- Nothing advertised its Phone 1 had a brightness rating of 1200 nits.
- It was discovered the Phone 1 is only capable of hitting 700 nits currently.
- The hardware is capable of emitting 1200 nits, but would need a software update.
When Nothing released the Phone 1, it was advertised that the maximum brightness of the handheld could reach up to 1200 nits. However, it was discovered (via ComputerBase and h/t XDA-Developers) that currently, the phone can only achieve 700 nits.
The discovery was made while ComputerBase was testing the device. Despite attempts to create situations that might trigger the phone to emit its advertised brightness, the German publication found the rating would never go higher than around 700 nits.
