Nothing Phone 1 will be launched on the 12th of July, so we're less than 10 days away from the event, but as expected details about the handset continue to emerge online. The Nothing Phone 1 was accidentally listed on Amazon, revealing every last bit of information about the handset, including the price. To be honest, it wasn't an accident, it's a PR move to create more hype for the handset.
We also have the first look at the official case for the phone, and no surprises here. It's a transparent TPU case that doesn't hide the main USP of the handset. So moving on to other interesting bits and that's the price. The Nothing Phone 1 is a mid-range handset with some flagship bits and pieces such as this glyph interface at the back and a uniform bezel look at the front. But what makes it a midrange handset is its chipset and the cameras. So the success of this handset depends a lot on how Nothing decides to price it and Amazon Germany listing shows that the phone will be available in two configurations, and it reveals the company will sell the phone for €469.99 with 8/128 GB or €549.99 with 12/256 GB variant.
Interestingly, the handset is expected to cost even less in India which is going to be its biggest market because Nothing is manufacturing the handset in the country, but unfortunately, we don't have the Indian pricing just yet. Do note that the device will not be available in North America. A lot of you were also wondering is Nothing going to follow the same no charger bandwagon? Well, the answer is yes. The listing also confirms that the phone will have a USB cable and a screen protector inside the box, which is a nice addition but providing no charger would upset many considering the phone does support 45W of fast charging. Apple and then Samsung tried to sell the public on the idea that they're thinking about the environment, blah, blah, blah, and expect Nothing to do the same, but the reality is it's just another way to cut costs and save them some money.
Also, here are the full specifications of the handset. The rear camera is actually 50MP with an f1.8 aperture and a 16MP ultrawide camera. We don't know whether this 50MP sensor is from Samsung or Sony but it can do 4K video recording at 60 fps. Both the front and back will have Gorilla glass protection but again we don't which type of Gorilla glass it exactly is. Also, the phone does have wireless charging which is something rather unusual for midrangers.
