The Nothing Phone (1) is now available for purchase in Japan following a comparatively successful debut for a startup and new entrant into the smartphone sector.
Even while it is by no means a flagship, the phone offers several unique features for a sub-$500 phone, including an attractive design and a clean Android 12 interface. Nothing CEO Carl Pei announced that his debut smartphone would not be released in the US right away after leaving OnePlus. At this point, it’s unclear if it will happen sooner or later, but this first expansion into a new area could be a positive indicator.
This isn’t the first Nothing product to be made available in the area; the Ear (1) Bluetooth earphones were offered for sale at a few chosen Japanese merchants not long after they were introduced to the rest of the world.
The Nothing Phone (1) will be released for the first time in Japan, with both the official and not yet verified Twitter account stating that pre-orders will begin on August 10. The smartphone will be available for purchase starting on August 19.
The Nothing Phone (1) will be sold via a number of Japanese merchants, including Amazon.jp, Bic Camera, Edion, Iijmio, Yodobashi, Yamada, and more. Unofficial Japanese price has not yet been made accessible, which is a shame.
The smartphone powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778 has a 4,500mAh battery, a 120Hz OLED display, an intriguing Glyph lighting panel on the back, and a transparent backplate. Samsung JN1 ultra-wide and a Sony IMX766 primary sensor make up the 50-megapixel camera system.
While the US market may have to wait a little longer, this is fantastic news for Nothing Phone (1) enthusiasts in Japan. Let’s hope that it soon makes its way to the area.
