A week ago, the Twitter account of Nothing, Carl Pei’s new company, summed up the details it had officially confirmed for its first phone. He ended by saying the announcement was “very close”. A few hours ago, I followed that up with a simple tweet: “This week.”
It’s not clear what day yet – not today (the world is now busy with Apple’s annual developer conference), but we should get confirmation soon enough.
The company has already revealed its launch partners for Nothing Phone (1): O2 in the UK, Deutsche Telekom in Germany, and Flipkart in India.
Note that even if the phone is revealed this week, the leaked information indicates that sales will start next month, July 21, specifically. It is rumored that the price will be around 500 euros ($535).
Officially, the phone (1) will have a recycled aluminum body, a transparent back, wireless charging, and an unnamed Snapdragon chipset.
Unofficially, an informed source said that the phone will have a 6.55-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and it will be a flat screen.
It should have a high refresh rate, but the exact number is not entirely clear. Note that the previous leak claimed a diagonal of 6.43 inches, so unofficial information may be inaccurate to say the least.
