The latest Nothing phone (1) render takes Carl Pei's cryptic teaser into account
Carl Pei confirmed that his new brand Nothing would have a smartphone to launch during a recently-completed 2022 keynote. However, the executive did not reveal the device in any particular detail, besides a mystery shot that might imply where some components might go: for example, the largest and most central of them might indicate a place for a wireless charging coil.
Now, Ben Geskin has taken this theory and run with it, thereby generating an image of a phone to fit these potential rear-panel features. The result is a device with only 3 cameras - one in its central display punch-hole and the other 2 being all that can fit in the top-most C-like shape.
The back panel shown here is also styled as transparent enough to show the rest of its internals, as well as a red Snapdragon logo, in accordance with Nothing's design language to date. On the display side, it is depicted as having the Nothing OS homescreen shown earlier during the OEM's keynote.
Pei never specified when the real phone (1) would launch, although the Nothing website now indicates that it will occur some time during the summer of 2022. Meanwhile, it has reminded its fans that its upcoming round of "community investment" may start much sooner.
