Photo Announcement. Nothing Phone (1) - "nothing phone" with cool LEDs (+first glances)

Your rates. Is the startup Nothing the same subsidiary brand of the BBK corporation as OnePlus? We'll find out in five years. But they managed to make some noise already nobly and professionally, you can't argue.

Nothing Phone (1) is a perfectly balanced mid-range smartphone with very interesting LEDs. That's all that you see little white on the black back of the device - it's just them. And here is the very classic case when it is better to see once than to read a hundred times. Do not be too lazy to click on the video and watch it for at least ten seconds. edgeWhoa, huh?

There are about a million "first sights", by the way. I hide a couple under the cat. The complete collection is available on our website on the device page. And, of course, the topic of these diodes is not ignored in any video. Still would. In what other device do you see something like this?

First reviews of Nothing Phone (1)

Well, about the characteristics.

Fresh chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+, i.e. in AnTuTu we are waiting for 550-600 thousand parrots. The number of parrots is not flagship, but the level is definitely above average.

Memory, too, did not feel sorry. 8 or 12 GB RAM, 128 or 256GB permanent. And the memory is fast - LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1. But there is no support for memory cards.

6.55" (104 cm²) Flexible OLED screen. Standard resolution, 1080x2400 (402 ppi). Refresh rate up to 120 Hz. Dynamic frequency change in the range of 60-120 Hz is promised.

Medium capacity battery, 4500 mAh. Charging is moderately fast - 33 watts. Wireless charging is also supported, although its speed is lower, 15 watts. There is a reverse, you can recharge other devices.

The front camera has a resolution of 16 MP. There are only two rear cameras, but both have resolution.50 MP. The main one is with Sony IMX766 sensor and optical stabilization. And wide angle. The sensor is simpler there, Samsung JN1. But she also knows how to work as a macro camera.

By the way, similar cameras are used, in particular, in Realme 9 Pro+. The same main one and also with OIS, a similar front camera. Well, the width is simpler. And in general, if you think about it, the devices are largely similar. But Nothing will be more fun, you can't argue.

Other. Of course, there is an NFC module, a sixth Wi-Fi, Type-C. The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen. No standard audio output�wow.

And about money. €469 (₽27,600, $468), €499 (₽29,300, $498) and €549 (₽32,300, $548) at launch in Europe for 8+128, 8+256 and 12+256 GB versions, respectively. Indians - discounts. ₹32999 (₽24600, $417), ₹35999 (₽26800, $455) and ₹38999 (₽29000, $493).

(Chargers, if you need them, will have to be purchased separately. They are not included in the standard package).
