According to the business, Qualcomm’s midrange Snapdragon 778G Plus CPU powers the Phone 1, Nothing’s first smartphone. Therefore, it is unlikely that the phone will match the top Qualcomm processor, such as the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, in terms of raw performance.
The company chose the lower-specced processor because, according to Nothing founder Carl Pei, it provides a better balance of pricing, performance, heat production, and power usage. Nothing further indicates that the 778G Plus model supports wireless and reverse wireless charging, features typically found in Qualcomm’s top-tier chipsets. Additionally, the Snapdragon 778G Plus has a slightly faster CPU clock speed than the Snapdragon 778G it replaces.
Although the white form of the Phone 1 has received most of Nothing’s attention, fresh leaks indicate a black model may also be available. Images of the second colour, which looks to have the same illuminating light strips as the white variant, were leaked by Ishan Agarwal and shared on Twitter. According to the source, additional suspected specifications include a 6.55-inch 120Hz display, a 4,500mAh battery with 45W quick charging, and 8GB of RAM.
Nothing has not been shy in disclosing the Phone 1’s features in advance, despite the fact that its official launch isn’t scheduled until next month. It revealed its back design earlier this month, handed YouTuber Marques Brownlee an early sample to explain the illuminating light strips on its back, and confirmed that the phone isn’t getting a US launch (it’s focusing on Europe). It also announced that the phone isn’t receiving a US launch. At this rate, the price and release date will be the only information remaining to reveal on July 12.
