Almost everyone is hoping that the Nothing Phone (1) will use the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC, but it won’t, it seems. The Nothing Phone (1) appeared on Geekbench, and shared a different story.
nothing phone (1) can’t use Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC
So, what will it use the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 for? not good. It will still be a mid-range smartphone, but with a different SoC. Geekbench claims that the Snapdragon 778G+ will be used instead of the Snapdragon 7 gen 1.
It’s a really attractive mid-range chip, but it’s older and inferior to the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. Some of you may find this disappointing, although as I said, it is actually an attractive mid-range processor.
The device appeared on Geekbench with the model number ‘Nothing A063’, and it managed to score 797 points in the single-core test and 2,803 in the multi-core test. Take these results with a grain of salt, however, as this is a pre-release unit.
The device will pack in 8GB of RAM
In any case, Geekbench also confirms that the device will ship with Android 12 out of the box, and will include 8GB of RAM. This could also be the only variant of the device, unless something is opted for a 6GB or 12GB RAM model, which is unlikely.
Now, it is worth noting that the phone will include Nothing OS on top of Android 12. That OS will be closer to stock Android, but will include the Nothing Launcher, and some additional customization, of course.
The device is expected to feature a 120Hz display, as mentioned in a recent video from Nothing. 45W fast wired charging is also expected, while the device will include three cameras.
The Nothing Phone (1) will first be sold via an invitation system. He is also not sure. However, we are not entirely sure how this will work. The device will go official on July 12, and it doesn’t appear to be coming to the US.
