If you’re wondering if Carl Pei’s new Nothing company will be getting into the phone business, you won’t have to wonder anymore. At the company’ “The Truth” event on the 23rd of March, Pei confirmed that the company is developing a smartphone of its own called the Nothing Phone (1).
This somewhat odd and unique naming convention is in line with the company’s previous product, the Nothing Ears (1) true wireless earbuds. At the moment, nothing is known about the handset other than the fact that it exists. According to the announcement, the phone’s full announcement is set for the summer of 2022, which means that we still have a few months of waiting.
The phone is expected to come with Nothing OS which is based on Android, and the company also stated that the phone will be supported with 3 years of OS updates along with four years of security updates, which for the most part is par for the course for most Android handset makers who typically offer anywhere between 2-3 years of updates anyway.
It will be interesting to see if Pei will try to follow in OnePlus’ footsteps by creating an affordable handset, or if his new company will try and shoot for the premium market, but either way it looks like we’ll have to wait until the summer of 2022 to find out.
