Nothing Phone 1 breaks cover ahead of full reveal next month

Nothing, the company spun up by former OnePlus CEO Carl Pei is readying to officially unveil its first smartphone – the Nothing Phone 1 – on 12th July, but in a move to seemingly pre-empt serial leakers, as well as drum up further interest, an image of the phone has been shared.

The image is currently pinned to the company’s Twitter account, showcasing the transparent rear of the phone and not much else.

While we only have the image above to go by, we can at least infer some details of the upcoming Nothing Phone 1, such as the fact that it will feature a dual lens camera array on the back. Added to this looks to a large circular pad on the rear to support wireless charging, so it looks like this Android device is taking a few cues from the Apple iPhone.

The transparent back cover also affords users the ability to see some of the internal mechanisms of the device, although it remains to be seen whether a generic plastic protective cover will mask any of it.

The look is much in keeping with Nothing’s designs to date, which include the wireless earphones as its first commercial device.

In terms of specification, we do know the Nothing Phone 1 will feature a mid-range Qualcomm processor, but the precise model of silicon and indeed support for 5G have not been detailed at the time of writing.

As such, this device will likely be aimed at the premium mid-range space, with pricing and availability set to arrive on 12th July. The live stream for the event can be accessed here, with it kicking off at 17:00 South African time.

While it will be interesting to se what the Nothing Phone 1 serves up, being in SA, you can only get so excited, given Nothing does not operate globally yet.
