Carl Pei's Nothing will reportedly launch its first phone early next year

The phone is likely to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset under the hood.

What you need to know

  • A new report claims Nothing will be launching its first phone early next year.
  • It is also said to be working on its first power bank, which may be called the Nothing Power (1).
  • The company launched its first product in July this year.

Nothing, which announced a new partnership with Qualcomm earlier this week, could be working on its first smartphone. According to a report from 91Mobiles, Carl Pei's startup is planning to release the device sometime early next year to take the fight to the best Android phones.

While the report doesn't include any details about the key specs or features of the phone, it is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. Nothing has already confirmed that Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform will power its future tech products. You can also expect the phone to have a minimalistic design.

Back in January this year, Nothing acquired Andy Rubin's Essential brand, including all its trademarks, logo, and patents. There's a good chance that the brand's first phone will use at least some of Essential's tech.

In addition to a new phone, the report claims Nothing is also developing its own power bank called the Nothing Power (1). The power bank is tipped to debut before the end of the year.

The only product that Nothing sells right now are the ear (1) true wireless earbuds. Announced in July this year, the earbuds offer active noise cancellation and a bunch of other premium features at just $99.

Seeing how Nothing began teasing the ear (1) earbuds months before their launch, we wouldn't be surprised if it begins teasing its first smartphone sometime in the coming weeks.

Android Central has reached out to Nothing for comment on this story.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
