Nothing phone (1)

this discovery confirms an imminent launch

Nothing’s first smartphone, dubbed phone (1), is getting closer if we believe this new information. It has just been certified in India by the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) and should benefit from an international launch.

After leaving OnePlus in 2020, Carl Pei is preparing his return to the smartphone market. Launched in a new opening called Nothing, it distils information about the phone (1) in dribs and drabs. The ear headphones (1) are just the beginning for the young brand, which timidly mentioned its future product at the start of the year. Nothing hopes to bring a breath of fresh air to this segment and has many partners.

The phone (1) will be able to count on the Qualcomm support for its Snapdragon processor. Samsung should take care of the screen while sony would focus on photo sensors. Classic partners who have all proven themselves, but Nothing did not expand on the hardware equipment. We also know that the device will rely on a “Pure Android experience” with the Nothing OS interface.

The MySmartPrice site and leaker Mukul Sharma spotted the phone (1) in BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification documents. The model number A063 refers to the Nothing smartphone, which tends to confirm that it is getting closer to its release. More than a revelation, it’s a confirmation since Carl Pei has already announced a release this summer. The manufacturer does not seem not late and should indeed launch its first phone between June and September.

For his part, Mukul Sharma even goes so far as to indicate that the phone (1) enters “in its final phase of internal testing” in India. In addition to Europe, the smartphone will be available in the Indian market. The young brand has also specified that it has tied distribution partnerships with certain operators or companies, including O2 (Great Britain), Telekom Deutschland (Germany) and Flipkart (India).

Nothing phone (1): what should we expect from these characteristics?

The first leaks report the presence of a 6.43-inch AMOLED screen displaying in Full HD+. It would benefit from a refresh rate of 90Hz and would embed a chip Snapdragon 778G. This SoC for mid-range Android smartphones must offer compatibility 5G.

On the photo side, we expect to find a triple camera on the back of the device. A main sensor 50 megapixels would lead the dance, supported by 8 and 2 megapixel modules. The front of the smartphone would house a 32-megapixel front camera. Finally, a 4500mAh battery would be responsible for feeding this configuration. On paper, Nothing would therefore not target the high-end segment.

On several occasions, the brand has indicated that it wants to distinguish itself through the user experience. It also makes sense to start making a name for yourself with a more accessible model, before moving on.
