KUALA LUMPUR, July 26 ― If you’re still considering of getting the Nothing Phone (1), buyers in Malaysia can now get additional freebies and extra warranty protection if you pre-order before August 1, 2022. The offer was revealed via retailer DirectD as well as other participating outlets online.
According to DirectD, customers that pre-order the Nothing Phone (1) from July 25 to 31, 2022 will get to enjoy an exclusive pre-order giveaway which includes a 45W power adapter (RRP: RM139), a Phone (1) case (RRP: RM49) and a Phone (1) Screen Protector (RRP: RM69). On top of that, you also get 1 year extended warranty and half year screen crack warranty. This new promo is valid while stocks last.
From the looks of it, the white Nothing Phone (1) units have already sold out at most retailers so you’re only left with the black version with stocks expected to arrive on 1st August. If you still prefer to pre-order the white version from DirectD, they are accepting pre-orders for the second batch but you won’t get the extra freebies. The second batch of stocks are expected to arrive sometime between August 15 and 21.
The Nothing Phone (1) is a mid-range smartphone which features a unique Glyph lighting at the back. The device gets a 6.55″ Full HD+ OLED display which pushes 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. Under the hood, it gets a Snapdragon 778G+ processor that’s paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.
For taking pictures, the Phone (1) gets two 50MP cameras for wide and ultra-wide-angle shots, while the front gets a 16MP selfie camera that sits in a punch-hole on the top left corner of the screen. The Nothing Phone (1) is powered by a 4,500mAh battery which supports 33W fast wired charging via USB-C as well as 15W wireless charging.
Out of the box, it runs on Android 12 with Nothing OS interface on top and the company is promising three years of major Android OS updates and 4 years of security updates. Like most smartphone makers these days, you don’t get a charger or headphones in the box, and all you’ll get is just a USB-C cable and the phone.
