Carl Pei-led Nothing Technologies is scheduled to introduce the Nothing phone (1) in India on July 12.
Things we know about the phone
- The phone features an asymmetrical design on the back, along with a dual-camera setup, what looks like a wireless charging coil, and some metal plates that appear to cover various parts of the phone’s internals.
- Apart from confirming the use of an aluminium frame, the Nothing phone (1)’s initial design reveal has left almost nothing to the imagination.
- The Nothing phone (1) is scheduled to launch in India on July 12 at 8:30 pm. The company is expected to soon start accepting pre-bookings for the device. Interested buyers will be able to book the device by paying ₹2,000.
- The Nothing phone (1) is expected to run on Android 12 out of the box with the company’s custom skin on top.
- It is expected to feature a 6.55-inch OLED display with a 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution, HDR10+ support and a 90Hz resolution. It is expected to feature minimal side bezels and a small chin.
The device is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset coupled with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
The device is expected to feature a dual camera setup at the back and a 32MP selfie camera.
The device is expected to be powered by a 4,500mAh battery with fast charge support. It is expected to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor and offer a Type-C port for audio and charging.
- The design of the Nothing phone (1) has also offered more insight on what the phone’s hardware will not offer. One such element is the missing 3.5mm headphone jack. It seems that in favour of offering a better ecosystem for wireless audio products from other brands, Nothing will not be looking at native support for wired earphones and headphones.
- The design also reveals that the Nothing phone (1) comes with a dual camera setup on the back, which actually is good news, even though it may not seem like it.
- The Nothing phone (1) will apparently be following the opposite-side button pattern, where the power button and the volume rocker buttons are actually placed on opposite sides.
- The Nothing phone (1) is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 700-series chipset, although this has not yet been confirmed.
