Nothing is a popular brand that is known by one and all, albeit an underrated one, and its makers aspire for their venture to be one day counted in the same league as Apple, Samsung, and their ilk, due to which it does not usually get the amount of attention that it deserves.
Even though the company was founded in October 2020, it has achieved a considerable amount of success in less than two years, which is no less than a herculean achievement thereby setting a benchmark for upcoming ventures to follow although given the stiff competition from other brands, it will be difficult to match up to their level.
It was launched by Carl Pei, who is also a co-founder of OnePlus, on 27 January 2021 with extremely high level of hopes as many of its investors were sceptical about the project given that it was launched in the midst of a global pandemic but Mr. Pei was firm in his belief that it will work out fine.
Nothing Phone 1 will be launched in India on the Flipkart Big Billion Days 2022 Sale at a starting price of Rs.28,999 along with the Google Pixel 6a, which will be available at Rs.27,699, and both prices are after discounts and other offers have been applied for both handsets.
IDFC and HDFC card holders have a reason to celebrate as Flipkart is offering a 10% discount for their transactions during sale, which the portal announced on its official website.
The event will be streamed live as Flipkart will announce the specific time of the streaming because users are waiting with bated breath to learn more about the two models along with many other devices that might be available for purchase.
Nothing Phone 1 and Google Pixel 6a are both listed on Flipkart along with their features and prices, which are Rs.33,999 and Rs.43,999, respectively, but as former’s variants were hiked by Rs.1,000, it is still unknown whether the latter’s price will be hiked as well.
