Nothing, the initiative of former OnePlus founder Carl Pei, introduced its first smartphone: Nothing Phone(1). It is particularly eye-catching due to the transparent back with the iconic white LED lighting.

Nothing introduced its first product last year: Nothing Ear(1). These wireless headphones stood out with their transparent design and excellent value for money. It was also expected that nothing would come with a smartphone: Carl Pei has already done that at OnePlus.

The first smartphone of nothing continues the transparent design of the Ear(1). The back is transparent and designed in such a way that you can get an idea about the pieces without looking messy. This rear also has white LED lights that can notify you when you receive a call or notification, or with special patterns to let you know about the charging status. It is also a non-thin light in the dark or to support taking photos and videos.

The back is made of glass, a delicate material. To safely implement LED lights (Nothing calls the “Glyph interface”), you need a clear cover. Besides the transparent back, the Nothing Phone(1) looks a bit like the iPhone 13 thanks to its flat metal edge and placement of the cameras.

The Nothing Phone (1) has midrange specs and a few notable ones. A Snapdragon 778G+ chipset with 8 or 12GB of RAM is plenty and can connect to 5G, but it’s not the most powerful chipset in Qualcomm’s stable.

Also, the smartphone has a 6.55-inch OLED display (Full-HD and dynamic refresh rate up to 120 hertz), two 50-megapixel cameras (regular lens and wide-angle lens), 128 or 256 GB of non-expandable storage memory. and a battery capacity of 4,500 mAh. You can charge this battery wirelessly or via USB-C (fast). An adapter must be purchased separately if desired.

The smartphone runs on Android 12 with its own Nothing OS layer on top. On the surface, this shell seems to change little on the Android base. Unfortunately, update support is a bit sparse: three years of Android version updates and four years of security updates.

Nothing Phone(1) is available in black and white. You can also choose between 8GB ram with 128GB storage (469 Euro), 256GB storage (499 Euro) with 8GB ram, or 256GB storage with 12GB ram (549 Euro).
