Ever since Nothing confirmed the coming of its first smartphone a few months ago, most of us have been waiting for the launch date. The company promised a Summer launch and keeping up with the same, it has now revealed that the Nothing phone (1) will be launched next month.

The company has already confirmed that the phone (1) will feature a transparent design, much like the ear (1), and will show some internal components like the camera, wireless charging setup, and more. The design is also inspired by the 1972 New York Subway Map by Massimo Vignelli and Bob Noorda.
As for other confirmed details, it is expected to feature a Snapdragon chipset under the hood and run Nothing OS based on Android, possibly Android 12. The company has also released the Nothing Launcher for people to get a glimpse of the Nothing OS.
Specs-wise, not much is known. But, chances are that the phone (1) could be powered by the latest Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC, support 50MP rear cameras, have a 90Hz display, and support fast charging capabilities too. That said, it’s best to wait for the July 12 event to get a better idea of Nothing’s first smartphone. We will keep you posted on all the details.
