Rakesh Krishnan, Senior Director, Electronics at Flipkart, said: “India is one of the fastest-growing audio devices markets in the world and is expanding rapidly on the back of the work from home culture and customers seeking high-performance devices to suit their evolving needs. In this endeavour, Flipkart is at the forefront of meeting the needs of Indian customers and delivering best-in-class technology across the country and we are happy to be Nothing’s partner of choice for their India foray and introduce Nothing Ear 1 this summer.”

Nothing had revealed a concept render of a TWS earbud. It has a transparent design and appeared to be shorter than most TWS earbuds. We expect features like Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), aptX, low-latency mode, and more. It isn’t clear whether Nothing is aiming to hit the affordable price point or go the premium route like Apple. There is no word yet on the Nothing Ear 1 launch date, but the company teased the TWS earbuds would arrive in June. With just a few days to go before June ends, we may hear something about the launch event soon.
