Nothing’s Android smartphone, the Phone (1), debuts without U.S. launch plans


The coolest cellphone for Individuals to longingly stare at from across the pond is right here.

Almost nothing, the tech startup powering final year’s trendy Ear (1) earbuds, completely lifted the veil off its debut smartphone through a livestream on Tuesday. The Absolutely nothing Mobile phone (1) follows a identical philosophy to the Ear (1): It bundles a low selling price with much better-than-anticipated specs and severely interesting-as-hell seems.

There’s just one challenge: It is not coming out in the U.S. suitable now.

The Nothing at all Cellular phone (1) begins at £400 (about $475 USD), putting it right in mid-selection rate territory, but that does not make any difference if you just cannot invest in it. Nevertheless, with a transparent again scenario featuring a exceptional light-centered notification system, and white and black products, it is 1 of the additional elegant phones on the industry. It also packs respectable specs to match its superior seems to be:

  • 6.55-inch OLED show with HDR10+ and a 120Hz adaptive refresh fee

  • 8 or 12GB RAM

  • 128GB or 256GB storage

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset

  • 2x 50MP rear-digital camera lenses (a single main and a single ultra vast)

  • 16MP selfie digital camera

  • 5G and WiFi 6 guidance

  • 4,500mAh battery with wi-fi charging

  • USB-C charging port

The most placing aspect of the Nothing Phone (1) is, by natural means, the clear back again that reveals some of the technical innards of the cell phone. There are a series of lights in this again panel called the “Glyph” interface which can be tailored to light-weight up otherwise for phone calls, notifications, and charging status. The notion is that you can flip the cellphone over on its entrance, decrease display screen time, and continue to not miss out on significant information and facts.

Apart from that, it works by using a proprietary edition of Android named Almost nothing OS. It has its own widgets with dot matrix fonts and promises a lack of bloatware apps, which will be good information for Android fans who are weary of deleting applications each and every time they get a new cell phone. It all appears to be extremely futuristic and substantial tech, which is great. Regretably, yet again, it won’t be bought in the states and men and women in qualified nations who want 1 will have to take part in an invite-only process to begin.

Nevertheless, it’s great that a person is earning a cell phone that doesn’t glance like each individual other phone. Possibly someday people of us who stay stateside can even get our arms on 1.
