Nothing explains why it reduced the brightness of the phone 1 and future steps

Recently, Nothing got into a bit of controversy after it was discovered that the Phone 1 did not meet the brightness specifications described in the original advertisements. The company has now sent an official note about the brightness of the phone 1 to android authority.

In the statement from Nothing, the company states:

The hardware can reach a maximum brightness of 1200 nits, but this is currently limited by the software to 700 nits. This decision was made to ensure a balanced user experience in terms of heat and battery consumption. We look forward to hearing from our users about this and will be following feedback closely to understand if this should be addressed in future software updates.

In materials provided to android authority, we were explained that 0-500 nits is considered the normal range for the phone 1 and 500 nits can be reached under normal conditions. However, the high brightness range of 500-700 only activates when the auto brightness mode is turned on and the phone is under strong light. The 700-1,200 range is intended as a special mode that is currently unavailable due to software limitations.

While the comment does clarify why the London-based company chose to limit brightness – despite the hardware being capable of more – it doesn’t necessarily explain why it chose to use the 1,200 nit measurement in its marketing in the first place. .
