- Unique and iconic phone design.
- Custom Android Skin “Nothing OS.”
- Seamless support for third-party products.
Nothing held a “The Truth” event during which it finally revealed some facts about its upcoming smartphone. This startup unveiled its first smartphone, the Nothing Phone (1), intending to create something genuinely unique in the smartphone market. Meanwhile, the event was more of an extended teaser launch, so there is still a lot we don’t know.
For yet, we know that it will be a watershed moment, at least that’s how Carl Pei, the founder of Nothing, started the event.
However, you’ll find everything we’ve learned thus far about the Nothing Phone (1) in this article.
Overview of Nothing Phone (1)
Nothing has revealed the specifications of its upcoming phone. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. According to Carl Pei and the team, the next Nothing phone (1) will bring a custom Android skin called “Nothing OS.” Similarly, it will be a major component in the company’s entire product ecosystem.
Moreover, Nothing uses dot matrix fonts and retro aesthetic components to provide a human touch. For instance, the tape recorder-like design of the voice recorder.
In addition, Nothing guarantees that third-party products like Air Pods and Tesla automobiles will work seamlessly. Let’s look into Nothing Phone(1)’s specifications, features, release date, price, and availability.
Nothing Phone (1) Release Date
The Nothing Phone (1) will be available in “summer 2022.” Right now, there is no price information.
However, given Carl Pei’s role in establishing OnePlus as a low-cost, high-quality brand, we can probably expect pricing that undercuts significant competitors like the Samsung Galaxy and OnePlus 10 Pro.

The design of the Nothing Phone (1) is unknown. Yet, the illustrations provided by Nothing event hint at the phone’s back, which features a stadium-shaped camera block in the top left corner.
Meanwhile, the founder Carl Pei says, “The design is “unlike anything you’ve seen before.”
Furthermore, the phone’s back may be transparent. According to a tweet from the company and the see-through design of the Nothing Ear 1, the Phone 1 will transport us back to the feature phone era, when transparent gadgets were still fashionable.
We got a better idea of how the phone’s interface will look from an event. The phone will have “Nothing OS.” The company describes Nothing OS as a crucial component combined with its “iconic design language.” Similarly, you can expect 3-years of OS upgrades and 4-years of security updates in terms of updates.
Meanwhile, Nothing claims that using the Nothing 1 phone will be effortless due to the unification of images across different screens. The dot matrix clock on the always-on display, for example, is in the same place when you unlock the smartphone.
Furthermore, Nothing also uses custom fonts, colors, and graphical components to emphasize its distinct visual language. The weather widget, for example, employs the same dot matrix font as the company’s logo, which results in smooth animations.
The voice recorder app, for example, has a nostalgic and humorous vibe. You can rewind and fast forward by manipulating an analog tape wheel.
In addition, Nothing will re-launch a Nothing OS launcher in April, which can be used on other phones to get a taste of the Nothing Phone (1).
Performance and Specs
At this time, Nothing Phone 1 specs are unknown, although the phone will be manufactured in collaboration with Qualcomm. It indicates the phone will possibly use the flagship-grade Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
The Nothing Phone 1 also claims “smooth and fast performance” by providing users with the processing power and RAM they require for the specific program they’re operating. Also, Phone 1 should learn from your usage and start the apps you use the most quickly.
Based on the existence of what appears to be an always-on display, the phone would need an OLED panel to make this work. Hopefully, this means a high refresh rate, similar to the 120Hz standard found on more costly Android phones.
