Nothing Phone (1) is now official

London tech consumer brand Nothing finally makes the much-anticipated Phone (1) official — a smartphone packed with decent mid-range internals, featuring a transparent back design that the company calls the “Glyph Interface” with a 50MP dual-camera setup, a Snapdragon 778G Plus chip, NothingOS, and more!

Nothing is here.

Nothing Phone (1) is a mid-range handset boasting a 6.55-inch FHD+ OLED display with HDR10+ support, 120Hz refresh rate and 240hz touch sampling rate. It has a resolution of 2400 x 1080 and comes protected with the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both front and back panels. It also uses a 100-percent recycled aluminum frame.

The Snapdragon 778G Plus chipset sits at the helm with either 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The phone runs on Android 12-based NothingOS with the ability to control an AirPod or a Tesla car. It also comes with a 3-year major Android update and a 4-year minor security patch.

Camera-wise, the mid-range handset comes equipped with a dual-camera setup, consisting of a 50MP Sony IMX766 main sensor with dual Optical and Electronic Image Stabilization (OIS and EIS) alongside a 50MP ultra-wide lens with a 114-degree FOV Samsung JN1 sensor. In front is a 16MP Sony IMX471 selfie snapper.

Powering the Nothing Phone (1) is a 4,500mAh battery that charges at 33W (wired), 15W (wireless), or 5W (reverse) through USB-C. Other features include NFC, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and dual stereo speakers. And yes, it lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack.
