Nothing Phone (1) has been launched globally. It has been surely one of the most hyped phones of all time. Here’s a little background on the Phone (1). Nothing held a virtual event in March in which they revealed their plans about launching the Phone (1). They made it clear that they were not an audio company. Moreover, Carl Pei revealed that their vision was to create an ecosystem of products to go against Apple.
He admitted that no other brand offered the same seamless integration as Apple. Nothing aims to change that and bring a cohesive and seamless ecosystem of products. The ecosystem will not be limited to Nothing’s products. Rather, they have partnered with other brands for better and seamless integration with their products.
Now that the Phone (1) has been announced officially, let’s figure does it live up to the hype or not.
The design was officially unveiled weeks ago. The device also comes in black color. Moreover, the packaging is also minimal. It doesn’t have a charger as well. So, that’s not revolutionary. There is a glyph interface on the back as well. This is the main highlight of the design apart from its transparent look. It works as a notification indicator, battery charging indicator, wireless charging indicator, and lights up for patterns for ringtones as well. Lastly, another notable thing is the symmetrical bezel all the way around.
Nothing Phone (1) is powered by the Snapdragon 778G+. Moreover, the display is a 6.55″ 120Hz flexible OLED panel. Bezels are symmetrical and the punch-hole is towards the top left. The display also houses an in-display fingerprint scanner. It weighs 194g and measures 8.3mm thick. The phone packs a 4500 mAh battery which will charge at a maximum of 33W. In addition, the device supports 15W wireless and 5W reverse wireless charging as well.
The device runs on Android 12-based Nothing OS. Moreover, it will get 3 years of major Android updates as well. Moving on to the camera system, the device has a 50MP main IMX766 sensor with OIS and EIS. It is accompanied by a 50MP ultra-wide sensor as well. The front selfie shooter is a 16MP lens.
