To recall, the Nothing Ear 1 price in India starts at ₹5,999 and they are sold in India only via Flipkart. The launch offer included a ₹500 instant discount for ICICI Bank Credit Card users and a free 6-month Gaana Plus subscription.
With the 4800 units being sold out, Nothing managed to draw a total amount of ₹2.8 crores as revenue from the first sale. As of now, the next sale date of the Nothing Ear 1 hasn’t been announced yet. Customers who pre-ordered the earbuds will receive their orders by September 1, 2021. That’s quite a long wait, we would say.
