We expected Nothing Phone (1) to land at the end of March, at a company event called "The Truth". Turns out we didn't hear as many truths about the first Android phone as expected from Nothing, but this should hold true.

The company has announced that it will hold another launch event, and this will be a real and full reveal of the Nothing Phone (1). It is scheduled for July 12 at 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm BST, or 1am PT. have a physical projection), of course, it will also be broadcast live.

The event is titled "Return to Instinct," which roughly means nothing (as in the absence of something, not the company). Well, unless the phone makes us swing from trees or live in caves or something.

A launch invite, which you can see above, is equally puzzling - we'd assume it means the phone will be coloured, were it not for the fact that Nothing has already revealed the design of its phone (1) and it has a transparent back.

Along with the design, the phone's software is the other key detail we know about, so the launch event will fill in the blanks like the screen, cameras, battery, processor, and most importantly, the price.

We may hear leaks about the Nothing Phone (1) closer to launch, but many of them are likely to remain shrouded in mystery until the launch event, so stay tuned to TechRadar on July 12 and we'll bring you all the announcements.

Review: The last great phone for a while

The 2022 "busy phone launch" period has lasted longer than expected, but in mid-July Nothing Phone (1) is likely to be the last big launch for quite some time.

We typically see the last major pre-August launches in March or April, but some carriers have kept a steady stream of devices seemingly well into July.

Then there's a slump for a few months before the year-end mania: Samsung will probably kick this off at the end of August with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, and we'll probably also see the iPhone 14, Google Pixel 7, OnePlus 10T and Xiaomi 12T in the following weeks.

The shortened "off season" will be good news for phone fans as it means they have less time before they have another tech rush, but it's bad news for tech writers who just want to have a vacation.
