One of the features of the new smartphone Nothing Phone (1) became a transparent back cover. Geeks like such things. But this and the original lighting are not enough for everyone. A famous manufacturer of accessories dbrand will help to combine an unusual appearance with the most popular flagships from Apple, Samsung, and Google. And now, in the usual manner for this brand, he joked about the new brand of the former founder of OnePlus.
dbrand decided to name vinyl stickers and covers that copy the Nothing design Something. They also wrote “It’s Better Than Nothing”. Sarcastic posts on website page weren’t over here. First, they blamed Nothing for a limited budget, called Phone (1) a “fashionable flashlight”, and finally said that they had “creatively rethought” the design:
Plagiarism is not a crime
Some might accuse us of theft. Here’s our counter: we stole nothing. After all, we’ve spent a lot of time looking at internal hardware thanks to our Teardown initiative. As a result, we’re uniquely qualified to rip off an industrial design aesthetic and ‘creatively reinterpret’ it for other devices. That’s not theft – it’s plagiarism, which is definitely not a crime. We checked.
So now you can order a “skin” very similar to Nothing Phone (1) for iPhone 13 Pro Max, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and Google Pixel 6 Pro there. Moreover, a sticker with an inductive coil can be ordered for the Apple MagSafe Charger.
It is worth noting that the drawing turned out to be good and original, even taking into account the features of smartphones (for example, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has a drawn stylus). Such accessories cost $24.95 for each model. All of them are exclusively available in white, although the Nothing Phone (1) also has a black version.
By the way, there are Ultramatte Teardown stickers for a much larger number of smartphones, which also reproduce the appearance of the internal components of the corresponding devices.
