After months of speculation and digital renderings, Nothing Company has finally revealed the industrial design of the to come Nothing Phone (1). Company founder Carl Pei, who was also one of the founders of OnePlus, took to Instagram and other social media platforms and posted a photo showing off the back of their upcoming design.
The Nothing Phone (1) will come with a transparent back that will show off all the phone’s internals. However, to give the Phone (1) a super clean look, Nothing Company decided to color most of the modules white. Users can also see the wireless charging coil under the transparent surface.
The image shows what indeed appears to be a transparent back, with a dual rear camera system, a wireless charging coil and the Nothing logo in the middle. It’s unclear if the logo also doubles as a magnet for wireless chargers and other accessories, similar to Apple’s MagSafe technology. We can also see flat edges, a power button (likely doubled as a fingerprint scanner) and a pair of volume keys.
Nothing has mastered how to make industrial designs look clean and attractive, which when you think about it, isn’t that easy. Technical experts, as well as product designers, were impressed with how Nothing managed to hide all the solder points and glue used to make the Nothing ear (1).
From the photographs, speculation around the Nothing Phone’s (1) camera module has become somewhat clear. It will be a dual-camera setup, with a normal lens and possibly a telephoto lens. There also appears to be a LiDAR sensor in the camera module. However, there was never any chatter about it, so it’s most likely another sensor.
As for other specs, the Nothing Phone (1) is said to have a 6.43-inch FHD+ display, with support for 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+. It will run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC, which will be powered by a 4,500mAh battery with 80-120W charging, along with an undisclosed standard for wireless charging.
The Nothing Phone (1) be available exclusively on Flipkart in Indiaand can be booked now for Rs 2,000.
