One of the most awaited smartphones in the market right now is “Nothing Phone 1”. So far, the Nothing Phone 1 launch will take place next month. The full Nothing Phone 1 Design was recently revealed by the London-based startup. While the official specifications and features of Nothing Phone 1 are still not out, according to the sources, here are the 10 things to know about the much-awaited Nothing Phone 1-
- Amazing Semi-Transparent Design
The Nothing phone features an extraordinary transparent back design. You can literally see the internal structure and visual elements of the phone. We had already seen the exceptional Nothing Earbuds transparent design. The Nothing Phone 1 Design has metal plates covering the exposed components. This gives back a clean look to the phone.
- Flat Metallic Sides and Buttons
The Nothing phone 1 will come with sleek metallic sides and flat edges. Many say it is pretty similar to the new iPhone 13 series. Overall, Nothing Smart Phone 1 design got mixed reviews. Where many say the design is very fresh and uncommon, while others say the design is too naked and raw.
- Illuminating Back Panel
Back in March 2022, Carl Pei revealed strange symbols about the phone. A few include curves and a set of lines forming an illuminating back design of Nothing Phone 1. The illuminating lines are available around the camera portion. It is also specified that the wireless charging area can be used for alert notifications. But is not yet official.
- Sorry, No 3.5mm Jack
Unfortunately, the Nothing phone 1 Design will lack some of the hardware requirements. One such element is a 3.5mm headphone jack. Nothing is smart enough to go ‘No Jack’, so users may buy its much-successful Nothing Buds earphones or any preferred brand.
- Unfortunately, No Alert Slider
When Carl Pei left OnePlus and formed his own company, users were expecting to have a useful Alert Slider button. One Plus users were very happy to have the alert slider button, which allows them to easily switch between ring and silent mode, followed by DND. Unfortunately, that utility is missing on Nothing Phone 1.
- A Common Dual-Camera Setup (Back)
The Nothing Phone 1 leaked images show a dual-camera setup on the back. The smartphone is already expected to be a mid-ranger and not a flagship phone. Though we are expecting decent camera sensors for day-to-day photography. We are waiting for a Nothing Phone 1 Launch soon to have a proper camera review. The dual-camera setup on Nothing Smart Phone 1 looks cleaner, thanks to its semi-transparent design.
- Wireless Charging Option
The exceptional back design of Nothing Phone 1 is not just transparent but also features wireless charging. The charging area is central circular-shaped like a coil. It is finally confirmed that the coil is meant for wireless charging. We have already witnessed that the wireless charging feature mostly comes in flagship phones, but if we say Nothing Phone 1 is a mid-range smartphone that comes with wireless charging support, then it is fantastic news.
- Power Button & Volume Rockers On Opposite Sides
“OPPOSITE ATTRACTS”! We think Nothing has taken this statement too seriously. That’s why Nothing Phone 1 will feature power button and volume buttons on opposite sides of the phone. Though you may find it easier to use multiple buttons to take screenshots or enter into the phone’s bootloader.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 700-series Chip
Sources say the Nothing phone 1 will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 700-series Chipset, the news is not yet official. We already know that the Nothing Smart Phone will be powered by a Qualcomm chip. The chipset will be likely the new Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC. More specification details may get revealed by July 12 launch.
- NothingOS, Powered by Android 12
The much-hyped Nothing phone 1 will run on Android 12 along with Nothing’s own operating system NothingOS out of the box. The same was revealed by Carl Pei in March. The NothingOS will be offering a unique combination of aesthetics and productivity. The phone will also have Nothing Launcher, already available on the Play Store.
Nothing Phone 1 release date is July 12 (expected as of now). As the company will make a debut in the market full of smartphone competition, let’s see how can this phone be a game changer!
