The cat is pretty much out of the bag. The design of the Nothing Phone (1) has been revealed, showing an interesting looking rear panel. The phone eschews the typical clean look you’ll find on most smartphones for a more industrial design. We are yet to see the front of the phone, but there is already a lot going on in the rear.
Based on what you’ve seen so far, do you like the design of the Nothing phone (1)?
The Nothing Phone (1) has been promoted for some time now, and the recent move to reveal the phone’s design ahead of possible leaks is the latest attempt to lure potential buyers. The company has teased that the phone will have a transparent rear feature, which is more or less available to us.
You don’t really get to see the internals of the phone, as they are carefully covered. Instead, the design shows how its internal components are arranged, with a large portion at the rear being taken as the wireless charging coil. There is also a dual-camera setup at the top left corner of the phone, which means that the phone will be one of the best budget Android phones out there. Several screws are visible all over the rear, making the device look like an unfinished prototype.
One surprising aspect of the design is the inclusion of LED strips, including the rings that surround the cameras, and the charging coil. This is not the first smartphone to have illuminated parts on the rear, although other examples are usually limited to the OEM logo. That said, it’s not clear what triggers the lights on the Nothing Phone (1), a detail we may have to wait to learn about at the launch event in July.
That said, if you want to be one of the first to get your hands on one, there are no plans to auction 100 units on June 21 through its partnership with StockX.
