Nothing ear (1) black color option appears in latest leak
Nothing had launched its first truly wireless stereo (TWS) earphones, the ear (1), in July this year flaunting a unique transparent design with some parts in white. Now, tipster @evleaks has shared a press render of the upcoming black color option. The new color variant will likely retain the transparent design and replace the white parts with matte black.
Why does this story matter?
Nothing has already tasted success with its first-ever product, the ear (1). Although the company had launched the earbuds in limited stock, it has sold over 1,80,000 units of the single white color option. The upcoming black variant will further add to the sale by attracting buyers looking for a stealthy and unique pair of affordable wireless earbuds with ANC technology.
The buds offer in-ear detection and water resistance
The Nothing ear (1) has a transparent design, an IPX4-rated water resistance, and silicone tips. It offers touch controls, in-ear detection, and comes bundled with a carry-cum-charging case with a transparent design, a side button for pairing, and a Type-C charging port. Dimensions-wise, each bud measures 28.9x21.5x23.5mm and weighs 4.7g. The case tips the scales at 57.4g.
Nothing ear (1) sports three high-definition microphones
Nothing ear (1) comes with an 11.6mm dynamic driver along with three high-definition microphones. It offers support for Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology, Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, and is compatible with both Android and iOS devices.
The case is equipped with a 570mAh battery
The Nothing ear (1) packs a 31mAh battery in each bud and offers up to 4.5 hours of listening time with ANC on and up to six hours with ANC off. The case houses a 570mAh battery and promises up to 34 hours of playback time. It can be charged via a Type-C port or Qi wireless chargers.
