Nothing phone (1): Design and features
The Nothing phone (1) comes in two colours – black and white. Both colours come with matching box packaging and white LED Glyph lights on the back.
Apart from this, the phone has dual stereo speakers, an in-display fingerprint scanner, IP53 certification and NFC support. There are multiple white LED strips on the back of the phone forming the Glyph interface. These lights can glow together or individually in various combinations to show users notifications, charging information and even help with caller identification when the phone is on silent.
The Nothing phone (1) comes with a 6.55-inch FHD+ 10-bit OLED display panel. This panel features Gorilla Glass protection, HDR10+ support, 402ppi pixel density and 1200 nits peak brightness. The panel also supports up to 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling.
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset, the phone also comes with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage.
There is a dual camera setup on the back comprising a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor (OIS+EIS) and another 50MP Samsung JN1 ultrawide sensor (EIS). This is accompanied by a 16MP Sony IMX471 front camera. The setup supports many features like HDR, Portrait Mode, Macro Mode (via the ultrawide camera), Bokeh and others. You can also record 4K at 30fps and 1080p video at up to 60fps from the rear cameras, while the front lets you record only 1080p 30fps.
