Nothing Phone 1: New smartphone with an illuminated back

With its illuminated back and contemporary technology, the Nothing Phone 1 is intended to appeal to fashion-conscious buyers.

Oneplus co-founder Carl Pei has decided to launch his own smartphones after leaving the Chinese manufacturer. The first device called Nothing Phone 1 is now available and convinces with an idiosyncratic design decision: the transparent back is illuminated by a strip of light. The Glyph-baptized lighting should shine to match the ringtones, and app developers can also access the Nothing Phone 1’s LEDs.
