Nothing phone (1) will be a mid-range phone. Its sale will be based on invitations

So far, Nothing has kept a wave of mystery surrounding its first phone, phone (1), rather talking about it on a philosophical level, about how it will change the “boring” mobile phone market. Recently, the “lights” on the back of the phone were revealed, and today we find for the first time concrete information about its configuration, but not from official sources. Someone has already tested the phone with GeekBench, the results being recorded in the application’s database. However, there is some official information about the phone: it will be launched through an invitation system, just like the original OnePlus One.

Nothing phone (1) uses a 2021 mid-range processor

The listing on GeekBench reveals some hardware details about Nothing phone (1), such as the processor used and the amount of RAM. We are dealing with a high-end mid-range phone with a processor from last year: Snapdragon 778+, the improved version of the original 778 model, with slightly higher frequencies, at 2.51 GHz for the main core. This chip also uses a decent Adreno 642L GPU to run the latest video games on high settings. In terms of RAM, we only have 8 GB. It is unclear if there will be a 12 GB version. Meanwhile, Qualcomm has announced Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, the newest and most powerful model.

The scores are not exactly impressive, but they are in line with other phones equipped with the same chipset: 797 points for the single-core test and 2,803 points for the multi-core test. The phone comes with Android 12 on board, as we would expect for a smartphone launched in the summer of 2022 (the official launch date is July 12).

However, not everyone will be able to order this phone on the first day. For example, in the US, the phone will not be launched at all, being offered only in a pilot program to a few “testers”. Then, for Europe, Nothing will apply the same phone (1) strategy we saw in the first generation of OnePlus: invitations to place an order. This suggests that Nothing does not yet have production lines to cover possible demand. Previously, OnePlus One sales were open to the general public a few months after launch.
