OnePlus’ co-founder Carl Pei’s technology startup Nothing entered the market last year with the launch of its first true wireless earbuds, Nothing Ear (1). Earlier this year, the company announced its plans to enter the smartphone market. The startup confirmed that it will launch its first smartphone, dubbed as Nothing phone (1), later this year. Now a new detail about the upcoming Nothing smartphone has surfaced online.
Nothing Phone (1) to support 45W fast charging
Earlier this week, Nothing confirmed that it will launch its first smartphone the Nothing Phone (1) in India on July 12. Now ahead of the official launch the upcoming smartphone has received TUV certification. The certification reveals that the yet-to-launch Nothing Phone (1) will come with 45W fast charging support. The listing also suggests that the company will ship the smartphone with a charger. As per the listing, the Nothing charger adapter is said to be compatible with the PPS charging standard. This means that users can also fast charge other devices like notebooks and Android smartphones using the charge.
Nothing Phone (1) design
The company has already confirmed that the Nothing Phone (1) will follow the same design philosophy as the Nothing Ear (1) TWS. This means that the smartphone will come with a translucent design.
