Nothing Phone (1) is in our hands! This is how it lights up with 900 LEDs! Unboxing

Nothing Phone (1) the most talked about smartphone of the moment and finally, after some vicissitudes of the couriers, in our hands. We were able to “ unpack it ” from its very particular box, flat and completely made of recycled material where the smartphone is placed but also a USB-C charging cable. And then we also got our hands on the accessories that you can buy directly from the official Nothing store.

No Phone (1): here is the unboxing!

Anything the startup developed some time ago by Carl Pei, the founder of OnePlus. After the presentation of the earphonesear (1),here is what the company hasunveiled to the world the most awaited smartphone of the moment: Phone (1). An original device in design but in step with the times in hardware since it has in the meantimean innovative interface called Glyphwhich makes it transparent to the eyes of users, adual camera with 50 megapixel sensorsan operating systemNo operating system,120Hz OLED displayand a processor as powerful as it isQualcomm Snapdragon 778G +.

HERE you will find all the features of Nothing Phone (1)








a robust smartphone with premium materials but above all something truly originalat least on an aesthetic level. And we are not talking clearly about its shape which in some way perhaps refers a lot to that of an iPhone 13 but certainly the design that Carl Pei wanted so different from the others especially in the so-calledGlyph interface (Glyph in Italian)which, according to its creator, represents anew way of communicatingallowing you to minimize the time spent on the screen. Yes, because at the rear there is aexclusive light pattern made by 900 LEDsthat light up based on some actions like onecallor even thenotificationsapplications or even itstate of chargeand so on. Even just associating single contacts to a ringtone with a unique Glyph lighting model to never miss anything really important.

The other technical specifications set it up as onemid-range smartphone but which somehow places itself at the top of the ranking. The simple reason: it has outstanding specifications that many competing devices do not have. Let’s start with the display, for example, because theNothing’s Phone (1) has a 6.55 “OLED type.HDR10 + with refresh rate that pushes up to 120Hz in an adaptive way to make the contents more fluid, more immersive and clearly try to consume the right according to the use made of it. In terms of power, the processor takes care of itQualcomm Snapdragon 778G +which in this case is not only proposed for maximum power and efficiency but above all it was made to measure for the Nothing Phone (1) so that it is possible to use thewireless charging and reverse chargingwhich is not possible with other devices with this chip.

And speaking of fast charging, know thatNothing Phone (1) has a 4,500 mAh batterywhich allow for at least 18 hours of use, according to company data, and two days of standby time. What they care for arecharging times because Phone (1) allows you to have 50% battery in just 30 minutesallowing also to power other devices such as earphones (1) withpower to 5W. Charging it insteadwirelessallows to dispenseup to 15Wwith support for any standard Qi type charger.

In addition to this clearly supported thefast 5G networkbut above all aGame mode modecapable of precisely adapting sound to graphics and minimizing notifications when playing for the ultimate ” gaming experience ” that is engaging and immersive.

You cannot present a smartphone without asking yourself about its photographic sector which has become fundamental today. HereNothing with Phone (1) does something a little differentfrom the others and offers a photographic sector with two sensors which are two quality sensors. Yes, because the smartphone provides adual camera with both 50 Megapixel sensorsof which the main one is now famousSony IMX766already used by other brands in their devices. a quality sensor withf / 1.8 wide aperturedouble image stabilization (OIS + EIS) e10-bit color video.

The second always a 50 Megapixel Ultra Wide sensorSamsung (JN1)which allows you to have f / 2.2, electronic stabilization and a shooting angle of 114. We will see in the review phase what the true value of this photographic sector will be but in the meantime, know that Nothing offers some useful functions as well as fun as the” Night mode ”or even the” Scene Detection ”. Moreover, by using at most the 900 LEDs of the back cover during the shooting phase, it is possible to have an important source of light to allow you to shoot even in dark situations as if you had a ring light.

And then there is the operating system or theNo operating systemwhich is clearly based on Android but which here, as happened with OnePlus,it is completely ” smooth ”ie without bloatware for a truly fluid experience. In this caseAnythingtried to make an operating system that was one with the hardware in such a way that there was a single visual language with widgets, fonts but also custom sounds and backgrounds that were completely designed to make them unique for theTelephone (1).On Nothing OS it will be possible to control all third-party apps and products directly from the quick settings of the smartphone as if they were predefined.
