Do you wish to buy the recently launched Nothing Phone 1? I'll go through some of its highlights in this blog. Please continue reading by scrolling down.

Carl Pei, a former employee of Oneplus, founded Nothing technology limited in 2020 in London. This company's debut smartphone is called Nothing phone 1. A unique design and glyphs on the back have made this phone the talk of the town.

We'll take a closer look at each feature one by one.


In terms of dimensions, Nothing (1) measures 159.2 x 75.8 x 8.3 mm. They used aluminum to make the sides of this phone. The phone is relatively lightweight. On the left are two volume buttons, and on the right is the power button. To ensure scratch resistance, the front and back panels are made of Gorilla glass 5. Under the transparent rear panel, LED glyphs are visible. This IP53-rated phone is splash and dust-resistant and is available in black and white.

What is a "Glyph interface"?

The rear panel blinking light function syncs with calls, SMS, and other alerts. Glyphs also indicate the charging status. The wonderful thing about glyphs is that you can customize the blink patterns for each call. Alternatively, you can enable the "flip-to-glyph" feature to receive notifications while doing something else. Unless you want to modify the color of the lights, they're fantastic! because there is no such alternative. You have to use white LED lights indefinitely. This panel also contains a red light indication for recording purposes and is not affected by glyph lights.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you may only use transparent covers if you want to show off your blinking glyphs.


Nothing 1 boasts a flexible OLED screen with a resolution of 1080x2400 pixels and a refresh rate ranging from 60 Hz to 120 Hz. The display produces colors with a depth of 10 bits and a brightness of up to 1200 nits.
