Nothing Phone (1) is a mid-range smartphone with a translucent design.

The design of the Nothing Phone (1) is undoubtedly the first thing that draws the attention, since it is available in basic white or black with a striking metal frame in silver or black. Aside from that, the device’s backside is unlike anything you’ve seen before. It is protected by a piece of Gorilla Glass 5 that allows consumers to see inside the smartphone. The front of the phone has a punch-hole camera and an equal bezel around the display on all sides. According to the manufacturer, the durable frame is composed entirely of recyclable aluminum.

Furthermore, it’s worth noting that the most crucial component of Nothing is the Glyph Interface, a lighting feature that consists of 900 micro LEDs on the device’s back as well as beneath the transparent glass surface. This isn’t just a cool flashy feature; it can also tell who’s calling, serve as a notification light or charge status indicator and is a new way of communication to help reduce the screen time.

On top of that, you may assign customized light patterns to your contacts and utilize it in silent mode to determine whether an email or WhatsApp message has arrived. When the phone is flipped over, it immediately enters silent mode and alerts you with light symbols that may be customized individually. Meanwhile, it was also reported that the manufacturer still has additional plans for the lighting system in the near future.

The Nothing Phone (1) is offered in two configurations, 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM will cost at RM2,399 while 12GB RAM and 256GB ROM is listed at RM2,699.
