None’s debut smartphone, the Phone 1, will be powered by Qualcomm’s midrange Snapdragon 778G Plus processor, the company has confirmed to Input Mag That means the phone is unlikely to have the raw performance of a device equipped with a flagship Qualcomm processor like the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1.

Nothing tells founder Carl Pei Input Mag that the company chose the lower-spec chip because it believes it offers a better mix of price, performance, heat output and power consumption. Also, nothing says that the Plus variant of the 778G will support wireless and reverse wireless charging, features normally reserved for Qualcomm’s flagship chipsets. The Snapdragon 778G Plus also has a slightly higher CPU clock speed than the 778G before it.

While the images of the Phone 1 from Nothing focus on the white model, recent leaks suggest that a black version could also be added. Leaker Ishan Agarwal posted images of the second color on Twitter, which still seems to have the same illuminating light strips as the white model. Other rumored specs include a 6.55-inch 120Hz display, a 4,500mAh battery with 45W fast charging, and 8GB of RAM, according to 9to5Google

Although it won’t be officially launched until next month, there has been no hesitation in revealing the Phone 1’s features ahead of time. It showed off its design on the back earlier this month, gave an early preview to YouTuber Marques Brownlee to detail the glowing light strips on the back, and also confirmed the phone won’t get a US launch (it’s targeting Europe). At this rate, the only details yet to be announced on July 12 are the price and release date.
