The Nothing Phone (1) is launching on July 12, 2022 in India. Ahead of the launch, Nothing CEO Carl Pei has now revealed that the company’s first smartphone will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ processor. Pei says that the Snapdragon 778G+ is the most balanced choice for the Phone (1). In an interview with Input Mag, the CEO also revealed that the support for wireless charging and reverse wireless charging on the Snapdragon 778G+ was added by Qualcomm only for the Phone (1).
In a separate development, some key specifications of the Nothing Phone (1) have surfaced on the web, courtesy of tipster Abhishek Yadav. The latest leak reveals that the Nothing Phone (1) will feature a 50MP camera setup and a 120Hz OLED display.
Is The Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ The Most Balanced Choice?
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ is an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 778G which we have seen in several mid-range smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy A52s, Xiaomi 11 Lite NE, and Realme GT Master Edition. The Snapdragon 778G+ is manufactured on TSMC’s 6nm process and brings with it an integrated X53 5G modem and Adreno 642L GPU. It is an octa-core processor that consists of four performance-focused Cortex-A78 cores and four efficiency-focused Cortex-A55 cores.

Pei says that phones have reached a point where good enough performance for general tasks and more powerful chips have diminishing returns. He further added that the reason behind going with a mid-range processor came down to performance, power consumption, and cost. We believe that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ will help Nothing price the Phone (1) in the mid-range segment.
