Nothing Phone 1 video shows how the back lighting will work

22 June 2022 0

Last week, we first go to see Nothing Phone 1's lighting back panel in action through a couple of videos. It is now time for our first hands-on video featuring the smartphone. This is coming from Marques Brownlee aka MKBHD, a popular tech YouTuber, who got his hands on the first Nothing Android smartphone. His video offers a good look at the device and also shows how the glowing back is more than just an aesthetic element.

The Nothing Phone 1 features about 900 LEDs that come together to make up the whole glowing strip on its back. The strip is available around the camera module and wireless charging coil. There is one exclamation mark-like strip towards the bottom and a dash-like strip in the top right corner. These strips glow together whenever there is an incoming call or notification but that is not all that they do.

Whenever you are using wireless or reverse wireless charging, only the strip in the center glows. The exclamation mark-like strip doubles up as a charging progress bar. The good thing is that it does not glow permanently and you only need to wiggle the phone a bit to see how much charging has been completed. You can light up all the strips to use them as a fill light for the camera while shooting videos or clicking photos. There is also Red light to alert others when the phone is recording.

The phone comes with 10 ringtones that are synced with the LED light pattern. It means when you will set any of these as your device's ringtone, LED strips will glow up in a pattern matching the ringtone. These ringtones are accessible through a dedicated setting called Glyph Interface. The Nothing Phone 1 is set to launch on July 12th and we can expect more details to become public about this secretive device.

In the meantime, check out the Nothing Phone 1 hands-on video:
