Nothing Return to Instinct Event: What to expect?
While we already know a lot about the Phone 1, Nothing says that it has a lot of exciting details to share at the event. At the "Return to Instinct" event today, we expect the company to release full details about the smartphone's specs, camera, price, and software. Carl Pei first showcased Nothing OS at the Phone 1's announcement event, but we haven't heard a lot about it since then. We expect the company's executives to talk about Nothing OS at length during the event.
The company is also expected to share the Phone (1)'s availability details at the event. Nothing has already revealed that the Phone 1 won't be available in the US. And the regions it will be available in, it will only be purchasable via invitations. Those who are looking to buy the Nothing Phone (1) should know that you will need a pre-order pass to purchase the Phone (1). You can check out the company's official website to know more about the pre-order pass and the process to purchase the Phone (1).
Lastly, Nothing could also do a surprise reveal at the "Return to Instinct" event. Some leakers believe that the company could debut "Nothing Ear (1) Stick" at the event. The new TWS earphones from Nothing would keep a similar form factor as the currently available Nothing Ear (1), but come without silicone ear tips like the standard AirPods. Due to the lack of silicone ear tips, Active Noise Cancellation could be missing on the Nothing Ear (1) Stick variant. The earphones could be priced around EUR 99 and come in a new, compact casing.
