Several characteristics of the Nothing phone (1) have already been the subject of suppositions. We now learn more about the load that the device of the London firm should offer.
That’s it, the Nothing phone (1) is officially only a few weeks away from its official launch. The new company from Carl Pei’s team has finally announced after a long teasing the date of its presentation of its very first smartphone which will take place on July 12 at 5 p.m. French time. Information around this transparent smartphone had already begun to circulate. Here is a news today which now concerns an important feature, namely the charging of the phone.
45 W fast charging for a mid-range smartphone
We learn through 91Mobiles and Sudhanshu Ambhore’s Twitter account that a TUV certification for a Nothing brand charger has emerged. Three model numbers can be seen there which are C304, C347 and C348, which would mean that Nothing would internally prepare three versions of its loader for its global launch. The power supply is indicated there as being able to support a load of 45 W, which sets it apart from some high-end Android smartphones which do not yet all offer consistent charging speeds. The speed of recharging is more of an asset than mid-range smartphones will have today.
We are therefore slowly beginning to see the contours of this future smartphone since we had also been able to take note of what could probably be its technical sheet. This smartphone is said to have a 6.55-inch “chinless” Full HD screen (6.43-inch according to other sources) with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, a Snapdragon 700 series chip, probably the Snapdragon 778G (although the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 could also be an option) coupled with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
We would also have a triple camera of 50 + 8 + 2 Mpx, a front camera of 32 Mpx and a 4500 mAh battery with wireless charging that we could therefore recharge at 45 W by wire.
An aesthetically coherent range of products
But nothing is certain for the moment. The smartphone would run at launch under Android 12 with NothingOS and its launcher, made available recently. The last thing we don’t have any information about yet is its design.
We had been able to see some guidelines of its design with an aesthetic on the back which would be notably inspired by the New York subway map of 1972 created by Massimo Vignelli and Bob Noorda. Its design should be in line with the brand’s other product: the Nothing ear (1). According to current rumors, this smartphone would finally be launched on July 21 at a price of around 500 euros.
