In a month, on July 12, the OnePlus ex-founder will announce their first phone under the Nothing smartphone brand. The Nothing Phone (1) is going to be an Android smartphone at an affordable price and quite acceptable performance. Taking into consideration that the OnePlus performs quite well in the field, there is every reason to think that this model will also perform well. As for today, we learned that the first device of the Nothing company will be produced locally in India.
"We are thrilled to announce that every phone (1) sold in India will be manufactured locally," Manu Sharma (@buildingnothing), VP and GM of @nothing India. @getpeid #nothingphone #nothing #phone1 https://t.co/pSnIdknpA3

Well, it seems that not all units will be manufactured in India but only those that will be sold in this market. Particularly, we learned that the Nothing Phone (1) sold in India will be produced in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The information comes from Nothing VP and General Manager Manu Sharma, who shared the information with the Economic Times.
Manu said the Nothing Phone (1) is the “real” start of the brand’s journey, and it made sense for Nothing to manufacture the Nothing Phone (1) locally, given the importance of the Indian market to the brand. He further confirmed that Nothing has expanded its customer support in India to over 270 authorized service centers in over 250 cities across the country, thereby increasing consumer trust.
In addition, whistleblower Mukul Sharma revealed that production of the phone has reportedly started at a factory in Tamil Nadu. However, many parts will be imported, including the batteries from China.
The Nothing Phone (1) is going to sport a 6.55-inch FHD+ OLED screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 processor, which is considered to be a mid-range chip with quite good performance. There will also be a 50-megapixel main camera on the rear. Possibly, the battery capacity will be 4500mAh and it is going to support a 45W fast charging via a USB Type-C port.
