The recently announced launch of another mobile brand in India has grabbed the attention of the tech-savvy in India. After the announcement by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, the phone has already got ample searches on Google and flooded YouTube. The intrigued buyers have set their expectations to experience something new out of the dull, boring smartphones with nothing really new add-ons in the smartphone devices.
Pie claims, "Nothing android phones that are bringing in some changes in how a phone is built". The user will definitely experience a new set of transparent phones, where the phones will have all new transparent design concepts that lets one almost see inside the phone. While that does not give the user any additional value, it certainly makes the phone look different. With Nothing phone (1), the company has made the rear panel fully transparent within the very iPhonesque aluminium frame of the phone.
Well, It might have intrigued you with the new feature with plenty of questions, but the answer to your major concern, the user will not be exposed to all the circuitry and processors inside the device. The nothing phone has put in extra efforts to ensure the users praise the design of the phone. It has ensured the innards are presentable — so that the user ends up with a view of the wireless charging coil, a lot of good-looking panels and, of course, some screws.
Nothing has launched the Glyph interface where the user will experience strips of LED on the panel, making it a complete package in itself with all new designs and features. Another significant feature includes that the user can sync with the LED strips in different combinations. This means you can set different Glyph notes for different contacts and types of messages. And when on silent, the lights themselves will tell you who is calling. Also, you can sync your music with the LED lights and make your phone look like miniature wedding tableaux.
The phone will be in the mid-range segment with the starting price of Rs 32,999 going up all the way to Rs 38,999 for the 12GB RAM+256GB version.
