Nothing Phone 1 price in India has been increased by Rs. 1,000 across all its variants, the London-based company announced on Thursday. The company says that the increase in the price of the smartphone is due to the fluctuating currency exchange rates, among other reasons. The smartphone was launched globally, including India, last month. It comes with a transparent back panel to aid the Glyph Interface that uses LED strips, a 6.55-inch OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC.
As per a communication received from Nothing, the Nothing Phone 1 price in India will now start from Rs. 33,999 for the base 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, Rs. 36,999 for the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage version, and Rs. 39,999 for the top-of-the-line 12GB RAM + 256GB storage option. Notably, all the variants will now be Rs. 1,000 costlier from the launch price.
While the company mentioned that the price change will be effective from today, at the time of writing this report, we could see the Nothing Phone 1 listed with older prices on Flipkart. We assume that the price change should reflect soon.
“Plenty has changed since we started building Phone (1), including economic factors such as fluctuating currency exchange rates and rising component costs. In response to the current climate, we've had to make a change to our prices,” Nothing said in a statement.
