The Nothing Phone (1) will be using a Snapdragon 778G+ which is a slightly advanced version of a chipset launched last year. The chip is built for mid-range devices. The Motorola Edge 30 is one device that also features the Snapdragon 778G+ chipset. Also Read - Nothing Phone (1) deliveries face delay 'due to the ramp-up of production'

What we know about Nothing Phone (1)
Nothing Phone (1) will be sold via an Invite-only system. The phone will be offered to only a select few. The buyer will first receive an email with an invite code. This email will have a pre-order pass. This is the only way one will be able to pre-order the device.
After receiving the code, the buyer will have to secure your pre-order pass by paying an amount of Rs 2,000. The Rs 2,000 deposit will ensure that your pre-order pass works when the device will be listed. When making the final purchase the Rs 2000 paid earlier will be adjusted in the final amount.
This invite system was first seen with the OnePlus One phone, which was a great way to assess demand as well as build hype around a new brand.
The Nothing Phone comes with a transparent back with lights. These lights can create various effects using the Glyph interface that makes it stand out from the crowd. The lights can be used as notification lights and even a charging status indicator. From the sides, the phone uses flat chamfered edges that we have seen on some of the recent iPhones,
