Nothing phone 1 is dropping this summer

London-based consumer-tech company Nothing has confirmed the launch of their first
smartphone called – Phone (1). It is coming sometime in the Summer of 2022.

Nothing, a company started by ex-One Plus exec, Carl Pei, is known for its uniquely designed Nothing ear (1) that saw a massive success when launched. Phone (1) would be its second product in the unique lineup. Pei confirmed this in their livestream event called “the Nothing (event): The Truth” on 23 March 2022.

Pei did not reveal much about the phone’s design but mentioned it will “be a breath of fresh air to the sleepy smartphone industry” bringing better value with a one-of-a-kind design.

No specifications were revealed in the event but Pei mentioned that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile platform. Samsung, Sony and Visionox will also be key component suppliers for the new phone.

There was, however, some mention about the OS driving the Nothing phone (1).

Pei called Nothing OS.

Nothing OS will a stripped-down version of Android capturing the best features of pure Andriod without all the bloatware. Pei announced, Nothing OS will have 40% fewer pre-installed apps and is designed to deliver a fast, smooth and more personal experience.

The design will also include bespoke fonts, colours, graphical elements and sounds. The unique dot-matrix design with font, icons and widgets will give Nothing OS a unified look.

The company confirmed that its mission is to build an open and seamless ecosystem with Nothing OS. The ecosystem should effortlessly connect and integrate with all Nothing products and products from other leading brands in the world.

Dynamic RAM caching on these phones will help the most-used apps launch faster. The UI will be minimalistic with gentle changing animations. Pei also introduced an in-built voice recorder app as an example.

A coherent interface is at the core of their design philosophy. The first preview of Nothing OS will be available on select smartphone models from April.

Company will provide 3 years OS ipdate of Nothing phone 1

The company further confirmed that the phone (1) will have a guaranteed 3 OS updates and 4 years of Android security updates. This is huge as directly competes with Apple’s iPhone offerings. Something that many Android phones lack.

The excitement for this phone is palpable, with many leading technology writers claiming it to be the first serious challenger from the Android stable to Apple’s ecosystem. It will be exciting to see how Pei and his team are able to claim that mantle.

Pei’s excessive focus on design is reminiscent of Steve Jobs’ obsession. It is no surprise that they hired Dyson’s former design head, Adam Bates as their design director. Pei claims Nothing has the best industrial design team in the world today.

Well, that surely makes us excited to see what the phone would look like. If their first product, ear (1), is anything to go by, it will be a game-changer!
