Carl Pei, the OnePlus co-founder has announced the name of his next venture. What is it called?
“Nothing’s mission is to remove barriers between people and technology to create a seamless digital future. We believe that the best technology is beautiful, yet natural and intuitive to use. When sufficiently advanced, it should fade into the background and feel like nothing," Pei said in a press release at the time.
Last year, the company launched its first product Ear 1 true wireless earbuds.
In March this year, Nothing announced that it will launch its debut smartphone this summer. The phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and will have a stadium-shaped camera block in the top left corner.
In October 2020, Pei, who co-founded OnePlus in late 2013 with Pete Lau, left OnePlus.
“After nearly 7 years at OnePlus, I’ve made the difficult decision to say goodbye,” he said at the time.
“The world didn’t need another smartphone brand in 2013. But we saw ways of doing things better and dreamt of shaking things up. Better products. Built hand in hand with our users. At more reasonable prices. Fast forward to today, and OnePlus is a strong force to be reckoned when it comes to flagship smartphones. And the new Nord product line, this success will continue into new market segments."
He said he was leaving the company because it was his singular focus for the last seven years.
“I’ve never regretted trusting my gut feeling, and this time it’s no different. These past years, OnePlus has been my singular focus, and everything else has had to take a backseat. I’m looking forward to taking some time off to decompress and catch up with my family and friends. And then follow my heart on to what’s next.”
