That’s definitely not going to place the Nothing phone (1) at the forefront of quick charging these days, but considering its mid-range chipset and positioning it probably won’t feel entirely out of place either. A few of its competitors go to the high 60s, Watts-wise, and there are some oddballs here and there that do even more, but 33W isn’t bad. It’s just not amazing either.
As you may have already seen, the specifications for the Nothing phone (1) keep being revealed one after the other, every day, whether through an official teaser or – as in this instance – through other channels.

In the latter case, presumably this 45W charger will be offered by the company as an extra purchase.
I would, if I had the money to even get one. More importantly, such beneficial features should be available to every single smartphone today that are using Lithium-type batteries, rather than making them exclusive to gaming-centric phones. Yeah right, we need to have the option to adjust the charging speeds on our own, and manufacturers should also inform every single smartphone user about the advantages and disadvantages of choosing faster or slower charging speeds, so as they could d…
Fans can now join the waitlist for the Nothing phone (1) Fans can now join the waitlist for the Nothing phone (1) I think 33w is fine, although not sure if the 5w wireless charging was necessary since it is too slow. I guess that they put that to justify the design. I would have preferred a 6.4 inches screen though considering that there are noticeable bezels.
