Here's how you can pre-order Nothing phone (1) in India
Nothing's debut smartphone, the phone (1), will launch on July 12. It will be up for grabs via an invite-only system. If you are interested in buying one, the company has now opened the public waitlist for a pre-order pass that will be needed to purchase the phone. However, private community members will get the invitation code for a pre-order pass without waiting.
Why does this story matter?
Nothing phone (1) is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2022. The brand is pulling out all the tricks in its bag to create some hype for the handset. And what better way than introducing an invite-only purchase system. The handset has also appeared on Geekbench 5, confirming that it will pack a Snapdragon 778G+ SoC rather than Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.
How to get pre-order pass if you aren't private member?
Head to Nothing's website and register yourself to obtain the pre-order pass. Ensure that the registered email ID on Nothing and Flipkart is the same. If and when you receive the invite code, head to Flipkart before June 30, enter the invite code and pay Rs. 2,000 refundable deposit to secure your place to buy the phone (1).
Deposit amount will get deducted from the final price
The purchase window will open at 9pm on July 12. Login to Flipkart and select the phone (1) variant you want. During checkout, the Rs. 2,000 deposit will be deducted from the final price. Notably, the order should be placed within seven days.
