Here's our first look at Nothing Ear 1's 'transparent' charging case

The Ear 1's transparent charging case will come equipped with a large 570mAh battery.

What you need to know

  • Nothing CEO Carl Pei has revealed new info about the company's upcoming Ear 1 true wireless earbuds in a new interview.
  • The earbuds will offer up to 24 hours of continuous playback with active noise cancellation enabled.
  • Like the earbuds themselves, the Ear 1 charging case will also be almost completely transparent.

Carl Pei's Nothing will finally announce its first product next week. Ahead of the big launch, Carl Pei has shared some new details about the upcoming Ear 1 wireless earbuds in an interview with CNET.

Pei told the publication that the Ear 1 will deliver up to 24 hours of battery life with active noise cancellation enabled and 36 hours with ANC turned off. The charging case will pack a 570mAh battery with support for wireless charging and fast charging. Users will be able to get up to six hours of usage (with ANC on) with just ten minutes of in-case charging. For reference, Samsung's Galaxy Buds Pro, which are among the best wireless earbuds on the market right now, deliver up to 20 hours of battery life with active noise cancellation and 28 hours with ANC off.

However, Nothing isn't planning to challenge premium wireless earbuds from Samsung and Apple with the Ear 1. Instead, the earbuds will rival budget-focused wireless earbuds such as Google's Pixel Buds A.

The CNET report also includes images of the Ear 1's charging case, which is almost completely transparent. While no images of the earbuds have surfaced yet, they are also expected to have a similar transparent design. Nothing has collaborated with Swedish consumer electronics brand Teenage Engineering to design the Ear 1.

The earbuds are set to be unveiled at a virtual launch event on July 27. Aside from North America and India, the Ear 1 will also be launched in Europe and the UK. While the Ear 1 will cost $99 in the U.S., they will be available for ₹5,999 in India.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
