Nothing recently presented the phone (1) for the first time at the international art fair Art Basel. The Nothing phone (1) was surprisingly revealing.
Nothing had long kept a big secret about the design of the phone (1), yesterday the company finally revealed the look of the smartphone almost a month before the release, reports Android Authority.
At a surprise event at Art Basel, journalists and visitors were at least able to marvel at the back of the eagerly awaited smartphone under a Plexiglas box. As with the in-ear headphones Nothing ear (1), the company also uses transparent elements for the Nothing phone (1).
Transparent back with LED elements
The Swiss tech journalist Rafael Zeier captured his first impressions of the Nothing phone (1) on video. The transparent back of the smartphone can be seen in the video. This gives an insight into the inner workings of the smartphone.
However, hardware components are not revealed by the transparent back, they are covered by a white protective plate. The round sheet metal part in the middle reveals that the Nothing phone (1) can also be charged wirelessly. The induction coil is located under the round metal sheet.
There are LED elements around the dual camera and to the right of the camera module, which also light up white in the video. It is currently not known whether these LEDs can indicate users about incoming messages or calls.
Nothing OS should also offer an iconic design
Back in March, Nothing CEO Carl Pei announced that not only the Nothing phone (1), but also the Nothing OS operating system would have an iconic design. According to Pei, the operating system completely dispenses with bloatware, animations and effects should be kept to a minimum. The focus of the operating system should be performance.
But the design is not neglected either. Special fonts, graphic elements and customized sounds are designed to create a unique look.
When is the Nothing phone (1) coming?
It won’t be long before the Nothing phone (1) is released. On July 12th, Nothing will launch its smartphone at an event in London. The smartphone should then be available either immediately or a short time later. How much the Nothing phone (1) will cost is not known.
