We already know that Carl Pie’s Nothing will be bringing its first smartphone to the market soon but new information has arrived now that suggests that the launch could take place on July 21. What’s more; another report has confirmed that the device will come with a transparent rear surface.
When it comes out, the Nothing Phone (1) is speculated to be priced at 500 Euros. That will seemingly be the price of the base model and we don’t know any details about its RAM and storage configurations. Nothing founder Pei has, moreover, teased in a tweet that this device could arrive with wireless charging support as well.
Nothing’s first product on the market was the Ear (1), a set of wireless earbuds with up to 34 hours of total battery life. Priced at $99, they come with active noise cancellation and are most notable for their transparent design.
So it’s not a surprise that the Nothing Phone (1) is also being touted to grab a transparent design, like the one featured in the design sketch posted above. It comes from a website named Wallpaper, which spoke with Pei and Nothing’s head of design Tom Howard.
“From an industry perspective, you’re looking at components that the end user normally never sees, so you almost have to overhaul the entire manufacturing process in order to highlight them,” said Howard about the process of building a transparent smartphone. He also said that the USP of the company’s approach is the intrinsic beauty and intricacy of consumer electronics.
Information about the Nothing Phone (1)’s price and possible July 21 launch has come from the German publication All Round PC. We’re awaiting more official details on the matter, which should arrive soon.
