Nothing Introduces Phone (1) – The Gateway To A New Product Ecosystem

Nothing has introduced the Phone (1), its first smartphone and the gateway to its future connected and open product ecosystem.

Featuring the innovative Glyph Interface, a 50 MP dual camera, refined Nothing OS, 120Hz OLED display and custom-built Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset, Nothing Phone (1) delivers speed and a smooth experience from $769 SGD.

With a 200,000+ pre-order waitlist, and bids over $3,000 USD for the first 100 serialised units, it’s one of the most anticipated tech products in years.

“We designed Phone (1) as a product we’d be proud to share with friends and family,” said Carl Pei, CEO and Co-founder of Nothing.

“This simple principle helped us wander off the beaten path, tune into our instincts, and create an experience that hopefully marks the start of change in a stagnant industry.”

The Glyph Interface is a new way of communicating to help minimise screen time. Unique light patterns made up of 900 LEDs indicate who’s calling and signal app notifications, charging status and more.


You can pair individual contacts to a ringtone with a unique Glyph pattern to never miss what’s truly important.

For quieter focus, the Flip to Glyph feature triggers silent, lights-only notifications by placing Phone (1) with the Glyph Interface face up.

Nothing Phone (1) features a transparent back with a unique design of over 400 components. Its 100% recycled aluminium frame makes it light and robust, while over 50% of the phone’s plastic components are made with bio-based or post-consumer recycled materials – an industry-leading percentage.

Dual-side Gorilla Glass 5 provides toughness, whilst advanced vibration motors make touch responses life-like. The symmetrical bezels and aluminium frame adds elegance, lightness and durability.

Phone (1)’s dual camera has two advanced 50 MP sensors, with the main camera powered by the flagship Sony IMX766.

The wide ƒ/1.8 aperture, dual image stabilisation and 10-bit colour videos give you everything you need to shoot exceptionally stable, true-to-life and brilliantly detailed content.

Intelligent features like Night Mode and Scene Detection tailor the perfect settings for every frame, doing the work for you.

Set the Glyph Interface to full brightness and illuminate close-up subjects with a gentle light. It’s a portable ring-light, without the harshness of the flash.


The phone features a 6.55” OLED display and HDR10+. Richer colours and deeper contrasts are tuned to each scene. An adaptive 120Hz refresh rate ensures irresistibly responsive interactions while being reassuringly power-efficient.

Charge fast and charge wirelessly. Get 18 hours of use with every charge, and two days on standby. Reach 50% power in just 30 minutes of charge.

Power accessories like Nothing Ear (1) with 5W reverse charge. The charging coil Glyph even lights up to indicate reverse charging is happening.

The Phone (1) is available in both white and black, with three models to choose from: 8GB/128GB ($769 SGD), 8GB/256GB ($869 SGD), and the 12GB/256GB ($949 SGD).

Pre-orders for Nothing Phone (1) start on 5 Aug 2022 to 12 Aug 2022. Open sales for Nothing Phone (1) start on 13 August 2022.
