Nothing will release its first smartphone Phone (1) next week in the Benelux region for 469 euros. The manufacturer announced this. This is the second product from the new manufacturer, after last year’s earplugs.
Nobody wants to distinguish their phone with some feature. On the back there are more than 900 LEDs that make it possible, among other things, to see the charging status of the phone and to read without looking at the screen on which the application gave a notification or from the caller. Nothing calls it an avatar interface.
Nothing OS contains two elements that the manufacturer wants to highlight. Quick setup makes it possible to operate a Tesla. This makes it possible to find out how many kilometers the car can drive on the remaining battery charge, can turn on the air conditioner and open the doors. It will soon integrate with other brands’ products, but so far no company has announced anything about it.
There is also an NFT Gallery to display the NFTs that users own. This can also be done via a widget on the phone’s home screen. To increase the software speed, the phone runs infrequently used apps in the background to make frequently used apps start faster.
