What to expect?
There is no specific information about what Nothing will bring to the launch event, but the company is expected to present its first Nothing Phone, on which it has been working for over a year. Previously there were reports that claimed that the tech firm may introduce its smartphone in April this year.
It’s worth noting that Pei hinted at the release of a new smartphone in a series of tweets last month. Nothing’s first pair of true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds were released in 2021, and the device is expected to have a transparent design.
Nothing founder Carl Pei, according to TechCrunch, presented a prototype of the upcoming Nothing smartphone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. Notably, the prototype was shown to key industry executives, including Qualcomm, with whom the company collaborated last year on the chipset, confirming that the upcoming Phone by Nothing would be equipped with a Qualcomm processor.
Till now Nothing has only released one product to date, the Nothing Ear (1), but that is about to change with the development of the Nothing Phone. This smartphone will be available in early 2022.
Nothing Phone specifications expected
According to the report, the Nothing smartphone may feature a transparent design similar to the Nothing Ear 1 TWS earbuds, which were released in 2021. Carl Pei teased the upcoming device on Twitter last month in a series of posts. Following that, both the Snapdragon and Android Twitter accounts responded to Pei’s tweets.
Nothing recently introduced a new $70 million investment led by EQT Ventures and C Ventures. The funding is said to be utilised to develop new product categories in association with Qualcomm Technologies and its Snapdragon platform, as well as to expand operations at its new London Design Hub.
