The Nothing Phone 1 is coming on July 12, 2022 and ahead of the launch, the company’s founding CEO has revealed the chipset used in the smartphone. in conversation with inputmag.com, Carl Pei has confirmed that the Nothing Phone 1 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset, which is a relatively new chipset based on TSMC’s 6nm manufacturing technology.

Pei informed the publication that Qualcomm has added two features to the Snapdragon 778G+ specifically for the Nothing Phone 1. These include wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. Additionally, the former co-founder of OnePlus has also mentioned the reason behind going for a mid-range processor. Since the Snapdragon 778G+ offers a balance between performance, power consumption and cost, it is ideal for the Nothing Phone 1.

Pei believes that the performance of the smartphone has reached a point where it is good enough for daily tasks. Additionally, using a flagship chipset like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will reduce the effective battery life and increase the price of the device. As of now, the Nothing Phone 1 is expected to come with a price tag of $500.
