Nothing Phone 1 specifications (expected)
Earlier, Founder of Nothing had confirmed that the Phone 1 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC. Additionally, the smartphone will reportedly feature a 50-megapixel dual rear camera setup. It can sport a 6.55-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The front and back panel of the Nothing Phone 1 is said to be protected by Gorilla glass. It could also run Android 12 out-of-the-box.
The most important specification of the Nothing Phone 1 is its LED notification system that is powered by the company’s Glyph interface. The smartphone will feature an LED setup at the rear that will light up when a user receives a notification alert or call. Users can also assign different light alert patterns for different contacts. The LED setup at the back will also reflect the battery percentage of the smartphone when it is plugged in.
Nothing had recently confirmed via TikTok that the Phone 1 will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Recently, in a video shared by reviewer Gaurav Chaudhary aka Technical Guruji, the first looks of the retail box were revealed, which indicated that the company might not provide a charging adapter with the phone in the box.
