Nothing Phone (1) leaked price hints at iPhone SE rival, launching sooner than you expect
Nothing is coming up with its first smartphone and so far, we have nothing on it from the brand (see, what we did?). Yes, we got a glimpse of the possible design of the rear panel, which is going all transparent to showcase the insides of the phone. We also know it will come with the Nothing Launcher, which is now available for all Android users to download. However, leaks have given us more about the phone and so far, we expect the Nothing Phone (1) to be a midrange smartphone. The newest leak no suggests it could be a flagship killer.
Based on the newest leak from a German website allroundpc.com, it seems the Nothing Phone (1) is launching on July 21. This aligns with Carl Pei’s announcement of the Nothing Phone (1) launching sometime in Summer 2022. Moreover, the leak also reveals that the Nothing Phone (1) could carry a price tag of somewhere around 500 Euros. This puts it strictly in the midrange category, wherein we have seen some flagship killer phones residing of late.
Nothing Phone (1) leaks further
The Nothing Phone (1) leaks have painted a picture of a midrange device with no out-of-the-world features. In fact, a previous leak suggested the device to get a 6.4-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 90Hz, a Snapdragon 778G chip at the helm of Nothing OS based on Android 12, and controlling a 50MP + 8MP + 2MP triple rear camera system; all backed by a 4500mAh battery. No details on the charging solution yet but Nothing has itself hinted at support for wireless charging.
That said, these details are not to be taken seriously considering Nothing is yet to reveal anything. Nothing would certainly like to offer the newest specifications on its first smartphone and it could be most likely use its partnership with Qualcomm to source the new Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset.
Nothing had earlier revealed some details on the possible design of the phone. “From a design perspective, we really wanted to bring the inside out, and that meant working with the engineers to start from first principles. There are over 400 components in a smartphone, assembled in layers. We wanted to celebrate the “good ones”, the things we thought were really interesting to emphasise,” said Nothing head of design Tom Howard.
