- Nothing is working on its own smartphone and powerbank
- The company has joined hands with chipmaker Qualcomm
- The smartphone is tipped to debut early next year whereas the power bank could arrive by the end of 2021
Nothing tech is reportedly working on its first smartphone and a power bank. The news comes from 91Mobiles in collaboration with tipster Mukul Sharma. The brand made its debut in the tech segment by launching its first TWS earphones called Nothing ear (1).
The publication adds that Nothing will launch its own phone and power bank soon. The latter will probably arrive before the smartphone. However, we recommend you to take this news with a pinch of salt as the brand is yet to reveal anything about its upcoming products.
Nothing to launch smartphone and power bank soon
Last week in an official blog post, Nothing announced its partnership with chip-maker Qualcomm and its Snapdragon platform to power future tech products. In a statement, Carl Pei said “The successful launch of our first product, ear (1), proved that there is room for a new challenger brand to emerge and disrupt today’s sea of sameness. Users deserve better products that are simpler to use, accessible, yet look amazing,”
If the report of Nothing working on its own smartphone is indeed true then we can expect it to come with a Snapdragon processor. Earlier in February this year, Nothing acquired Andy Rubin’s Essential company that had launched the Essential phone way back in 2017. The acquisition could help the Carl Pei-helmed company to utilise Essential’s tech for developing its own smartphone. Nothing aims to offer a minimalistic design that is evident from the ear (1) and even the Essential Phone debuted with the same philosophy.
As for the power bank, 91mobiles adds that the device could be called the Nothing Power (1) and it is tipped to launch before the brand’s smartphone. It could reportedly debut before the end of this year.
