The new tech start-up Nothing is slated to launch its inaugural product, the ear (1) TWS buds, on July 27, 2021. However, it has chosen to share some details on the peripherals' charging case ahead of this event. Not that there is much to see here, as the accessory is largely transparent.

Carl Pei's new company Nothing had hinted that its first-gen TWS earbuds would incorporate material capable of showing their internals back when it was just teasing their launch. Now, the OEM has made it clear that this is the case.

To be more accurate, Nothing has affirmed that the charging cradle for these ear (1) buds will be mostly transparent, at least. Its latest teaser suggest that the corresponding TWS devices will have a form-factor somewhat along the lines of Sony's WF-1000XM4s.

It seems likely that they will snap into their case via magnetic contacts picked out in red. Pei has also reportedly revealed some important specs for this accessory: it will have a 570mAh capacity conferring up to 24 hours of use on the ear (1)s between charges.

It is also now patent that this can be done via USB type C, although the option of wireless charging is also here in these first-gen buds. Nothing's CEO has also reportedly noted that the these parts of the product will be transparent themselves in part.

Meanwhile, the Nothing ear (1)s have in fact already briefly gone on sale...sort of. Their listing on StockX for an exclusive lot of 100 serialized units has resulted in bids of up to €667 (~US$786), despite the fact the actual launch price of 'normal' editions have already been set at $99.

They will be revealed in full on a day already packed with debuts for new electronics: July 27, 2021. The OEM has announced it will unveil them on its own website in partnership with the YouTube channel UnboxTherapy at 15:00 CET on that day.

My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations.
