Nothing Phone 1 Launched in India With Dual 50-Megapixel Cameras, Glyph Interface: Price, Details

After weeks of teasing, Nothing Phone 1 was released in many regions, including India, on Tuesday. The Nothing Phone 1, the business’s first smartphone, has an unattractive design and a transparent back panel. The company is situated in London. This will help the Glyph Interface, which makes use of LED strips and lets users select specific light patterns for alerts and more. The device features a 4.500mAh battery with 33W fast charging, a 6.55-inch OLED display having 120Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC, and 50-megapixel dual rear cameras.


Priced at Rs 35,999 for the 8GB/256GB and Rs 38,999 for the 12GB/256GB are the prices of Nothing Phone 1 according to flipkart. Customers are eligible for an HDFC Instant Discount of Rs. 2,000, which will be combined with a 3- and 6-month EMI (applicable with credit cards (EMI and full swipe) and debit cards (EMI), exchange promotion, and increased exchange on specific devices.

Due to the Phone (1)’s straight-sided metal frame, rounded edges, flat front and back, and location of the two rear cameras, the overall appearance is immediately reminiscent of Apple’s iPhone 12; simply scale it up, put it through an X-ray machine, and there you have it. You might wonder, “Why an X-ray machine?” The new thing of the Phone (1)’s shape is its back, which is entirely transparent.

Although transparent-backed phones have been seen previously, often the internal parts are either completely false (as on Xiaomi’s Mi 8 Explorer Edition) or only partially exposed (like on the HTC U12+). Nothing has created the exposed bits underneath it to be both visually beautiful and practical.

The Phone (1) is a much more interesting rectangle of electronics to look at than the majority of other phones on the market thanks to the differing specular highlights and shadows that appear over and under the layers of variously textured components, screws, and ribbon cables beneath the back glass as you turn the phone in your hand.


While the phone’s transparent back is a talking point, the ‘glyphs’ feature, which Nothing has called a sequence of 900 white LEDs arranged over the back of the phone in a unique layout that functions as a sort of notification light on steroids, is the real show-stopper. Each segmented glyph may light up independently of the others, and the LEDs are diffused to generate bars of light that flow around components like the back camera module and wireless charging coil. It’s a special ability that Nothing has utilised in a variety of inventive ways.

You can modify what the glyphs react to and when they react by navigating to the Glyph Interface in the phone’s settings. The different light and haptic patterns are flawlessly matched – in terms of brightness and intensity, respectively – to the audio of each when they are paired by default to one of Nothing’s 10 own-brand ringtones and notification tones. Although, they can serve as glanceable alerts, the glyphs can also serve as a battery charge indication for both wired charging and reverse wireless charging;


Since the Phone (1) is now available, we can confirm that Nothing has fitted the device with a 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED panel with a 120Hz high refresh rate, along with HDR10+ compatibility as well as 10-bit colour support. There had been some rumours about the panel that the Phone (1) would sport, largely due to its expected price point.

A not insignificant bezel surrounds the screen, but it gains some aesthetic points by having a constant thickness throughout (something that is not always a given and is not always simple to execute, from a technical aspect). An optical in-display fingerprint sensor is located low and near the bottom border of the screen, while the phone’s punch-hole front-facing camera is located in the top-left corner.

Performance and Battery

The Snapdragon 778G+, an outdated seventh-generation Qualcomm processor, was implemented by Nothing, startling industry observers, and became one of the most contentious features of the Phone (1) prior to debut. The top-tier variant of this comes with 12GB RAM, but the base model only has 8GB. The “+” indicates that it supports both wireless (up to 15W) as well as reverse wireless (up to 5W) charging.

The Phone (1) conceals a 4500mAh battery that, according to Nothing, provides up to 18 hours of use per charge and recharges to 50% in 30 minutes, providing you have purchased the proper 33W PD/Quick Charge 4.0-compliant power adapter. Nothing offers its own adapter, but doesn’t include one in the box, meaning all you’ll find is a white USB-C to USB-C cable.

Camera and Audio

While the front-facing camera only has a modest 16MP resolution, both back cameras have 50MP resolutions. With the secondary 50MP Samsung JN1 ultrawide sensor, you don’t have to sacrifice sharpness when switching between the two focal lengths. The primary Sony IMX766 sensor is supported by OIS (optical image stabilisation) and is common among phone manufacturers (found on current models like the flagship Xiaomi 12 and mid-range OnePlus Nord 2).

It shouldn’t be surprising that the Phone (1) has a wired headphone connector because Nothing’s first product was a set of Bluetooth earphones. Instead, music is sent through Bluetooth 5.2. Select headphones, including the company’s own Nothing Ear 1, may connect instantaneously thanks to Nothing’s own quick-pair technology (although a complete list of supported devices hasn’t yet been released).

The phone also has two stereo speakers, but they are not equally distributed; the earpiece produces mids and highs while the down-firing speaker receives the majority of the power.
