Nothing pulled a fast one on us regarding the phone (1) brightness

What you need to know

  • The Nothing phone (1) is unable to achieve its advertised brightness of 1,200 nits.
  • Nothing has now dropped the phone’s peak brightness to 700 nits.
  • A software update may enable the device to hit its advertised brightness.

Nothing’s advertised brightness rating for the phone (1) appears to have some gray areas. The device can only reach 700 nits of peak brightness, rather than the advertised 1,200 nits.

According to real-world testing conducted by German tech site ComputerBase (opens in new tab), the Nothing phone (1) could not achieve a brightness higher than 700 nits despite efforts to create scenarios that would cause it to achieve its advertised rating. Nothing has since dropped the brightness for the budget Android phone on its website to reflect the new rating, which is 40% lower than its initial claim.
