Nothing Company's first-ever smartphone will be manufactured in India

On Monday, London-based consumer electronics company Nothing announced that it would produce its first smartphone, phone (1), in India.

The company said the smartphone would be manufactured at a facility in Tamil Nadu.

"We are thrilled to announce that every phone (1) sold in India will be manufactured locally," said Manu Sharma, VP and GM of Nothing India.

"Nothing phone (1) is the real start of our journey, and we cannot think of a better way to establish ourselves in India, which is a key market for us," he added.

Nothing phone (1) will be sold via Flipkart. The company is reportedly launching the device with a transparent design on July 21.

A recent tweet by Nothing CEO and Co-founder Carl Pei suggested that the device may arrive with support for wireless charging.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon mobile platform will power the upcoming smartphone. It is said to be the company's first smartphone and a second device in the overall product ecosystem of the brand.

The device will come preinstalled with the Nothing OS. The device will be treated with three years of OS upgrades and four years of security updates.

For the upcoming Nothing phone (1), the company is expanding its customer support in the region to 270 authorised service centres in more than 250 cities and year-round support via the Nothing India channels.
