After months of teases, Nothing Phone (1) has finally arrived. The startup’s debut smartphone is a departure from the typical as it comes with a customizable glyph lighting and a transparent design.
The Glyph Interface is made up of 900 LEDs that illuminate to signal notifications, charging status, and more. You can even assign individual contacts to a ringtone, each with a unique Glyph pattern, so you’ll immediately know who’s calling without looking at your screen. The strips can also act as a fill light for the phone’s cameras. A single red LED flashes when the phone is recording video.
Nothing Phone (1) features a translucent rear panel in black or white. Its 100% recycled aluminum frame makes it light and robust, while over 50% of the phone’s plastic components are made with bio-based or post-consumer recycled materials. Gorilla Glass 5 protects the phone’s front and back.
This smartphone sports a 6.55-inch OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, dual 50MP rear cameras, and a 4,500mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
It’s powered by a Snapdragon 778G+ chipset custom-made for Nothing to include wireless and reverse charging.
It will be available in three models:
- 8GB + 128GB: £399
- 8GB + 256GB: £449
- 12GB + 256GB: £499
