It was all mystery and parakeets until Nothing finally gave us a glimpse of his phone (1). It wasn’t even an official reveal… just a few shots of the phone from the back, then videos from a promo event in Switzerland (the land of banks and milk chocolate) started popping up.
If you’ve been following Nothing for the past few months, you’re familiar with the company’s first product: the Nothing Ear earbuds (1). A solid pair of noise-cancelling earphones, sure, but the most interesting thing is the transparent design.
Of course, nothing wants to keep up with this trend with its first phone, because the back is completely transparent. Unfortunately, most of the components are tucked away under bolt-on plates, and even the ribbon cables and wireless charging coil look clean and sophisticated.
The Nothing Phone (1)
And you? Do you like the design? Do you find it distracting or surprisingly fresh? We’ve yet to see the phone in its full glory (the official event is scheduled for July 12), but since phones look nearly identical from the front, there’s not much that can change in appearance. So, is the Nothing Phone (1) hot or not?
