It was everything mystery and parakeets until Nothing finally showed us a glimpse of his phone (1). It wasn’t even an official reveal… just a few photos of the phone from the back, then videos of a promo event in Switzerland (the land of banks and milk chocolate) began to appear.
If you’ve been following Nothing for the past few months, you’re well aware of the company’s first product – the Nothing Ear (1) earplugs. A solid pair of noise-cancelling earphones, sure, but the most interesting thing is the transparent design.
Of course, nothing wants to keep up with this trend with its first phone, as the back is completely transparent. Unfortunately, most of the components are tucked away under bolt-on plates, and even the ribbon cables and wireless charging coil look clean and sophisticated.
The Nothing Phone (1)
And you? Do you like the design? Do you find it distracting or surprisingly fresh? We’ve yet to see the phone in its full glory (the official event is slated for July 12), but given that phones look nearly identical from the front, there’s not much that can change in appearance. So, is the Nothing Phone (1) hot or not?
