Disassembling the Nothing Phone (1) reveals the secrets of the Glyph interface

Prior to launch, the Nothing Phone (1) was hyped for its transparent back design and LED Glyph interface. Popular YouTuber JerryRigEverything, who runs comprehensive smartphone tests, recently took the Nothing Phone apart (1). He revealed the secrets of the device’s Glyph interface. In addition, the YouTuber has also uploaded the latest video showing the total number of LED lights.
Disassembling the Nothing Phone (1) reveals the insides of the smartphone. The glyph grid is made up of hundreds of tiny individual LED bulbs (more on that later). Nothing Phone (1) has an entire collection dedicated to the aesthetics of the device. The smartphone comes with a glass back, and after removing it, there are several pieces of plastic that are simply glued together with no screws holding them in place. The YouTuber adds that there are 10 silver screws that hold the larger plastic segments in place. The diffuser strips on the Glyph LEDs are attached with high-precision adhesive tape that hides the yellowish cast. If the sticker is removed, the LEDs emit a blue color when lit instead of the standard white color.

Behind all the plastic segments, the Nothing Phone (1) is just another Android phone. It has a wireless charging coil in the center under a giant layer of plastic. The YouTuber says that individual components such as the LEDs, buttons, ports, and battery can be replaced, but this will require removing the adhesive from the back panel and then disassembling the Glyph interface.

In another video uploaded yesterday, JerryRigEverything counted all the LEDs on the back panel. There is no claim that more than 900 light sources have been used for the Glyph interface. And the count also turned out to be close. The YouTuber counted a total of 468 LEDs and soon realized that the LEDs were on both sides of the strip. So doubling the count brings the actual number of LEDs present on the phone to 972.
