Nothing Phone 1 comes with a custom-tuned Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+

Nothing Phone 1 comes with a custom-tuned Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+: Before its unveiling on July 12, it was announced that the Nothing Phone 1 would include a specially customized Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ processor. Days after Nothing began offering invite-only pre-orders for its first phone; a new development has occurred.

The Nothing Phone 1 will also have a transparent back to stand out when it hits the market. The smartphone has an eye-catching LED design as well. Last year, Nothing, a new technology startup founded by OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei, debuted the Nothing Ear 1, its first pair of truly wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds.

Carl Pei told Input Mag that the Snapdragon 778G+ SoC would be used in the Nothing Phone 1, supporting recent claims.

The Snapdragon processor, a minor improvement over the Snapdragon 778G, was prominently revealed in October last year. However, it is claimed that Qualcomm enhanced the processor, particularly for the Nothing Phone 1, to allow wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.

To balance “performance, power consumption, and cost,” Pei explained why Nothing chose the mid-range processor over a high-end one like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or the newly released Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.

In response to Ray Wong of Input, the CEO also reinforced his position on using the Snapdragon 778G+ SoC in a tweet.

The Nothing Phone 1’s price has not yet been disclosed in full. But a recent source said that the forthcoming phone would cost less than $500. (roughly Rs. 39,500).

The Snapdragon 778G+ SoC’s availability is unlikely to be helpful. Nothing catches the attention of customers wishing to upgrade to high-end specs. The UK-based business, however, hopes to draw in specific clients by providing the transparent back and the LED-powered Glyph interface.

According to several renderings that have recently surfaced in publications, the Nothing Phone 1 will be available in Black and White. It has also been verified that the phone has two back cameras.

There are still a few days until Nothing Phone 1’s official release. However, Pei’s marketing strategies from his time at OnePlus make it possible that we may see some more teases before the official announcement, both from within the business and from the outside.
