The Nothing Phone 1, created by Nothing Technology Limited, was released earlier this year in 40 markets around the world. But typically, like Google and Sony devices, it wasn’t released here in New Zealand.
To get the Nothing Phone 1, Kiwis must parallel import the device. As we’ve seen before, this can come with caveats like the device not being compatible with NZ carrier infrastructure. However, if we use the Google Pixel 6, which also has to be parallel imported into the country, as a template, there should be no issues using the Nothing Phone 1 here in NZ.
As we can see here, the Nothing Phone is compatible with the leading NZ operators, Spark, Vodafone and 2Degrees, so you don’t have to worry about whether a Nothing Phone 1 will work here at home.
How to get the Nothing Phone 1 in NZ
Previously, it could be challenging to parallel import devices into NZ. But this time around, it’s easier than ever, thanks to MightyApe.
MightyApe currently stocks three different Nothing Phone 1 Models, and you can get it within a day.
The Nothing Phone 1, designed in the UK by Nothing Technology Limited, was created by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, who aimed to bring something new to the repetitive world of phones.
It has a unique design sporting a transparent back panel with the phone’s insides stylishly lit up by Nothing’s Glyph LED lights.
It has a dual camera array featuring a 50MP f/1.88 primary camera and a 50MP f/2.2 wide camera. And on the front, there’s a 16MP selfie camera.
This is an Android phone with Nothing’s proprietary operating system, NothingOS, built on top, powered by the Snapdragon 778G+ processor.
The display is a 6.5inch OLED screen with a 2400 x 1080-pixel resolution 120Hz screen with 240Hz touch-sampling and an HRD10+ certification.
