In addition to the teaser images, Nothing posted a new video on its YouTube channel, which appears to be the first part in a series chronicling the events leading up to the Nothing phone (1) launch. The video follows several different Nothing employees and co-founders Akis Evangelidis and Carl Pei as they discuss the challenges of preparing for the big event while trying to avoid leaks of the device.

There are a few interesting tidbits taken from the video, including where consumers will be able to buy the phone first. The video also shows blurred shots of the Nothing phone (1) and one not-so-blurred shot at the end. You can check out the video below:

The Nothing phone (1) will be powered by a Snapdragon processor and will likely challenge some of the best budget Android phones in the mid-range smartphone segment. The device will be fully unveiled on July 12.
