Consumer tech company Nothing today confirmed plans to launch phone (1), its first and highly anticipated smartphone product.
Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile platform, Nothing phone (1) is the second device in the company’s product ecosystem built for seamless connectivity and defined by iconic design.
Further details including phone (1)’s summer launch and operating system Nothing OS, were revealed by CEO and Co-founder Carl Pei during the Nothing (event): The Truth livestream on 23 March.
“Having raised $144M, built a team of over 300 people and secured support from trusted partners like Qualcomm Technologies, Inc, we are ready for phone (1) to mark the start of change for the sleepy smartphone market,” said Carl Pei.
“We are also doing a new $10M round of community investment, so that our supporters get the chance to be part of our journey going head to head against the giants of the industry.”
Nothing OS is built on an open and seamless ecosystem that will effortlessly connect and integrate Nothing products and products from other world-leading brands.
Nothing OS aims to capture the best features of pure Android, distilling the operating system to just the essentials, where every byte has a purpose. It is designed to deliver a fast, smooth and personal experience.
A coherent interface, the hardware seamlessly integrates with software through bespoke fonts, colours, graphical elements and sounds. A first preview of Nothing OS will be available via its launcher that will be available to download on select smartphone models from April.
More details about phone (1) will be announced in the coming months.
