Nothing May Enter the Smartphone Business Soon

Nothing's founder, Carl Pei, indicated that the London-based consumer technology company is working on its first Android smartphone.

Nothing was rumored to be working on a smartphone in October 2021, nine months after the ex-co founder of OnePlus quit the Chinese smartphone maker to create the company that reminds Greek mythology fans of Odysseus calling himself Nobody. Pei sent out a tweet on Tuesday that appears to back up the suspicions.

He merely said three words on Twitter: "Back on Android." On the surface, he appears to be switching back to an Android phone after so many years with the iPhone. However, as you scroll down in the answers, you'll notice both the Android and Snapdragon accounts are advising Pei to work together to make Nothing's smartphone a reality.

According to initial reports, the Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC will be at the heart of the Nothing Android smartphone, but the exact model is unknown at this time. They also stated that it would be launched early this year, but based on Pei's tweet, it may be released sooner than we expect.

Since Nothing is more than a year old at this point, this is the first time Pei has discussed building an Android phone. The Nothing Ear 1 wireless earbuds are the only product it has released in that short amount of time. They're identical to AirPods, but they proudly display the name of their developer in magnificent digital text down their antennae.

According to Techradar, Manu Sharma, CEO and vice president of Nothing India, claimed in November that the company had five products in various phases of development. In December, the Nothing Ear 1 earbuds were the first item to be checked off the list. Nothing may release its first smartphone by the end of spring, if not sooner, after acquiring Essential, a smartphone manufacturer that went out of business in 2020 due to weak sales, and working with Qualcomm last year.
