Nothing will launch its first smartphone, Phone (1), in Europe next week.
Nothing will launch its first smartphone, Phone (1), in Europe next week for 469 euros. The manufacturer has announced this. It is the second product from the new manufacturer, following earplugs last year.
Nothing wants to distinguish its phone with a few features. More than 900 LEDs on the back allow you to see the phone's charging status and read which app has sent a notification or who is calling without having to look at the screen. Nothing refers to it as the Glyph Interface.
The phone has a 6.55" OLED screen with a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ made by TSMC at 6nm. The + version of the soc differs from the regular one because one of the four Cortex A78 cores can go up to 2.5GHz instead of 2.4GHz. The soc in the regular version is also included in the recently presented Xiaomi 12 Lite.
The manufacturer wants to highlight two aspects of the Nothing OS software. Quick Setting enables the operation of a Tesla vehicle. This allows you to see how many kilometers the car can still drive on the remaining battery charge, as well as turn on the air conditioning and open the doors. Integration with other brand products is on the way, but no company has announced anything yet. There is also an NFT Gallery where users can view NFTs they own. This can also be done through a widget on the phone's home screen. To improve software performance, the phone runs infrequently used apps in the background, allowing frequently used apps to launch faster.
The phone includes a Sony IMX766 main camera with a resolution of 50 megapixels and an area of around 50mm2 with an optical size of 1/1.56". There is also a smaller camera with an ultra-wide angle lens: a Samsung JN1, with the same resolution of 50 megapixels but a sensor area of around 20mm2, the camera can focus at 4cm for macro photos.
The phone is 15.9x7.6cm in size, 8.3mm thick, and weighs 194g. The front and back of the device are made of tempered glass, with an aluminum side. It has been flattened and shaped to resemble an iPhone 12 or 13. The battery has a capacity of 4500mAh and can be charged with 33W wired charging, 15W wireless charging, and 5W wireless charging. Nothing guarantees three years of Android upgrades and four years of security updates every two months. The 8GB memory and 128GB storage variant costs 469 euros, while the 256GB storage variant costs 499 euros.
