When former OnePlus founder Carl Pei announced that his new venture Nothing would be entering the smartphone business, tech enthusiasts around the world went crazy. Now, years after that announcement, nothing is more than ready to launch its mobile device. However, before the official launch event, the specifications of Nothing Phone 1 have already been leaked.
When Carl Pei announced that he was leaving OnePlus and starting his own tech company, the tech community was thrilled. Here’s the guy who launched one of the most consumer and enthusiast-friendly smartphone brands, the true flagship filler, and is doing it all over again just because he can.
A tipster on Twitter has shared a user guide of Nothing’s upcoming phone, the Nothing Phone 1. The user guide, aside from the specs, has also revealed that the phone will be sold in India through Amazon. This seems feasible, as Nothing ear (1), the company’s TWS earbuds are also sold through Amazon.
The leaked user guide reveals that Nothing Phone 1 will have a 6.43-inch FHD+ display, with support for a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+. It is powered by a Snapdragon 778G SoC and 8 GB of RAM. The device will be running NothingOS which will be based on Android 12. The device will be powered by a 4500 mAh battery with 80-120W charging. It is also planned to support wireless charging.
Since the Nothing Phone 1 is powered by a Snapdragon 778G chipset, which is considered a mid-tier or mid-range phone, it will go against the Realme GT Master Edition, the Xiaomi 11 NE 5G .
The basic variant of the device will have 128 GB of storage space. As for the cameras, Nothing Phone 1 would have a triple camera setup on the back with the primary camera having a 50MP sensor. We also get an 8MP and a 2MP shooter, for ultra-wide angle and macro photography.
Since this leak comes from a rather unreliable source, it would be better if these are taken with a huge grain of salt. The Nothing Phone 1 is slated for release towards the end of this summer, so we should be getting leaks from reputable sources and leakers within a few weeks.
