Nothing has finally launched the Phone (1) after engaging in OnePlus levels of hype to promote the smartphone. While Nothing pushes the Phone (1) through an invite-only system, it is already possible to purchase freely. Thankfully, Nothing has confirmed the smartphone's full specifications, along with when it will start shipping pre-orders.

The Nothing Phone (1) has arrived, although Arun Maini (Mrwhosetheboss) suggests that the company is not allowing anyone to publish full reviews yet. Still, the full Nothing Phone (1) specification sheet has landed, which is as follows:

Nothing Phone (1)
SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+
Storage 128 GB/256 GB UFS 3.1 (un-expandable)
Display 6.55-inch AMOLED
2,400 x 1,080 pixels/120 Hz refresh rate
500 cd/m² typical brightness/1,200 cd/m² peak brightness
Battery 4,500 mAh
33 W wired/15 W Qi wireless/5 W reverse wireless charging
Cameras 50 MP Sony IMX766 (24 mm/ƒ/1.88/EIS/OIS)

16 MP Sony IMX471 (ƒ/2.45)
Dimensions 158.5 x 75.9 x 10.07 mm
Weight 198 g

Additionally, the Nothing Phone (1) should receive at least 3 years of OS updates and 4 years of security updates, fast becoming the standard for Android OEMs. Unsurprisingly, Nothing has applied its 'Nothing OS', a skin on top of Android 12. According to The Tech Chap, Nothing has not included any bloatware, unlike many other Android OEMs, which is always nice to see.

Surprisingly, the Nothing Phone (1) is already available outside Nothing's invite-only system. Specifically, Amazon UK is selling all but the entry-level configuration, which retails for £399 with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Currently, Amazon UK is accepting pre-orders for both 256 GB of storage configurations, which should start shipping on July 21.
