Carl Pei’s design Nothing claims that its next phone (1) will be “unlike anything else you’ve ever seen”. However, a fresh leak appears to contradict this bold promise, resulting in something far more repetitive and predictable than the brand is presumably aiming for.
According to this fresh source, the Nothing phone (1) will be released with components and properties that have already been used by other OEMs. A 6.43-inch HDR10+ AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate is among them.
This front panel may also feature a 32MP front-facing camera, while the back panel may feature a triple 50+8+2MP array. The Nothing phone (1) is now expected to contain a 4,500mAh battery, with no mention of rapid charging – albeit wireless charging is rumored to be included.
This latest list just mentions one 8GB RAM/256GB internal storage SKU (with no mention of expandability or anything else), which supposedly verifies that the out-of-the-box edition of Nothing OS will be based on Android 12. (a reasonable prediction for any new 2022 phone, especially one needing to build market share from scrap).
Nothing Phone 1 New Specifications Leaks
Finally, this fresh leak of New Nothing Phone 1 specifications confirms the existence of a Qualcomm processor: the Snapdragon 778G from the past. Overall, this appears to be an unimpressive package headed for standard-issue status, and therefore at odds with Pei and the company’s high and by-now very public aspirations.
However, the source of all these additional reported details could call this view into question. They were shared on Twitter by @rsjadon01, the same user who appears to have misinterpreted Carl Pei’s recent and jocular response to a question about the phone’s launch date as a legitimate tip.
Similarly, it appears that @rsjadon01 presents this fresh putative leak using only screenshots from an alleged “NOTHING PHONE 1 User Manual” (one of several similar e-books available on Amazon).
The information as it has been replicated suggests that Nothing’s branding has become even less inventive than anticipated, implying, for example, “Color Fluid Display” marketing, which, if accurate, would be a straight and egregious rip-off of OnePlus’ brand identification.
Overall, it would be best if this leak turned out to be as bad as it appears to be, especially for Nothing’s sake.
