After Carl Pei departed from OnePlus, he eventually unveiled the name of his new company: Nothing.
The company with the amusing moniker rapidly launched a famous pair of true-wireless earphones dubbed Nothing Ear 1. The business is preparing to introduce its second physical product, the Nothing Phone 1, in 2022.
This article will run you through a few features we hope to see when the phone arrives.
When Can We Expect It?
Nothing finally announced a launching date on June 8, 2022, following months of teasing. The Nothing Phone 1 will be released on July 12, 2022, with a “Return to Instinct” event at 11:00 a.m. ET that day.
The firm didn’t give any further release specifics, but we think that the product will be available for purchase soon after the launch event.
If you live in the United States, don’t expect to get your hands on the phone immediately, if at all. According to the business, Phone 1 will not be released in the United States.
Do We Have Features and Specs Yet?
Nothing has revealed many facts regarding the Phone 1’s design. However, the corporation is still keeping its hardware specifications under wraps.
Expect the corporation to continue the hype machine until the phone’s release date. But, in the meanwhile, here’s what we do know.
How Would the Design Look Like? The agent
Nothing’s initial smartphone was expected to have the transparent housing of the Nothing Ear 1 earphones from the start. Nothing verified this on May 24.
Later that day, on June 21, hands-on footage of the Nothing Phone 1 Messages that we have asked for my hopesrevealing its design was released. The business also displayed several promotional photographs of the phone, which can be found on this website.
The LEDs on the rear of the Phone 1—known as the “Glyph”—may light up in various patterns and sync with certain sounds. They pulse in response to incoming calls, texts, app notifications, reverse wireless charging, and other events.
Nothing indicates that it will also enable users to create additional unique effects. This is bound to make for exciting designs for smartphone cases.
Chipset and OS
On June 29, we revealed that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G Plus processor would power the Nothing Phone 1. This mid-range chipset will not be as powerful as a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or even the Snapdragon 888 from last year. However, the chipset will offer wireless and reverse wireless charging, which is a plus, especially if you like the convenience of wireless charging over USB-C chargers.
We also know that the phone will run an Android overlay called Nothing OS. In a sneak preview, nothing OS has previously been seen running on a Samsung phone.
Nothing has stated that the Nothing Phone 1 will receive three Android updates and four years of security fixes.
What about the Camera?
The smartphone will sport a dual back camera system, but no further specifics have been revealed. We hope this indicates the phone has a primary and secondary camera that is either telephoto or ultrawide.
According to several speculations, the Phone 1 might contain 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. It also includes a 120Hz refresh rate on display, a 4,500mAh battery that charges at 45W via cable, and a 16MP front camera. It might have a 50MP primary lens and a 16MP ultra-wide lens on the rear. Once again, none of these specifications has been confirmed.
As we approach its scheduled release on July 12, 2022, much speculation exists about the Nothing Phone 1. This truly is one of the most hyped phone launches we have had in a while.
