Nothing, the brainchild of ex-OnePlus founder Carl Pie, unveiled its much-anticipated smartphone at a global event yesterday night. Pei unveiled the Nothing Phone (1) after attracting attention with its initial product, the Nothing ear (1). He also divulged several key features regarding the future smartphone, while the release date is yet unknown.

The goal of the Nothing Phone (1), according to Pei, is to compete with Apple, not OnePlus, as rumors suggested. This means that, at least for the time being, the London-based tech firm is skipping the budget category. Pei feels that the smartphone market is deficient in innovation and that the monotony will be broken with Nothing Phone (1).

The company’s future phone will focus not just on innovation, but also on performance, user interface, sound, and much more, according to the company’s founder, who spoke at the event last night.

Let’s take a look at 5 key announcements from the event last night.

Snapdragon Platform

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile platform will be used for the Nothing Phone (1), according to the company. While the specific chipset’s name hasn’t been published, we assume it will employ the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, which is the latest in the Snapdragon 800 series.

Nothing OS

According to the company, the smartphone would be based on Android with Nothing OS modifications on top. It’s probable that the phone may come pre-installed with Android 12, the most recent version of Android. Nothing OS, according to the startup, will provide a pure Android experience with no bloatware. The company stated that “Nothing OS encapsulates the best aspects of pure Android, reducing the operating system to its fundamentals and ensuring that every byte serves a purpose. It’s made to provide a quick, seamless, and personalized experience. The hardware and software are completely integrated thanks to custom fonts, colors, graphical components, and sounds”.


While the design of the Nothing Phone has yet to be verified, it is expected to be inspired by its earphone (1). Like its predecessor, the Nothing Phone (1) is intended to have a transparent or see-through design. According to Pei, the phone’s design would be innovative, unlike anything seen before. Nothing hasn’t shown us a picture of the phone yet.

Apple Rival

Being an ex-OnePlus co-founder, rumors have it that Nothing’s forthcoming phone will be aimed against the Chinese smartphone manufacturer. That, however, is not the case. Pei stated during the event last night that the goal is to create an Apple competitor. During the event, Pei said “We’re creating the most compelling Apple alternative. Apple is the only option if you want items that connect and function together flawlessly. The MacBook, iPhone, and AirPods all function together in the manner you want them to. However, as soon as you switch to a Windows PC or an Android phone, the ecosystem breaks down”.


So, when is the Nothing Phone (1) going to be released? The company has stated that the smartphone will be available worldwide this summer. The specific month or date has yet to be determined. According to a previous report, the Nothing phone would be released in April. According to another rumor, the launch will take place in the first half of 2022. While the firm hasn’t said anything regarding the India launch, we expect the smartphone to be released around the same time as the initial product ear (1).
