Any phone (1) can’t launch with Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chip

Despite a complete design reveal and a closer look at the Glyph interface lights on the back, the specifications of the much-awaited Nothing Phone (1) have long remained a mystery. Now a few weeks away from its launch, we have our first leak which suggests that the phone (1) could be powered by Snapdragon 778G+ chip.

A tweet by trusted tipster Mukul Sharma (@ list of items) reveals that the phone (1) will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset. The chipset appears to be an upgraded version of the regular Snapdragon 778G but is not the latest in the series, which will be the recent Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.

The Snapdragon 778G+ chip will reportedly house the primary performance core at 2.52GH and Adreno 642 GPU for graphical tasks. The leak also mentions that the Nothing phone may come with (1) Android 12 out of the box and 8GB RAM.

In other news, we recently learned that the Nothing Phone (1) will not sell in the US, at least for now, and the brand has chosen to launch the device only in Asian and European markets for now.

Nothing Calls (1): What We Know So Far

The Nothing Phone (1), which is launching next month on July 12, will come with a semi-transparent back design with brand new Glyph interface lights. The phone is now tipped to be powered by the upper mid-range Snapdragon 778G+ chip.

Along with this, it is also expected that the phone will support both wired and wireless charging, and will also come with dual-cameras on the rear and a single front facing camera in the top-left punch-hole cutout. We should know more about the device soon in the weeks ahead of the launch.
