The former director of OnePlus is once again making a smartphone. This is of course going to make people take notice. The Nothing Phone (1) sets out to do many things differently and already looks quite cool with the LEDs on its rear.
The Phone 1’s marquee feature, the glyph notifications, are kind of a gimmick — but they’re ultimately harmless. It’s part of the phone’s unique style, which some people (maybe the kind who own NFTs and drive Teslas) will find appealing.
The Glyph Interface is a lighting feature comprising 900 micro LEDs on the device's back and likewise beneath the transparent glass panel. This means you have to turn it on its back when placing it on a table which is something I personally really do.
Nothing Phone (1) ships in an eco-friendly box made from recycled fiber. It gets destroyed upon opening, and unless you tape it back, it will never look the same.
Inside, you will find the Nothing Phone (1), a USB-C cable, and a very cool SIM ejection tool.
There is no charger inside the box. The phone supports USB-PD 3.0, so you can use any PD charger you have at your home.

This is a new phone from a new phone company that has attracted the attention of Smartphone users because of its aesthetic feel. It resembles iPhone looking at it from afar.
Once again, hope you learned something today from my little closet.
