Nothing phone (1) is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2022, and it has just been revealed that a Snapdragon 778G+ chipset powers it.
While this chip is an improvement on the basic version, which powered Realme GT 5G and Samsung Galaxy A73 5G, it is still a few editions far removed from the latest Snapdragon offerings.
The revelation came via Nothing phone’s founder’s tweet.
The device has gotten a lot of attention because of the drama surrounding it and the eccentricity of Carl Pei, its founder.
In a tweet, Pei claimed that there are already over 100,000 orders for the Nothing phone (1). So, the emerging details may not be enough to discourage others from buying them.
100,000+ on the pre-order waiting list! Can’t wait for everyone to get the phone (1) 🔥🔥🔥

In addition, the processor brings quite some impressive features, including a Kryo 670 CPU and an Adreno 642L GPU. It also brings a better clock speed than the original Snapdragon 778G.
Also, while the chosen processor is not as powerful as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which many future high-end Android smartphones will use, it means that the Nothing phone (1) will not cost as much.
There is also an argument that the chipset is more power-efficient, meaning that it would save battery life while maintaining high performance. Nothing phone (1) is set to launch on July 12, and it would support wireless and reverse wireless charging capabilities.
