Nothing Phone (1) will have a launch event on July 12. Nothing has been revealed about the device’s back panel design ahead of the official launch event, at which the company will introduce its first smartphone to the world. The smartphone’s back panel design, which was revealed yesterday, highlighted the transparent shell. Nothing also held a live event in Switzerland for a select group of journalists to see the Phone (1).
In a video posted by YouTuber Rafael Zeier, the Nothing smartphone is shown inside a transparent glass box. It also emphasizes some of the phone’s unique design features, such as some glowing and light-up components.
Design Showcased of Nothing Phone (1)
The Nothing Phone (1) will be launched for the first time in the world on July 12th. Before its launch, the device’s design was shown in Switzerland. The back panel of the phone is shown in Zeier’s video, which the company has previously revealed through official renders.
A key new design detail revealed in the video was the glowing lights that lit up in certain areas at the back of the device. The camera module has lights in the top right corner and at the bottom.
It is unknown what causes these lights. These could be notification lights that illuminate when you receive a message, a call, or another type of notification.
In the past, we’ve seen a lot of smartphones with this feature. Some smartphones use the display’s edges, while others have dedicated hardware. The edges of devices like the OnePlus 10 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra light up when a user receives a notification. In India, Oppo introduced the Reno 7 and F21 Pro series, which include the Orbit Light feature, which illuminates the ring around the camera sensor when a notification is received.
It will be interesting to see if Nothing, like some of its competitors, allows users to customize the color of the lights. We’ll have to wait for official word to get official confirmation.
On July 12th, The Phone (1) will officially launch. It will have a Snapdragon processor, wireless charging support, and come pre-installed with the Android 12-based Nothing OS. The specifications of the device have also been revealed.
