Former OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has been creating hype for his Nothing brand for quite some time now. The company has teased its very first product, the Nothing Ear 1, on several occasions. Very little is known about the specifics of the TWS earbuds except that it will be transparent. Now, Nothing has formally sent out invites for the Nothing Ear 1 launch date, which is July 27 at 2:00 PM BST (6:30 PM IST). Fortunately, we can buy the Nothing Ear 1 at the same time as everyone else, as discovered by a recent Flipkart teaser.

Initially, nothing was expected to launch the Nothing Ear 1 TWS earbuds in June 2021. The delayed launch comes as no surprise. The global shortage of semiconductors has indirectly caused other secondary peripherals to run out of stock, leaving nothing to delay the launch of the TWS earbuds. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though, as it wouldn’t give anything more time to get its very first product photo perfect for the market and even give it a little more time to make the launch memorable.
With Carl Pei at the helm, we can expect nothing OnePlus-esque market-disrupting shenanigans to deliver. Furthermore, Nothing is a new company in a market flooded with TWS earbuds, so it needs to stand out from the crowd. While it’s hard to predict exactly what the Nothing Ear 1 will offer in terms of specs, we can expect it to come with high-end features like support for Qualcomm’s aptX codec, ANC, ENC, a low-latency mode for gamers, and the likes.
