After several months of dropping mostly vague teasers on Twitter, building a buzz by essentially making fun of its future rivals at every opportunity, getting poetic about the challenges and advantages of transparent design, Nothing finally has announced the… announcement date of its rookie smartphone effort.
For example, the latest leak isn’t technically a leak at all, but rather a routine piece of information that a smartphone manufacturer has no real control over. As you probably know, all mobile devices must receive certain regulatory approvals before they can be sold anywhere, with some of these certifications often revealing important details that build further hype around an unreleased product.
Speaking of which, we can’t be sure just yet that the Nothing Phone (1) comes standard with the company’s first-party 45W charger… or, for that matter, any power adapter.
But if the price tag of $500 or so is rumored to stick, the 45W charging speeds alone should be enough to send your excitement levels through the roof. That is, after seeing things like the aforementioned transparent back, recycled aluminum center frame, Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, “no-chin” design and yes, the wireless charging capabilities have been officially confirmed.
