Despite a full design reveal and a closer look at the Glyphy Interface lights on the back, the specifications of the awaited Nothing phone (1) have remained a mystery for a long time. Now a couple of weeks away from its launch, we have our first leak that suggests that the phone (1) could be powered by a Snapdragon 778G+ chip.
A tweet by trusted tipster Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings) suggests that the Nothing phone (1) will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset. The chipset seems to be an upgraded version of the regular Snapdragon 778G, but is not the latest in the series, which would be the more recent Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.
The Snapdragon 778G+ chip will reportedly have a primary performance core clocked at 2.52GH and the Adreno 642 GPU for graphical tasks. The leak also mentions that the Nothing phone (1) could come with Android 12 out of the box and 8GB RAM.
