Second product in the Nothing ecosystem expected to expand in the coming months, the phone (1) arrives a little less than a year after Ear (1), its first headphones genuine wireless. The smartphone intends to perform just as well as the headset, none of which in March last year has delivered more than 400,000 devices.

To do this, the young brand depends on design and value for money. We already know the look of the device, whose appearance is reminiscent of an iPhone seen from the front, with lightweight aluminum edges, and which embeds about 900 LEDs hidden behind a glass back. Their ignition, associated with messages, can be configured according to the source of the warnings. What may seem like a gimmick is a technical challenge, as this option has defined the integration of components in the smartphone.

A nice mid-range specification sheet

Precisely technically, the frills associated with the design give way to choices that are completely rational. Nothing chose a 6.55-inch OLED screen (1,800 x 2,400 pixels), with a refresh rate of 60 to 120 Hz. This panel is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Under its hood we find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chip from last year, with 8 to 12 GB of RAM. SoC is marked with the “+” mark, which indicates the compatibility of the phone with wireless charging, an option not available with the standard 778G; that is, nothing tells us, a version of SoC that is exclusive to it.

Like many smartphones at the moment, the phone (1) has a 4,500 mAh battery. It is compatible with wired charging at 33 W, while going to 15 W in wireless and 5 W in reverse wireless charging.

In the photography department, Nothing again aims for efficiency. Two modules are therefore revealed on the back of the device. The first, with its wide angle (f / 1.88), is based on a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor. The other, signed Samsung (Isocell GN1), also shows 50 megapixels on the counter and benefits from ultra wide angle optics.

Let’s finish with the software aspect of this phone (1). It runs on Android 12 clad in the Nothing OS interface and will benefit, the manufacturer promises, from three years of major system updates and four years of security upgrades.

Price and release date

The phone (1), a mid-range smartphone in technical terms and more premium in terms of design, has an introductory price of € 469 in the 8/128 GB version, available from 21 July. Its price rises to € 499 in the 8/256 GB configuration and to € 549 for the 12/256 GB variant, which will be marketed a little later. With confidence in its product, the brand hopes to sell a trifle of 700,000 units … and continue its journey in the mobile market with other models.
