Nothing phone (1) is finally official. The device comes with a distinct design, notably the glyph interface at the rear. It’s primarily the light strips serving a bunch of purposes. For instance, the one near the USB-C port is meant for indicating the battery status while the device is charging. Similarly, the one at the center indicates the device charging itself or other wirelessly. These strips also light up during incoming calls, notifications, video recordings, etc.
Now, without further ado, let’s take a detailed overview of the smartphone followed by its launch prices for a total of three memory variants.
Nothing phone (1)
Starting off with the display, the Nothing phone (1) carries a 6.55-inch OLED display with a 1,080 x 2,400 pixels resolution, 120Hz refresh rate at 10-bits, HDR10+, 20:9 aspect ratio, and a 1,200nits peak brightness. For protection, there is a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 layer at the top.
Running on Nothing OS on top of Android 12, the handset is powered by a Qualcomm SM7325-AE Snapdragon 778G+ 5G processor based on 6nm fabrication. It’s an octa-core chip with a 2.5GHz Cortex-A78 core, three 2.4GHz Cortex-A78 cores, and four 1.8GHz Cortex-A55 cores. An Adreno 642L GPU handles the graphics.
Paired up with the chipset is 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. You will miss the memory expansion though.
Moving on, there is a dual camera setup at the back including an f/1.9 50MP wide sensor with PDAF and OIS along with an f/2.2 50MP ultrawide snapper. The rear module supports LED flash, panorama, and HDR. At the front lies an f/2.5 16MP wide shooter for selfies.
For connectivity, Nothing phone (1) uses Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, and USB Type-C 2.0 with USB On-The-Go. While the sensors incorporated are an under-display optical fingerprint scanner, accelerometer, proximity, compass, and gyro.
A non-removable Li-Po 4,500mAh battery keeps the lights on. Thanks to 33W fast charging support, it can go from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes and 0 to 100% in 70 minutes as advertised. There is support for 15W wireless and 5W reverse wireless charging too, not to mention Power Delivery 3.0 and Quick Charge 4.0.
