Most of the specs of the first Nothing smartphone have emerged ahead of the official unveiling next week. Several sources—including a notable leaker—and the company itself hint that the Nothing Phone (1) may live up to the hype after all.


  • Major specs of the Nothing Phone (1) have been shared online.
  • The Nothing Phone (1) is expected to feature Under Display fingerprint sensor and 33W fast charging.
  • Nothing has already confirmed that its Phone (1) will not be released in the US.

Spotted from Nothing's official Tiktok channel is an under display (UD) fingerprint scanner of the Nothing Phone (1) being demonstrated. Based on the video clip, the in-display sensor will be placed at the bottom center. It also shows a noticeably fast unlocking gesture. More pundits now assume that the sensor will utilize ultrasonic technology similar to more expensive devices such as the Galaxy S22.

A frequent leaker on Twitter, Mukul Sharma, has shared a document opining about the mid-range phone's charging capabilities. The listing indicates that Nothing Phone (1) will sport a 33 watts fast charging through wired connection. However, it gets a little weirder as the listed adapter comes with a faster 45 watts rating, which may also mean that it will be sold separately.

Nothing Phone (1) pricing and specs

Other specs of the Nothing Phone (1) include a 6.5-inch AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, 4500 mAh battery, and 50MP main camera paired with a 16MP ultrawide sensor. The mid-ranger will boast up to 12GB of RAM, Snapdragon 778G+ 5G chipset, and unique Glyph interface.

In terms of pricing, the device is rumored to be priced around €470 in Europe according to an Amazon listing. Meanwhile, Nothing has already confirmed that its Phone (1) will not launch in the US.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.

    The early bug reports are coming in. Green screen tints, blobs around camera cutout. Basic QA failure and corner cutting.

    I have no interest in the brand and its products. Carl's reputation for shoddy product alone is a disaster imho.

        Carl won't even sell it in the US. That's how unconfident he is in it's appeal and ability to sell.

        It sure does look you think it will be popular in Europe though?
