- Tram Ho
In October 2020, Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus, left the company to the surprise of many. Towards the end of January 2021, Carl Pei announced the creation of a company called Nothing, focusing mainly on the consumer technology segment with smart devices in the same ecosystem. For a long time, we have heard information about Nothing is developing a smartphone model and today, Carl Pei officially “treaked” Nothing Phone (1).
This is the company’s second product, Nothing, after the Ear (1) headphones, and as you can see, the company’s branding strategy is clearly around numbers. Unfortunately, the company has not announced much information about this smartphone, instead it is a launch with many mysteries.
Phone (1) will have a Snapdragon processor, but the exact version has not been revealed. Nothing said it would reveal more information about the phone and hardware “in the coming months.”
The company has also not revealed a specific launch date for Phone (1), only knowing that the device will officially launch in “Summer 2022”, that is, in the period to the end of September.
Nothing Phone (1) will have “iconic design”
One of the outstanding design features on Nothing’s previous product – Nothing Ear (1) – is the transparent shell both on the headset and the charging case. Carl Pei once mentioned that this will be the design that is carried over to other products.
Until now, we still don’t know what the design of Phone (1) will look like, but based on what Carl Pei has said, it is possible that Nothing Phone (1) will have a partially transparent case design or even completely. Such a design will definitely help the device stand out from other smartphones on the market, and at the same time bring a fashionable touch when combined with headphones.
However, it’s all just conjecture. The company just uses the term “iconic design” to describe the Nothing Phone (1) without revealing any specific details, other than the weird logo above.
It can be said that the most notable thing in Carl Pei’s Phone (1) introduction video is Nothing OS. This Android interface is even more mentioned than the phone itself. First, the company confirmed Nothing Phone (1) will receive three years of operating system updates and four years of security updates, roughly matching Google’s current commitments.
True to Nothing’s founding mission, Nothing OS is built on an open and seamless ecosystem, making it easy to connect and integrate Nothing’s products, as well as products from the world’s leading brands. other world. No operating system captures the best features of pure Android, distilling the platform down to the essentials that every byte has its purpose. Nothing OS is designed to deliver a fast, smooth, and deeply personal experience. A coherent, seamless interface between software and hardware through tailored fonts, colors, graphic elements, and sounds.”
Veteran OnePlus fans will probably be excited about this as it is very similar to the early days of Oxygen OS, a “pure Android” with sophisticated tweaks. Nothing even used the phrase “fast and smooth” to describe Nothing OS, which is what OnePlus still calls Oxygen OS to this day.
We’ll also get a chance to try out Nothing OS before Nothing Phone (1) comes out. The company said it will release Nothing OS launcher for some smartphones in April.
“We are ready to mark a change for a boring smartphone market,” said Carl Pei.
