The consumer tech startup overseen by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, called Nothing, will declare its first smartphone at an event that’s supposed to be held on July 12th-the company has themselves announced this.
The Nothing Phone 1 is supposed to be the company’s second device after the release of its Ear 1 truly wireless earbuds the previous year. The in-person event will be seized in London together with a concurrent live stream at 11 AM ET. Nothing is inscribing the launch as Nothing: Return to Instinct.
The company has already released the teaser and officially declared several aspects of the smartphone. At an exhibition in March, the company released details of its Nothing OS launcher, which will operate on top of Android 11. This launcher was announced in beta last month. The phone, as reported, will feature transparent components in its design, illuminating light strips on the rear end of the device, and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
The smartphone exemplifies the next step in Nothing’s desire to establish an ecosystem of interconnected smart devices. It schemes to produce some of these interconnected devices while cooperating with third-party companies to induce others.
