Nothing Phone, the latest phone from tech giant Asus, has bagged the BIS certification hinting at an imminent launch in India
Asus is the latest phone maker to unveil a device with BIS certification, hinting at an imminent launch in India.
The handset called the Nothing Phone, has managed to bag the certification from the telecom regulator.
The certification indicates that the device meets certain security and performance norms.
Interestingly, Asus has not yet revealed much about the Nothing Phone. However, given its close proximity to the global launch of Apple’s iPhone 8/8 Plus, it is likely that this phone will be targeted at budget conscious users.
It is worth noting that Asus also unveiled a new ZenFone 3S Max variant earlier this year, which could be considered as a competitor to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
Given that Asus is one of India’s largest tech companies, it is expected that the Nothing Phone will soon hit Indian markets.
In fact, given its recent unveiling and certification by BIS, it is highly likely that it will be launched soon.
The phone is a successor to the Asus ZenFone 2 and features a 6-inch Full HD display, a powerful Snapdragon 821 processor, and up to 8GB of RAM
Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe: The phone is a successor to the Asus ZenFone 2 and features a 6-inch Full HD display, a powerful Snapdragon 821 processor, and up to 8GB of RAM.
It also comes with a vapor chamber cooling system that helps dissipate heat evenly so that the phone stays cool even while performing intensive tasks.
Furthermore, it has a dual camera setup on the back with 13MP sensors and 5MP depth cameras for improved photographic quality. In terms of connectivity, it supports both LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.
Apart from India, the phone is expected to hit other Southeast Asian markets such as Indonesia and the Philippines in the coming weeks
The latest bit of news to come out of the Indian smartphone market is that a purported “Nothing” phone has been certified by the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) which, according to some rumors, could mean that the phone is imminent in India.
The Nothing phone has allegedly passed all the certification requirements, which include FCC and ETSI approvals, hinting at a launch in India within the next few weeks.
Although specifications for the Nothing phone have not yet been released, it is expected to feature a low-cost design with an unconventional user interface.
It is also rumored to feature only 4GB of internal storage and no rear-mounted camera. Other speculated features include a lack of a Home button and a virtual assistant built into the operating system.
Despite not being officially announced, there are numerous reports circulating online suggesting that the Nothing phone is indeed real and set to launch in India soon.
If true, this would be another example of how Indian manufacturers are continuing to challenge established players in the global smartphone market.
Pricing and availability
TheNothingPhone, a purported Android phone that has not yet been released, has allegedly secured certification from the BIS (British Information Services Agency), hinting at an imminent launch in India.
The NothingPhone was first spotted on Geekbench running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and is said to have a 5-inch HD display and 1GB RAM.
The Nothing phone, a purported Android-powered device that has been tipped for an imminent launch in India, has failed to bag any certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), hinting at its unavailability in the country.
The unreleased smartphone was expected to feature a 5.5-inch display, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage and run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
However, the Nothing phone failed to achieve certification from BIS a mandatory step for any device looking to be sold in India indicating that it is not yet ready for commercial release.
The news comes as no surprise given that the Nothing phone was first reported by Gadgets 360 last month and has been met with skepticism by many since then.
Although there is no confirmation regarding when or where the Nothing phone will finally be available, India appears unlikely to be its final destination due to regulatory hurdles associated with its release there.
The phone is also reported to feature a 13MP rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, 4GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot. There has yet to be any confirmation of the NothingPhone’s launch in India, but with its BIS certification and rumored specs, it is certainly worth keeping an eye on!
