We already know that the debut smartphone, the Phone 1, will come with a series of light bars on the back. But now, thanks In-depth video from Marquis BrownleeWe have a much better idea of what it might actually be useful for. Brownlee’s video highlights two different use cases, including turning on LEDs as a charging indicator, highlighting unread notifications, or flashing in time with ringtones.
The strips, which have nothing marked as an “avatar front,” consist of just over 900 individual LEDs built into the back of the phone. Nothing CEO Carl Pei previously hinted at in a file meeting with the edge They could be a modern take on the classic LED light for smartphone notifications, but we now have a much better idea of how that actually works.
Here is a list of all the features that the Brownlee video highlights:
- All bars light up to show notifications.
- The center circle (the circle?) lights up to indicate wireless charging or reverse wireless charging.
- The bottom light bar can act as the charging progress bar.
- All straps can be illuminated to act as a fill light for the camera.
- All bars can flash in time with the phone’s ten built-in ringtones.
Aside from the avatars themselves, there is also a red LED that flashes when the phone is photographed.
As part of the marketing campaign, nothing has been shy about flaunting Phone 1 before its release Official launch on July 12. I showed The design of the back of the phone Last week and already released a beta preview of its Android launcher, None OS. Internally, we know that the phone is powered by a Snapdragon processor, although other specifications have yet to be announced. We expect that to change as we get closer to the July 12 launch.
