Nothing has announced that the price of the Nothing Phone 1 in India will now start at Rs. 33,999 for the base 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant.
The price of the Nothing Phone 1 in India has been increased by Rs. 1,000 across all variants, the London-based company announced on Thursday. According to the company, the price increase is due to fluctuating currency exchange rates, among other things. Last month, the smartphone was released globally, including in India. It has a transparent back panel to aid the Glyph Interface, a 6.55-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC.
According to a communication from Nothing, the price of the Nothing Phone 1 in India will now begin at Rs. 33,999 for the base 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, Rs. 36,999 for the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant, and Rs. 39,999 for the top-of-the-line 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant. Notably, all variants will now be costlier by Rs. 1,000 than the launch price.
The company stated that the price change would be effective immediately. Nothing in its statement said, "A lot has happened since we originally began developing Phone (1), including economic factors like fluctuating currency exchange rates and rising component costs. We've had to change prices in response to the current climate."
