Nothing phone 1 is suggested to be initially available via a pre-order pass


Nothing Phone 1 India’s pre-order details appeared briefly on Flipkart on Thursday night. It turns out that the phone was available for pre-orders through a dedicated pre-order pass that would be available at a refundable price. The pre-order pass appears to be working as an invitation to get the Nothing Phone 1 shortly after its official launch next month. Customers who pre-order the phone will also be entitled to receive additional benefits and offers, including a phone 1 accessory at a discounted price.

As reported by tipster Mukul Sharma, Flipkart briefly carried a list containing the Nothing Phone 1 pre-order pass in India.

Although the listing was not available at the time of submission of this article, Sharma shared some of his screenshots to suggest the development. The screenshots indicate that the Nothing Phone 1 pre-order pass will be available with a refundable deposit of Rs. 2,000. Customers who buy the pass will be able to pre-order the phone via Flipkart.

“This pass guarantees that you will be able to pre-order phone (1), but this is not the actual order itself. Think of it as holding your place,” the offer allegedly said while describing the purpose of the pre-order pass.

Once the refundable amount has been deposited, Flipkart will email the invitation code to customers to pre-order the phone. The pass will also offer access to some exclusive pre-order offers as well as a discounted price of a phone 1 accessory that may be a case in point.

Customers who have the pre-order pass will be able to buy the Nothing Phone 1 from Flipkart on its launch date – at 21:00 on 12 July. The Rs. 2,000 deposit for the pass will be deducted from the final price, according to the details available on one of the screenshots.

Flipkart will apparently also have exchange offers and no-cost EMI on the Nothing Phone 1.

Earlier this week, Nothing itself revealed that the expected Phone 1 will initially be available through an invitation system. This will help the company to understand the demand for the phone as well as to create its hype in the market.

Nothing’s CEO and co-founder, Carl Pei, has previously used the tactic of attracting customers through invitations during his previous tenure at OnePlus. The Chinese company sold its initial models, including the OnePlus One, through an invitation mechanism that helped it become popular.

That said, exact details about the invitation system have yet to be released.
