What you need to know

  • The first 100 units of the Nothing phone (1) will be available for auction ahead of launch.
  • Nothing has partnered with StockX to auction off the phone.
  • Each unit will be serialized 1 to 100 and matched to the corresponding winning bid.

Last year, Nothing devised a unique way to build hype for its first product: auctioning off the Nothing ear (1). The tech startup founded by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei wants to do the same for its first smartphone.

The first 100 units of the Nothing phone (1) will be auctioned off on June 21, just a few weeks prior to its official unveiling. To conduct the auction, Nothing has teamed up with StockX, the same online marketplace it partnered with for the ear (1)’s auction last year.
