While we eagerly await the release of the Nothing Phone (1) – the first device from OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, startup – there are still a few mysteries left to uncover.
We learned that it has a 6.6-inch 120Hz 1080p OLED display, a Snapdragon 778G+ processor in the mid-range, as well as two cameras on the back – a 50MP main sensor and a 16MP ultra-wide camera.
You can’t expect much else for the price under $500, of course, but it’s not the number of cameras that matters, Carl Pei suggests, but rather what the cameras on the phone can do. Better to have two quality sensors, he adds, than four cheap and almost useless ones.
So Phone (1) only has two cameras. Two great. Not four mediocre ones. It starts with the sensor. And we chose the best. Our main camera uses the flagship 50MP Sony IMX766. To give you exceptional images every time. That means extraordinary detail in any light with the ƒ/1.88 aperture and 1/1.56-inch sensor size.
We took the 10-bit color from flagship phones. And gave it to our videos. That means each video can capture 1 billion colors. For smoother gradients and powerful, lifelike realism. And it has dual OIS and EIS stabilization. Naturally.
