Japan gets nothing, while the US still gets nothing

The Nothing Phone 1 was launched last month and the reception, for the most part, has been positive. The phone is available for purchase in Europe, UK and also parts of Asia. Starting next month, Nothing will expand to Japan, as the handset will be available for pre-order and purchase from August.

Today, Nothing Japan’s Twitter account posted the launch dates for the upcoming Phone 1. Reservations for the handset will begin on August 10. Just over a week later, on August 19, the phone will go on sale. At first glance, it might not seem like much, but the rollout is quite impressive, as some of the biggest electronics stores will carry it like Yodobashi, Yamada, and Bic Camera. If that wasn’t enough, the device will also be available online through Amazon Japan. Currently, prices have not been made available.

Launch of Nothing Phone 1 in Japan

This will be the first time Nothing Phone 1 will be available through standard retail channels in Japan. Nothing held a special event around the beginning of August in Kith Tokyo. Kith is a popular clothing brand that was launched in the United States. At the event, Nothing sold the 8GB RAM version with 256GB of internal phone storage in black and white. Although this was its first phone launch in the country, Nothing had a presence in the country as it offered its wireless headphones, the Ear 1, through various retail channels.

While this is good news for those in Japan, one has to wonder when Nothing will make the phone available for those in the US and Canada. There is no indication that they aim to launch in both regions in the future. But, for now, it will focus on domestic markets where ties with local carriers are strong.
