Ahead of the launch of the Nothing phone (1) which is set to take place on July 12 this month, a number of details around the device have leaked online. These include specifications, a black variant of the phone, pricing and more.
One thing the leaks did mention was the presence of a side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the phone (1), which seems to be wrong, as suggested by a new leaked video. The video, tweeted by user radioactive (@floozz3) shows the phone (1) being unlocked by pressing down on an in-display fingerprint scanner on the front of the device.

The presence of an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Nothing phone (1) will come as good news to many fans who have been waiting for the device. A front-facing, under display fingerprint sensor allows a more uniform experience with both hands compared to a side-mounted sensor and also lets you unlock the device easily when it is placed down on a desk.
We still don’t know if the phone will come with an optical or ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, though. It seems that is a key detail we will know more about straight at launch.
Meanwhile, other leaked specifications of the Snapdragon 778G+ powered Nothing phone (1) include a 6.55-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED screen, a 4500mAh battery with 45W wired and 15W wireless charging support and a 50MP dual camera setup.
The Nothing phone (1) can currently be pre-booked on Flipkart even if you don’t have an invite code. We should know more details including the Indian pricing of the phone (1) on launch.
