Nothing’s next smartphone may launch in the US

Nothing Telephone (1)the first smartphone of OnePlus Co-founder Carl Pei’s tech startup Nothing was a breath of fresh air in the somewhat stale android phone scene when it launched this summer. With a cool and transparent design, decent specs, several unique features, and a fair price, it was an attractive alternative to much more expensive flagships from renowned phone makers.

But the Nothing Phone (1), which was available in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, never officially arrived in the United States and Canada.

That could change when Nothing launches its second smartphone. Company Founder Pei spoke to CNBC and explained why the Nothing Phone (1) never reached America.

“The reason we didn’t launch in the US is that you need a lot of additional tech support, to support all the carriers and their unique customizations that they have to do on Android. We felt we weren’t ready before,” he said.

The good news is that Pei says the company is “in talks with some carriers in the US to potentially launch a future product there.”

Nothing has been launched recently Ear (stick) the headphones are available in the US and they’re doing quite well, according to Pei, who says a third of ear (stick) sales come from the country. According to CNBC, Nothing has sold half a million units of Phone (1) and 600,000 Ear Headphones (1) – the company’s other noise-cancelling wireless charging headphones – globally so far.

Pei’s goals for Nothing are to become profitable by 2024 (the company is still losing money, he said) and ultimately to challenge Apple’s iPhone in the USA
