The Nothing Phone (1) was advertised at the time of debut as having one of the brightest displays on a smartphone in its price category. With HDR content, the device’s max brightness was 1200 nits. It now seems that wasn’t the case, as the manufacturer quietly changed the smartphone’s specifications.
Computerbase recently reported that Nothing at all The phone (1) couldn’t achieve more than 500 nits of brightness. This was much less than Nothing was claimed at launch. The device’s specifications page has actually been modified and now lists a maximum brightness of 500 nits for everyday use and 700 nits for HDR video.
An earlier version of the Nothing Phone (1) specification page that specifically cites 1200 nits of maximum brightness for viewing HDR video has previously been preserved by the Web Archive. Fortunately, other details like 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support, 240Hz touch sampling, etc., have not changed.
