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).
The latest revelation by Nothing confirms that the Phone (1) will have a translucent back panel. Moreover, it will beautifully showcase the internal components. Another key detail confirmed by them is the presence of wireless charging. Furthermore, the frame will be made out of recycled aluminum. Furthermore, the size of the device could be around 6.5″ inches similar to the S22 Plus. Moreover, the bezels will be symmetrical at the front. There will be dual cameras at the back. Lastly, the punch-hole will be in the center of the display housing the selfie shooter.
Pricing and Launch Date
The Nothing Phone (1) will launch on 12th July. The brand has officially announced a launch event for the device. Moreover, the expected price is slated to be around 500 Euros. This news comes from a European dealer. However, take this news with a pinch of salt.
Nothing has also revealed the first look of their operating software. It is 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 Beta version from the Google Playstore.
Partnership With Telcos
Nothing has announced their partners in India, the UK, and Germany. Nothing Phone (1) will officially be available via Flipkart in India. Moreover, they have partnered with O2 in the UK for the launch of their first phone. In addition, they have partnered with Deutsche Telekom AG in Germany as an exclusive retailer.
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). The device will be bringing some new features for the price and an above-average software experience.
