The launch event for Nothing's inaugural Android device, the phone (1), now has a concrete date in 2022. Carl Pei's new OEM asserts that it will undo much of the monotony that it perceives as having taken over in the smartphone market as of late. However, should a new leak prove accurate, it will match flagships from another player in this space in one respect: its power brick.

Carl Pei's new tech brand Nothing is slated to launch a first-gen Android mobile device with an "iconic" transparent design that puts its wireless charging coil on show. However, the phone(1) will need to charge via something like USB type-C as well, which is where its latest leak comes in. 91Mobiles claims to know what its top rate will be based on new documentation it claims to have found.

It consists of registrations allegedly made by Nothing Technology with the safety regulator TÜV SÜD. They approve the new OEM to ship a power brick (or "switching power supply unit") that may or may not be marketed as the power(45W) accessory.

This possible product name gives a hint as to the top rate it supports: 20V/2.25A, or 45 watts (W). It also supports the PPS standard of 3.3-11V/4.05A (44.55W at most), which puts it on par with Samsung's fastest power brick for smartphones.

This, of course, has led to speculation that the phone(1) will debut with the same charging profile. This (ironically enough) would fall short of potential rivals from brands such as OnePlus and OPPO, yet would equal the best Samsung can do and also exceed that of others such as Google.

Should that be the case, it will now be interesting to see if this power(45W) brick will come with a new phone (1) out of the box or end up as an optional purchase.
