Special Edition Nothing Phone (1) up for auction! Also see its cool GLYPH interface
Nothing Phone (1) is barely a few weeks away from its global launch but the company has already revealed how the phone looks and what it will offer. After revealing the phone's design last week, Nothing announced it would put up the first 100 units of the Nothing Phone (1) on auction at StockX, the proceeds of which will go towards a community managed fund. That auction hs started today and that means, you can buy the Nothing Phone (1) if you have got the cash. The bidding is already up on StockX.
While Nothing started the bidding at a price $156, it rose up fast and at the moment, sits at a price of $2651. In fact, most of the units have been sold already. These units will have a special serial number marked on their side, showing which of the 100 first devices you own. The rest of the design and phone (seemingly) remains unchanged. Nothing is yet to reveal the retail price of the Phone (1) but we only have to wait until July 12 to know that.
Nothing Phone (1) design revealed too
In a separate video from YouTube creator Marques Brownlee, the Nothing Phone (1) is shown in action. And this time, we also get to see the front of the phone, which as speculated is no different than a Google Pixel 5. The display has uniform and slim bezels, with a small camera cutout sitting on the side. There seems to be no fingerprint scanner on the display visible, which means Nothing could be using a power key-mounted solution.
The biggest attention hog on this phone though is the Glyph Interface feature – a fancy arrangement of LED lights spread all across the rear of the phone. These LED lights are used for notifications and all the usual stuff but they also light up in patterns depending on the ringtone selected. It glows only white in the video and we assume that is the only colour users could see.
Sadly, Brownlee does not reveal what lies inside the Nothing Phone (1), ither that the Nothing OS in action. Rumours suggest that phone will use the new Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chip, a 120Hz AMOLED display, a dual rear camera system with a 50MP main camera, a 4500mAh battery with support for 45W fast charging and regular wireless charging.
