users can sign up on the Nothing Phone website to get regular updates about the launch.

Nothing Phone (1): Get your Pre-order Pass on Flipkart
Earlier, users had to register to the Nothing Phone 1 website to receive an invite code, which could be redeemed for a Rs 2,000 pass on the Flipkart website. But now users can directly avail the pre-order pass from Flipkart at a price of Rs 2,000. There is no need for an invite code to avail the pass.
Once you’ve purchased the pass, you can buy the phone starting July 12 at 9:00 pm IST till July 18 at 6:00 pm IST. The pass can be refunded for the full amount if you do not decide to buy the phone.
While the price of the Nothing Phone hasn’t been officially announced yet, reports suggest that it could cost anywhere between Rs 30,000-40,000. According to a previous leak on the Amazon Germany website, the 8GB RAM/128GB storage model costs €469.99 (approx. $491) and the 12Gb RAM/256GB storage model costs €549.99 (approx. $575).
