Nothing is finely orchestrating the dripping of details about the upcoming Phone 1. After all, it has Carl Pei at the helm of things. The ex-OnePlus co-founder’s new company is set to unveil the Nothing Phone (1) on July 12. We also know the phone will be sold on Flipkart, an Indian-born eCommerce company. Now the company has also revealed that the handset will be manufactured in the state of Tamil Nadu in India. So, it seems to be going all out to appease Indians.
“We are thrilled to announce that every phone (1) sold in India will be manufactured locally,” said Nothing India vice president and general manager Manu Sharma.
