5 Smartphones It Will Compete Against


We’re less than a day away from the launch of the much-talked-about Nothing Phone 1, the first smartphone from former OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei. The Nothing Phone 1 is slated to be officially unveiled on July 12 which is Tuesday (tomorrow) at an event that the company is calling (brace yourselves): Nothing (event): Return to Instinct. The event would begin at 8:30 pm IST.

We all know that there has been a lot of hype around the phone, courtesy of the LED lights that the device is equipped with and a refreshing, flamboyant design. Also, prospective buyers have expectations since the smartphone is backed by Carl Pei, the former co-founder of OnePlus. A recent leak also suggests that the Nothing Phone 1 may feature an under-display fingerprint scanner too. The Nothing Phone 1 is likely to be priced between Rs 28,000-Rs 30,000 and it will compete with the likes of smartphones from Samsung, Motorola, iQoo and Poco in this price segment. We bring you a list of 5 smartphones the Nothing Phone 1 will rival:

Samsung Galaxy M52

Last year’s Samsung Galaxy M52 is one phone that the Nothing Phone 1 will compete with. The device is feature-packed and it costs around Rs 25,000 in the country. It is powered by a Snapdragon 778G chipset which is a decent SoC and reports suggest that the Nothing Phone 1 will be powered by a Snapdragon 778G+ chip.

Poco F4 5G

The Poco F4 is priced at Rs 28,000 in India and it features a glass rear panel, a sleek body and a quick 67W fast charging. The Poco F4 also comes with a Type-C charging port and dual SIM support. Its display offers FullHD+ along with support for HDR10+.

Vivo V23

Last year’s Vivo V23 5G is still a good buy and it is also a feature-packed phone that the Nothing Phone 1 will compete with. Like most V series phones, the Vivo V23 comes with a decent set of cameras and a sleek design, but there is an ample amount of pre-loaded bloatware.

Motorola Edge 30

The biggest USP of the Motorola Edge 30 is its pOLED display and its very capable OIS-enabled primary camera set-up. The device comes with Snapdragon 778+ SoC that will be fitted in the Nothing Phone 1. The Moto Edge 30’s display has a 144Hz refresh rate and it comes with a 33W bundled charger.

iQoo Neo 6

The iQoo Neo 6 is a gaming-centric smartphone and comes with a Snapdragon 870 SoC. The smartphone offers an AMOLED display and comes with 80W fast charging.
