The first smartphone by Carl Pei’s new startup Nothing is coming today. It’s called Nothing Phone 1, and we know quite a bit about it already thanks to teasers and mini-reveals by the company itself.

Now, however, thanks to a detailed “teardown” of the phone’s firmware by developer Kuba Wojciechowski, we get insight into details that we sometimes don’t get for phones that are already available on the market.

Starting with the phone’s specifications, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chip, a 120Hz AMOLED FHD+ display, a triple camera on the back with the main sensor being a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766, and a 16-megapixel selfie camera.

Wojciechowski has also dug out some details that make the Nothing Phone 1 seem quite a generic product – despite its unconvential, see-through design. First, it appears to be manufactured by a Chinese company called BYD Electronic, which produces phones for other brands to sell under their own name. Some of the key software on the phone, like the camera app, also appears to be a third party solution, with references to various Chinese apps and other phones, Wojciechowski claims.

None of this automatically means the phone will perform poorly, and specs rarely tell all there is to know about the phone, so we’ll see how it performs when we get a chance to test it ourselves.

Wojciechowski also found the four wallpapers included on the phone, so you can have a go at them ahead of schedule if you so desire.

The official reveal of the Nothing Phone 1 is on Tuesday, July 12, at 11 a.m. ET. Tune in to find out whether there’s anything left we don’t already know about this phone.
