Carl Pei unveiled before the hour the first images of his smartphone with a design as original as the name of his start-up Nothing.
Carl Pei has more than one trick up his sleeve. He didn’t leave it to leak specialists like Evan Blass, alias evleaks, to reveal the first images of the “phone (1)”, the first device of its very young brand Nothing. “Leaks are harder to contain these days and many of you have been waiting a long time. So here it is,” he justified on Twitter.
The device, which gives pride of place to transparency, is distinguished by illuminating light strips on the back. These light strips have already been highlighted by Nothing at a previous event. The device must be officially presented on July 12. We already know that he will spin with a chip Qualcomm’s Snapdragon on a modded version of Android called Nothing OS. The device will also rely on a wireless charging device.
Until then, there is no doubt that Carl Pei will continue to drop information drop by drop. The man had been at the origin of the success of the OnePlus brand which he had co-founded and whose smartphones had initially been marketed exclusively on the Net.
But the challenge of his new brand Nothing is daunting. Since the era of OnePlus, many manufacturers have broken their teeth, and not least.
