Ahead of the iPhone SE 3 launch, the Nothing Phone prototype has been seen in the hands of founder Carl Pei.
The iPhone SE 3 is just hours away from its official release and just before that happens, the Nothing phone gets leaked quite easily. We had heard rumors about the Apparently Nothing phone prototype seeing a certain Qualcomm executive behind closed doors at the MWC 2022 event. Sadly, the doors were apparently not locked as the latest leak shows Carl Pei. Nothing installer, showing the phone at right angles from afar. And, can you see the design of the phone?
sad photo share The evleaks was taken by such a distance that zooming in wouldn’t help give us a good idea of the phone’s design. You can find an unconventional design but nothing special. It appears to be in Mate Black with some stickers pasted on it, contrary to the rumored “transparent design” similar to the earbuds. However, this is a prototype and hence, one of those protective cases can be worn.
Nothing leaked before iPhone SE 3 launch
Industry rumors suggest that the phone may not launch in April 2022. There is no specific information about this phone yet, other than the fact that it could be powered by a Qualcomm chipset. Many expect the OnePlus One to be the first phone along the lines of the One – the first phone that Carl Pei launched in 2014 under his previous company, OnePlus.
The leak comes just before Apple is rumored to unveil its iPhone SE 3, the most affordable iPhone of the next generation. Sadly, rumors suggest that the iPhone SE 3 could be largely based on the 2020 iPhone SE, and will only be an upgrade to the iPhone 13’s A15 Bionic chipset. This new chip will not only give more performance but will also offer 5G connectivity.
Despite the chipset upgrade, Apple is expected to launch it for as low as $300, making it one of the most affordable 5G iPhones you can buy. However, the aging 2020 iPhone SE with its A13 Bionic chip is also expected to come with a lower price tag.
Now with the Nothing leak coming out, does this indicate the brand is targeting the flagship killer sector with this phone? The cheapest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip you can buy today is the Motorola Edge 30 Pro and it remains to be seen if nothing can compete with it, or even beat it.
