Nothing launched the Phone (1), the company’s first smartphone, last year. The success of the iPhone (1) sparked the interest of technology enthusiasts for its successor. Nothing founder Carl Pei has confirmed the release of Phone (2) later this year.
Carl confirmed the news in an interview with Reverse, a US-based publication. He also confirmed the availability of Phone (2) in the US market, which he considers “priority number 1 in terms of markets”.
Along with this announcement, Carl Pei said that the company’s revenue has increased tenfold from 2021 to 2022. Additionally, the in-house team of nothing has grown from 200 people in 2021 to 400 people today.
We achieved almost 10 times the turnover of last year [in 2022 globally] compared to . We made over 200 million US dollars last year; the first year we made something like 24 million US dollars. We are growing quite quickly. We have already shipped over a million products.
Revenue growth clearly indicates demand for Nothing’s products. Carl says the brand will be able to take advantage of component suppliers and manufacturing facilities that initially turned them down.
Carl says the next Nothing Phone (2) will be “more premium” than its predecessor, and software will be the team’s main focus. To that end, the company now has nearly 100 people working in the software team, bringing the best possible experience to current and new phones.
There is not much information about the phone (2) available at the moment. Nothing is planned to keep the same transparent design language as Phone (1) while improving the usability of the Glyph interface.
More information on the Phone (2) should be available in the coming months.
