You’ve probably heard about the Nothing Phone 1 (also known as the NF1) by now, but if you haven’t, here’s a little bit of background information to help get you started. The NF1 is the first phone released by the company Nothing and it doesn’t actually function at all. All of its features are fake and all of its apps are just there to make it look like your average smartphone, when in reality it does nothing at all, hence the name Nothing Phone 1. Anyway, on to the pre-booking details… Here are the Pre-Booking Details for the Nothing Phone 1
There will be 2 options: Android 6.0+ and iOS 8.1+
Table of Contents
These operating systems will be supported by default, and additional operating systems (Android 4.2 and iOS 7) can be added through an OTA update. If a user has an unsupported system they can order a phone that is already unlocked, or they can send their current phone in to us (for free) to have it unlocked. The price of unlocking will vary depending on your OS. Android 6.0+: The price of unlocking your OS will be $15 USD if you ordered your phone with Android 6.0+, or $25 USD if you sent your old phone in to get unlocked later on. The price difference is due to shipping costs, as we’ll need to ship out your new unlock key once we receive your old one back from you. iOS 8.1+: The price of unlocking your OS will be $25 USD if you ordered your phone with iOS 8+, or $35 USD if you sent your old phone in to get unlocked later on.
Price details leaked, though we do not know whether this is the final price
A Reddit user has leaked some details about pre-booking. From what we can gather, you will be able to get your hands on a Nothing Phone at a price of $9,990. That does not include tax and shipping. Apparently, more information is set to be released on Tuesday and that new information may contain full details. We will update as soon as more information becomes available.
Each device will come with a wristband (either red or white) in addition to the standard packaging
a charging case and a single set of headphones. The wristband will be used to identify you at various events throughout our summer tour—you’ll have to choose which wristband you’d like upon checkout, as we can’t guarantee there will be extra on site. And while they’re not built into your phone (seriously, it’s called Nothing), they still may be something of value… don’t want to spoil anything! There’s one more important piece of information: if you pre-order your device today and pick it up at our first stop in San Francisco, CA on July 15th, we’ll include an exclusive photo booklet with never before seen photos of our personal lives and professional growth since starting off as an experimental rock band five years ago.
All pre-orders come with two screen protectors and stickers, but different colors of each will be available
yellow, blue, red, and green. The first 200 pre-orders will also receive a limited edition necklace with a Nothing logo charm on it. It’s an add-on item so you’ll need to purchase one at checkout when your phone is being shipped out to you. If you don’t want it, that’s fine, but if you do and choose not to buy it then we can no longer guarantee that you’ll get one in your shipment box. They will be mailed separately from us and therefore won’t be counted as one of your items.
Shipping takes about 3 weeks after pre-order
It’s been a long time coming, but 3 weeks after you pre-order you can expect to get your hands on one of these smartphones. In most cases, it will arrive before Christmas. There is one exception: if you live in Brazil, Canada or Indonesia, you will have to wait until February next year due to shipping restrictions put in place by authorities there. If that’s not acceptable, we recommend contacting us at 1 (866) 663 7788 as soon as possible so we can reschedule your order and get it out before Christmas.
The company will also launch an accessory store sometime next year
Like we told you last week, Cúram Industries is readying its new line of Nothing phones. They’re super high tech and made with a nanomaterial that effectively renders them invisible. The first phone, dubbed simply Nothing Phone 1, will be available in early December, but it won’t be cheap: pre-orders start at $1,000 (which is almost twice as much as most smartphones) and goes up to $4,000 for more features.
