Recently the London-based company Nothing announced Flipkart as its key sales partner for Nothing Phone 1 in India. Today the company has released a sneak peek of the design inspiration and approach for its first smartphone phone (1).
In an interview, Tom Howard, Nothing’s Head of Design discussed about the design and build of the upcoming smartphone Nothing Phone 1. According to the interview, the device will carry transparent design language similar to Nothing Ear 1 TWS earphones that was released last year. As per the company its aim is to reintroduce excitement and optimism to the industry. And their distinct design identity is consistent across all products and plays with transparency, but designers and engineers are fighting an uphill battle. Apart from that, the phone will support wireless charging. “we started to sketch different layouts that broke away from typical Android phones, choosing the wireless charging coil as our hero among the hundreds of components, and played with it like a puzzle,” he said.
The phone’s manufacturing process was described by Howard as a “jigsaw puzzle,” with cameras, charging coils, and other components being highlighted. Custom wallpapers, widgets, sounds, and Nothing OS, which includes a custom launcher, are expected to be included in the smartphone.
‘There are over 400 components in a smartphone, assembled in layers. We wanted to celebrate the “good ones”, the things we thought were really interesting to emphasise’ he quoted.
The design is said to be inspired by Massimo Vignelli’s New York subway map and the way he connected a complex system and made it look like art.
Ahead of the official announcement of Nothing Phone (1) a new leak suggests that Nothing Phone 1 will be released on July 21. The smartphone’s price has also been revealed. The Nothing Phone 1 will most likely be a mid-range device. The smartphone could cost around EUR 500, according to the report (roughly Rs 41,400).
