Must see video: CEO Carl Pei introduces the Nothing Phone (1)

Written by admin

The Nothing Phone (1) was officially unveiled on Tuesday with a 6.55-inch OLED screen with an FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 and a refresh rate of 60-120Hz. Under the hood you will find the mid-range Snapdragon 778G+ chipset. While the base model has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of native storage, the high-end variant has 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage.

The Nothing Phone (1) features a pair of 50MP camera sensors, one for the primary wide lens with an aperture of f/1.7, and one for the ultra-wide lens with an aperture of f/2.2. Video can be recorded in 4K at 30 fps and there is a 16 MP camera sensor with face recognition for the selfie shooter on the front. The phone will be equipped with a 4500 mAh battery and will charge quickly with 33 W wired (which gives the battery a 100% charge after 70 minutes) and with 15 W during wireless charging.

The Nothing Phone (1) offers reverse wireless charging

You can also share some of your phone’s battery power with other poor, unlucky souls thanks to the reverse wireless charging feature. The base model will be available from Nothing’s London newsstand from 16 July for €469. The company’s website will start selling the handset on July 21.
Nothing released the first commercial for the Nothing Phone (1) yesterday, starring what the company calls its Glyph display. It is a series of lights on the back of the device that turn on when a notification is received. The Glyph also acts as a progress bar showing how much of the phone’s battery has been charged. The light system can be used to alert the user to the identity of the person calling.

You can watch the introduction of the Nothing Phone (1) by watching a 37-minute video hosted by Nothing and One-Plus co-founder Carl Pei (who is also CEO of Nothing). Pei, who has the best Twitter handle of all time (@getpeid), said Nothing wanted to do anything else. So instead of just designing a phone with specs that look great on paper, instinct and intuition were used.

To make sure they were on the right track, Pei asked if the Nothing Phone was something the team would be interested in as consumers. If they saw their own product in the store, would they feel compelled to pick it up and test it? And Pei asked if this was a product that those working on the device would be proud to share with friends and family.

Pei is clearly a smart guy, and when you see him talking about the Nothing Phone (1) you get the impression that not only is he proud of the new device, but that this is only the beginning – not of nothing – but the start of something.

The unveiling doesn’t have the excitement or drama of Steve Jobs’ iPhone unveiling. It’s also not as technical as Jon Rubinstein’s introduction of the Palm Pre. But listening to Pei is always interesting and having him explain how the Nothing Phone was made is worth watching the video in its entirety.

Nothing CEO Pei doesn’t like putting a skin over the Android OS

Pei and Pete Lau co-created OnePlus, which launched its first phone, the OnePlus One, in April 2014. And over the years, OnePlus has become a legitimate player in the smartphone industry. Lightning usually doesn’t strike twice, but judging by early reactions on the internet, it seems that the Nothing Phone (1) has caught the attention of some smartphone enthusiasts looking for something new.

Some corners had to be cut. The IP rating of 53 means the phone is protected against a water jet of less than 15 degrees from vertical and less than 60 degrees from vertical. It also offers limited protection against dust. This isn’t a phone that can get wet, so keep that in mind when making your purchase decision.

Pei also explained how he believes putting skins on Android slows things down. The CEO likes Android’s system apps as they are, and also says that Nothing’s controls are designed to work with products from third-party companies like Tesla. He notes that if you can’t find your Tesla in a parking space, you can use your Nothing Phone (1) to flash the lights in the car, or turn on the air conditioning on a hot day before getting in the car. .
