The British company known as “Nothing” released its first smartphone back in July, and the world was pretty impressed. The new Nothing Phone (1) seems to fully deserve its demanding price of $745: it’s equipped with a Snapdragon 778G+ 5G processor, Android 12 out of the box, 8/12GB of RAM, a Li-Po battery of 4,500mAh, etc.
According to NoteBookCheck, ComputerBase noticed that despite Nothing saying that its phone will be equipped with a 1,200-nit display, it turned out that the truth is different. The phone hasn’t proven to reach 1,200 nits. Instead, it was able to peak at 500 nits.
Interestingly enough, Nothing modified the specs of the phone on its website, reducing the peak brightness to 700 nits, without mentioning anything or apologizing. That’s a pretty bad move when you’re new to the smartphone market!
A 50MP ultrawise sensor
Otherwise, the Nothing Phone (1) has pretty interesting specifications. We have also to remark the dual camera setup from the rear. There’s a wide 50MP camera along with a 50MP ultrawide sensor. The setup also involves features such as HDR, LED flash, and panorama. The video-recording capabilities are also not to be neglected, as the phone can film in 4K@30fps and 1080p@30/60fps. It’s also capable of gyro-EIS and live HDR.
The selfie camera represents the first area where we can say that Nothing Phone (1) doesn’t shine. It’s not exactly the kind of camera that can be used for vlogging, and that’s a big problem these days when everyone is a gifted and highly-intelligent influencer. The front camera consists of a wide 16MP camera and only Full HD video recording capabilities.
Other features of the Nothing Phone (1) device are optical and under-display fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, gyro, compass, and proximity.
Last but not least, we can keep in mind that Nothing’s phone also comes in two storage options: 128GB and 256GB.
