Some smartphone brands have decided that it’s fun to slowly tease their upcoming devices over the course of many months, but the Nothing Phone (1) could be a case where that backfires. While the new Android phone isn’t expected to debut for several weeks, a new tease has suggested it will be difficult to buy in the US.

Nothing listed your debut smartphone on DropX (opens in new tab)which basically means you can bid on one of the first hundred models made – why you would want to spend hard-earned cash on a smartphone you’ve never seen is totally beyond us (especially when the highest bids are now $1,500 in the US and £1,100 in the UK – far more than the phone is likely to cost).
