If you have not been able to get your hands on the Nothing Phone 1either due to limited availability or the fact that it is not seenhence in the US, Dbrand can help you relieve pain. You can now turn your current phone into a Nothing Phone using transparent-style Something skins that almost perfectly reflect the design of Nothing.
Dbrand’s marketing for its Something line of smartphone cases and skins doesn’t shy away from poking fun at the hype surrounding the Nothing Phone 1. Now that the Phone 1 is here, it’s clear its main selling point is its eye-catching, transparent design. . And that is something that Dbrand knows very well.
The product page for the Something line of accessories is full of jokes and jabs at the idea that Nothing was planning to take down Apple with a mid-range device that was more focused on looking good than performing well. The top of the Something page reads: “Imagine trying to break into the smartphone market. It turns out that having less money than Apple makes it a bit difficult. Availability? Limited. Catering? Restricted”.
While Dbrand is clearly riffing on the transparent white design by Nothingcovers and skins do not copy all of the Nothing Phone 1. Mainly, the LED strips that give the Phone 1 a unique visual identity are missing. That said, the rest of the designs are pretty accurate interpretations of what it would look like if the Nothing was the biggest flagship on the market.
Dbrand CEO Adam Ijazhe told The Verge that because the Phone 1’s appeal is based almost entirely on its looks, people won’t want to cover it up with a case from your company. He says the question then was, “If we can’t cover the phone, how do we benefit from anything?” The answer he found was to allow current smartphone owners to avoid the hype of a phone half as powerful as what they already have and enjoy the one thing Nothing has been pushing more: the look of the Nothing Phone.
If you’re looking to buy one of Dbrand’s Something cases or skins, you might want to grab yours quickly. The company is known for get into legal trouble from time to time thanks to his self-proclaimed “plagiarism”, resulting in his products being pulled until the issues are resolved. Currently, you can get a Something case or skin for the iPhone 13 Pro Max, Pixel 6 Pro, and Samsung S22 Ultra.
