Nothing is the name of the new company founded by Carl Pei. Carl Pei was the co-founder of OnePlus. He was the brain behind OnePlus’ immense success. However, he left OnePlus before their integration with OPPO. OnePlus Nord was his last project with OnePlus. Now, Carl is back with a bang. He launched Nothing last year and their first product was wireless earbuds named Ear (1). After months of speculation, they finally revealed their next product in March, the Nothing Phone (1).
Nothing held a virtual event in which they revealed their plans. They made it clear that they were not an audio company. Moreover, Carl Pei revealed that their vision was to create an ecosystem of products to go against Apple. He admitted that no other brand offered the same seamless integration as Apple. Nothing aims to change that and bring a cohesive and seamless ecosystem of products. The ecosystem will not be limited to Nothing’s products. Rather, they will partner with other brands for better and seamless integration with their products.
Moreover, they have partnered with brands like Qualcomm, Sony, and Samsung for their products. We can guess that chipset, camera sensors and displays will be from these brands. Carl said that the revolution of mobile phones has stopped and we are seeing more gimmicks than ever before. He aims to bring a revolution in the mobile phone industry through the Nothing Phone (1).
Nothing has also revealed the first look of their operating software. It will be called ‘Nothing OS’. Moreover, the theme of the OS will be different with dot-patterned font and widgets. The animations will be minimal and smooth. The app launch and close time will be minimized to create a fast and smooth experience. Moreover, you can download the Nothing launcher from the Google Playstore. However, the launcher is only for select models.
Leakster, Agrawalji Technical has now revealed the expected specifications of the Nothing Phone (1). However, take these with a huge pinch of salt. According to him, the device will feature the Snapdragon 778G. Furthermore, the device will have a 6.43″ OLED 90Hz panel with HDR 10+ support. Nothing Phone (1) will pack a 4500 mAh battery and will have support for wireless charging as well. In addition, there will be a triple-rear camera setup. It will include a 50MP, an 8MP, and a 2MP sensor. Moreover, the front camera will be a 32MP sensor.
These are the alleged specifications leaked by him. However, these seem too generic as opposed to what Nothing has been teasing. If these are to be believed as legit, the Nothing Phone (1) doesn’t live up to its hype. The launcher isn’t also that exciting. So the hype is decreasing by the day. Maybe they want to surprise their customers or they could just settle in the dust.
