- Leak suggests Nothing will forego the charging adapter for its upcoming flagship
- Companies like Samsung and Apple have followed this policy for a while now
- Another leak sheds more light on the dual-camera setup of the Nothing Phone (1)
While the Nothing Phone (1) launch is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, July 12, we’ve already learned quite a bit about the smartphone, courtesy of innumerable leaks. We’re now getting an early hint about the retail packaging of the Nothing Phone (1), indicating that the phone may not include a charging adapter.
This information comes from a giveaway promotion run by the YouTube channel, Technical Guruji, giving us an early glimpse at the packaging of the Nothing Phone (1). The lack of a dedicated charging adapter is not particularly new to the industry. Manufacturers like Samsung and Apple have adopted this policy for a while now, in a bid to reduce the amount of electronic waste in the world. But this move is unlikely to be popular with prospective buyers of the Nothing Phone (1), especially given the rumoured price tag of Rs 30,000 to Rs 40,000.
Meanwhile, leaker Yogesh Brar on Twitter has shed light on the camera performance of the new smartphone. Brar said last week that the ultra-wide sensor on the device can also capture macro photos. This means a third sensor for macro photos would be redundant. This could partially explain Nothing’s reasoning behind using a dual-camera setup. The leaker also said that the upcoming smartphone will utilize an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner in the popular under-display format.
Nothing Phone (1) specifications and price
The Nothing Phone (1) will include a 6.55-inch OLED screen, with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. Both the display and rear panel will include Gorilla Glass protection. Company founder, Carl Pei, has revealed that the device will include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G+ chipset.
The Nothing Phone (1) will be available with 8GB and 12GB RAM variants, sporting 128GB and 256GB of internal storage, respectively. There’s also going to be a mid-tier version with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The entry-level variant is expected to cost €469 (under Rs 38,000). The mid-tier version, on the other hand, will set customers back by €499 (Rs 40,000). The top-of-the-line variant will reportedly cost €549 (Rs 44,000) upon release.
