Following a slew of early rumors, Nothing has now officially announced its first handset, the “phone (1).”
During the recent “The Truth” livestream, Nothing CEO and OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei shared an array of details about the upcoming device. With more details coming in the next few months, the Nothing phone (1) will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and run Nothing OS, a stripped-down version of Android. The operating system will apparently “captures the best features” of Google’s Android limited “to just the essentials.” The modification will offer a fast and smooth experience and visual interface with “bespoke” fonts, colors, design elements and sounds.
A preview of the Nothing OS will be previewed sometime in April, with a download available for select Android phones.
The Nothing phone (1) is expected to synergize with the company’s Ear (1) release to create a technology ecosystem. “This is the start of an open and diverse product ecosystem that gives people real choice,” said Pei. Adding, “We’re building the most compelling alternative to Apple.”
