What you must understand

  • Carl Pei has stated that the Noting phone (1) chipset will be used when it is finally released.
  • Pei claims that the Snapdragon 778G+ will power the phone (1).
  • In a recent tweet, Pei asserts that the mid-range chipset is the “best balanced option.”
  • In a pair of pictures, a black colorway has also been made visible.

The most anticipated smartphone, the None phone (1), is scheduled to go on sale on July 12. We have seen a lot of what to anticipate from the brand-new smartphone over the past few weeks coming up to the unveiling. Numerous aspects have previously been confirmed by nothing, and Carl Pei has now verified the device’s CPU.


Pei informed Input that a Snapdragon 778G+ chipset would be included in the phone (1). Kryo 670 CPU and Adreno 642L GPU are both components of Qualcomm’s 7-series octa-core processor. The aforementioned SoC is an improved version of the Snapdragon 778G, which is currently used in devices like the Realme GT Master Edition 5G and Samsung Galaxy A73 5G. This equates to marginally faster clock rates.

Pei goes on to discuss the benefits of choosing a mid-range chipset over a premium processor like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. In the long run, he thinks, using the new 778G+ chipset would result in cost savings in exchange for improved performance and power consumption. Pei also thinks that mid-range phones have advanced to the point where they can easily do daily chores. He continues by saying that despite their high cost, the power-hungry premium processors aren’t producing results that are very spectacular.

Pei points out that the chipset is more power-efficient, which affects the phone’s battery life (1). According to claims, the SoC will outperform its predecessor in terms of performance, heat dissipation, and energy efficiency by up to 30%.


The phone receives additional improvements because to the 778G+ processor (1). It makes the phone capable of wireless and reverse wireless charging (1), features that are typically seen in the chipset manufacturer’s flagship SoC(s).

In response, Pei tweeted a picture with the caption, “Most balanced choice: Snapdragon 778G+ SoC.” Despite this, phone (1) is not the first device to choose the Snapdragon 778G+ CPU; devices such the Motorola Edge 30 and Xiaomi Civil 1S already use this chip.

It appears the first phone from Nothing won’t quite compete with the best Android smartphones like the OnePlus 10 Pro or the Galaxy S22 Ultra in light of Carl Pei’s confirmation of the latest Qualcomm CPU. However, based on what we know about the Nothing phone (1), the anticipated price is most likely below $500; as a result, we should be expecting a mid-range gadget with the new 7-series processor from Qualcomm to perform well in all areas.


The phone (1) has a translucent design similar to ear (1), the company’s first product unveiled last year, in addition to the SoC. The Glyph interface, which is supported by several LED lights (around 900, to be exact) on the back of the translucent phone and is intended to breathe fresh life into notification lights, is one remarkable feature to look forward to on the phone (1).

While there are several pictures of the phone (1) in white, Roland Quandt of WinFuture just tweeted about a new black color scheme that looks more striking with the contrasting LEDs.

It is disappointing to learn that the intriguing new features won’t be available in the United States, even as they are generating excitement on the phone (1) prior to the debut. The company intends to introduce the smartphone in a few niche areas, including the United Kingdom, Europe, and India.
