We already know that Nothing’s debut smartphone, the Phone 1, will be equipped with a series of light strips on the back. But now, thanks to an in-depth video from Marques Brownlee, we have a much better idea of ​​what they will actually serve. Brownlee’s video highlights a number of different usage scenarios, including having the LEDs act as a charging indicator, marking unread notifications, or flashing ringtones in time.

Dubbed by Nothing as the “glyph interface,” the strips consist of just over 900 individual LEDs embedded in the back of the phone. Nothing that CEO Carl Pei previously hinted in an interview with The edge that they could serve as a modern take on the classic smartphone notification LED, but now we have a much better idea of ​​how this will work in practice.

Here’s a list of all of Brownlee’s video highlights features:

  • All strips light up to show notifications.
  • The central circle (squirrel?) lights up to indicate wireless or reverse wireless charging.
  • The bottom light strip can act as a charging progress bar.
  • All strips can light up to serve as a fill light for the camera.
  • All strips can flash in time with the phone’s 10 built-in ringtones.

Aside from the glyphs themselves, there’s also a red LED that flashes when the phone is filming.

As part of its marketing blitz, Nothing was not shy about showing off the Phone 1 ahead of its official launch on July 12. It showed off the design of the back of the phone last week and has already released a beta preview of its Android-based launcher, nothing OS† Internally, we know that the phone will have a Snapdragon processor, although other specs are yet to be announced. Expect this to change as we get closer to the July 12 launch.
