A transparent iPhone? No, it’s nothing – the most hyped Android in years

Have you seen the smartphone that looks like a transparent iPhone? It’s basically the Nothing Phone 1. Captained by Carl Pei, one of the co-founders of OnePlusNothing is a tech startup company with one product so far: a pair of $99 wireless earbuds, the so-called ear 1 – which have a unique see-through design and have premium features (such as active noise cancellation and support for wireless charging).

The Phone 1 is the company’s second product and its first smartphone. After months of teasing, nothing has given us our first glimpse of Phone 1 via YouTuber’s “hands-on” video SMEHD and by launching a official product page on her website. There is no word yet on how much the phone will cost 1, but nothing says it will go on sale on July 12.

Phone 1 is similar in overall design to an iPhone 13 (particularly in size and vertically stacked camera modules), but has a transparent back. However, its most unique feature is a notification system that relies on an integrated lighting system on the back of the smartphone – it looks very Tron-ish. The idea is that the back of the Phone 1 lights up, so you can see every time you get a notification or phone call, even if the screen is facing down.

Nothing’s first smartphone, the Phone 1, stands out from all other smartphones with its transparent design and its unique notification system that relies on light.


The lighting system is called the “glyph interface” and consists of 900 individual LED lights located on the back of the Phone 1. The lights are on the bottom of the Phone 1 near the USB-C charging port, like a circle around its wireless charging system (yes, it supports wireless charging), around its camera module, and in the top right corner (opposite the cameras) .

Depending on what the phone does – charging, wireless charging, or using the camera – determines which lighting portion of this glyph interface lights up. And there’s a section in the Phone 1’s Settings app that lets you customize and control these lights. You can program them, or specific light patterns, to signal different actions or messages. For example, you can assign a specific light pattern to a specific contact in your phone so that you can see who is calling or texting from the light pattern.
