Like most people, when Karl made fun of Nothing phone, I was confused by the white emoji on that strange black background (1). Certainly that meant something. Or does it mean “nothing”? Now, knowing the company’s capabilities and the need to keep the hype train running, I’m convinced that the weird line drawings weren’t just randomly generated. Here are some ideas that immediately came to my mind.

The most widely distributed interpretation of the symbol came from Concept designer Ben Geskin.. Geskin’s design turned the C in the upper left corner into a bump on the camera, naturally lining up the rest of the symbols. There are several possibilities of this kind. First, the wireless charging coil on the back (which seems to be its main shape), along with the vertical lines below it, looks like Apple’s MagSafe connector. When displayed side by side, it looks like the following.

I’m sure it’s not possible to announce such a feature using the word MagSafe (which would violate Apple’s trademark), but Carl made the phone work seamlessly with other companies’ products. Mentioned the fact that it has been. Is it possible to attach a magnetic connector to the back of the Nothing phone (1)? Well, my realists say it’s very unlikely, but the idea of ​​putting a wireless charging coil on the back, visible through a transparent façade, sounds much more plausible.

Let’s take a look at the rendering of the Nothing phone (1) concept right next to Nothing ear (1). I have to admit that they look like part of the same product family!

But what about those lines? Well, your guess is as good as mine, but the diagonal and letter C in the upper right are very similar to the command prompt prefix. I’m reading the tea leaves clearly at this point, but Pei hinted at the fact that Nothing OS is lightweight, powerful, flexible, and black and white. It sounds like a command prompt from underneath the Tin Foil Hat, but I’m clearly farther away. At the same time, the vertical dots and dashes at the bottom look like the power and volume keys.

There are plenty of strange speculations about the back. Let’s move to the front of the device. Geskin’s concept shows a drilling camera in the center, but a brief glance at the NothingOS preview made me think about something else. Pay stated that the clock and battery indicators would be permanently placed in the upper left and upper right corners, making it clear that the Nothing phone (1) had a hole punch camera or a notch camera … or he. Did you hint at something different? If the Nothing OS preview shows that the camera app is open, there is a down arrow where the hole punch camera is located (see image below). With this, I believe that there is really nothing better than this when it comes to front-facing cameras. In fact, if there was a drilling camera in its place, why would the UI contain digital elements?

The only conclusion about Nothing Phone (1) is that it will come out in the summer and run NothingOS. Maybe a look at the Android Launcher (debut next month) will make it clearer what you can expect. That said, it’s fun to imagine what a phone looks like and what it can do. Karl definitely understood one thing, even if the predictions were completely wrong. He made us hype about technology again …
