Glyph Interface

Nothing like you’ve seen before, the Glyph Interface is a new way of communicating to help minimise screen time. Unique light patterns made up of 900 LEDs indicate who’s calling and signals app notifications, charging status and more. Simply pair individual contacts to a ringtone, each with a unique Glyph pattern, to never miss what’s truly important.

For quieter focus, the Flip to Glyph feature triggers silent, lights-only notifications by placing Phone (1) with the Glyph Interface face up.

Design

Nothing Phone (1) features a transparent back with a unique design composed of over 400 components. Its 100% recycled aluminium frame makes it light and robust, while over 50% of the phone’s plastic components are made with bio-based or post-consumer recycled materials – an industry leading percentage.

Dual-side Gorilla Glass 5 provides toughness, whilst advanced vibration motors make touch responses life-like. The symmetrical bezels and aluminium frame add elegance, lightness and durability.

Nothing OS

Nothing OS delivers only the best of Android with no bloatware. Hardware and software speak a single visual language, with bespoke widgets, fonts, sounds and wallpapers, all designed in-house.

The Nothing Ecosystem is the home for all your favourite tech. No more separate apps. Control third party products from Phone (1)’s Quick Settings as easily as Nothing ones, starting with Tesla. Unlock doors, turn on AC, see miles left and more. More third-party brand integrations to be announced soon.

Power is delivered where it’s needed most with smart software that learns which apps are your favourite. Your most-used apps load super-fast, whilst the rest are frozen to save battery.

50MP Dual Cameras

Time to unlearn that more cameras mean better quality photos and videos. Phone (1)’s dual camera has two advanced 50 MP sensors, with the main camera powered by the flagship Sony IMX766.

The wide ƒ/1.8 aperture, dual image stabilisation and 10-bit colour videos gives you everything you need to shoot exceptionally stable, true-to-life and brilliantly detailed content. Intelligent features like Night Mode and Scene Detection tailor the perfect settings for every frame, doing the work for you.

Set the Glyph Interface to full brightness and illuminate close-up subjects with a gentle light. It’s a portable ring-light, without the harshness of flash.

Display

1 billion colours. Every hue, powerfully true-to-life with a 6.55” OLED display and HDR10+. Richer colour and deeper contrasts are tuned to each scene. An adaptive 120Hz refresh rate ensures irresistibly responsive interactions, while being reassuringly power-efficient.

Performance

Game Mode precisely matches sound to graphics and minimises notifications for captivating, immersive gaming.

Limited Edt

Nothing also collaborated with Limited Edt as part of a limited drop programme joining the likes of other premium fashion boutique lifestyle stores across the world such as Selfridges, GQ, Lane Crawford, Eslite, Carnival, Commonwealth, and Crossover.

Despite being the first of its kind for Limited Edt, the limited drop pre-orders were quickly snapped up by the public.
