The Nothing Phone (1) is undeniably one of the best-designed Android smartphones in the premium mid-range segment. What sets this handset apart from the rest is its transparent back which is crafted out of glass. The Nothing Phone (1)’s transparent back tucks LEDs beneath that decorates the panel with white hues. This LED strip at the back glows with every notification. You can also customize the LED notifications manually for calls and messages. Users can also set patterns for specific callers which is again a unique feature offered by a modern-day Android smartphone. The back panel features two large sensors aligned vertically on the top left corner. Up front, the Nothing Phone (1) flaunts a waterdrop style notch for the selfie snapper.
Nothing has used all the high-end features on its first premium mid-range Android phone. Powering this handset is the octa-core Snapdragon 778G processor. This is a dedicated game-centric chipset that has been designed by Qualcomm for value flagship phones in the market. The octa-core processor combines Adreno 642L GPU to render extensive graphics without any stutters or lags. Since this is a game-centric chipset, it is suitable for graphic-hungry titles such as BGMI, Asphalt 9, Shadow Fight, and others. For multitasking, the Nothing Phone (1) employs up to 8GB of RAM. The handset offers up to 128GB onboard storage capacity which is further expandable via a microSD card.
The display game is also pretty strong on the Nothing Phone (1). Nothing has packed its first smartphone with a massive 6.55-inch screen. The panel used by the premium mid-range phone is OLED. The Nothing Phone (1) display delivers a high FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The large screen size along with 1080p resolution makes it suitable for video consumption at OTT platforms and also via local directories. The display is also suitable for gaming.
The imaging setup is also good on the first Nothing-labelled handset. The device comes with three rear cameras and a single selfie snapper. At the back, the vertical camera module houses a 50MP main camera which is accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide sensor and an additional 2MP sensor. The Nothing Phone (1)’s rear camera module is capable enough to capture images with high clarity levels. You can expect the daylight shots to be good with detailing, while for the low-light photos there will be a dedicated mode in the app. The Nothing Phone (1) features a 32MP snapper for selfies and video calling.
The Nothing Phone (1) spec-sheet is rounded off by a capacious 4,500 mAh battery unit. This battery size allows the handset to deliver an approximate backup of an entire day. You would need to re-plug a charger twice only if the handset is being used extensively. The Nothing Phone (1) offers 45W fast charging technology that is quick enough to refuel the device in less than an hour.
