Nothing Phone (1) is Now Official With Competitive Specs

After a bunch of leaks, the Nothing Phone (1) is finally official! Held at an event in London, the Nothing Phone (1) is a competitive smartphone in the sub-$500 range. Here’s what it got in detail;

Nothing Phone (1) Specifications

Starting up with the display, the all-new Nothing Phone (1) has a 6.55″ OLED panel with 1080 × 2400p resolution, supporting 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and 1200 nits of peak brightness. With a recycled aluminum frame and Gorilla Glass 5 protecting the display, it has symmetrical bezels on all four sides.

Under the hood, it’s got a Snapdragon 778G+ chipset, and dual cameras on the back – with the primary one as 50MP (f/1.88) Sony IMX766 1/1.56″ sensor, and the second one being a 50MP (f/2.2) Samsung JN1 1/2.76″ ultrawide sensor with a 114° field-of-view. Upfront, there’s a 16MP Sony IMX471 selfie shooter in the punch-hole design.

It’s got a 4,500 mAh battery with 33W fast wired charging (juicing the battery to complete in 70 minutes), 15W wireless charging, and a 5W reverse wireless charging. Nothing follows the suit of Apple in not packing an adaptor in the box and selling it separately for €35 / £35 – for the 45W model.

It runs on Android 12-based Nothing OS (1), which the company says isn’t much of bloatware. It comes with only Android apps by default and promises three years of Android updates and four years of security patches every two months.

Well, the most unique feature of Nothing Phone (1), also could be the USP – is the transparency on the back with “Glyph interface” LEDs. These are placed right next to functional areas of the phone, so they show off when needed.

For example, these lights can act as progress indicators when charging, camera lights, and even sync with the built-in ringtones. We shall see more in the coming days. This new phone comes in three storage variants, and is priced as below;

  • 8GB + 128GB for €469 / £399 / INR 32,999
  • 8GB + 256GB for €499 / £449 / INR 35,999
  • 12GB + 256GB for €549 / £499 / INR 38,999 (arrives later than the other two.)

Sadly, the Nothing Phone (1) isn’t coming to the US but will be available in the UK, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Macau, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, and UAE.

It’ll first show up at a Nothing pop-up kiosk in Covent Garden in London, on July 16 at 10 AM local time, and will be available there for five days. Also, it’ll be sold through partner retailers in limited stocks starting July 18, followed by the first official sale on July 21 via the Nothing website and at partners globally.
