The first Nothing phone will also have wireless charging
Teasing for the Nothing Phone 1 has been underway for a few months now, and a new selection of details is here du Company CEO, an interview with Wallpaper magazine, and a separate leak. Starting with the confirmed details, the brand has announced that it will include a transparent back on its very first smartphone, and it will feature wireless charging. We haven’t seen an exact photo of the design, but he did show off some of his design sketches which give us an idea of what to expect.
According to Nothing CEO Carl Pei, the brand uses the wireless charging coil as a hero element in the design. The brand’s Nothing ear 1 headphones also featured a see-through design, so this looks to be a staple for the brand going forward. Design lead Tom Howard and Carl Pei discussed the phone with design outlet Wallpaper magazine, where he also confirmed that the frame of the phone would be made from recycled aluminum.
We don’t yet know how fast the wireless charging technology will be offered or if it will include features like reverse wireless charging. There’s been no confirmation yet that the phone will feature a Snapdragon chipset, but we’ve yet to hear if it will be the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ or one from elsewhere in Qualcomm’s lineup.
Pei said the handset will get a full reveal in “summer 2022”. This lines up with leaked information we also saw this week that indicates the phone will arrive in July. According to publication Allround PC, the handset either launches or goes on sale on July 21 this year, and it will cost around €500 in Europe. If true, that price will be around $530 in the US.
Take this information with a pinch of salt as we have yet to see any further leaks from this post, but the details are said to be from a “European dealer” so it may be true. The post also makes it clear that it doesn’t yet know if July 21 is the date of a launch event or if it will be the date the phone goes on sale. Expect to hear more about the Nothing Phone 1 over the next few months. Earlier this month, the brand showed off its launcher, which we tried on smartphones, giving any phone running Android 11 or higher “Max Icons”.
Here’s a reason the Pixel Watch might remind you so much of the Apple Watch
