OnePlus successor: Former founder is planning his own smartphone

OnePlus loses its independence and is integrated into Oppo. The co-founder probably didn't like that and he left the company to do his own thing with Nothing. The first product was the "Nothing Ear (1)" headphones. Now a smartphone is likely to follow.

OnePlus alternative: Nothing and Qualcomm enter into partnership

When Carl Pei left OnePlus in September 2020, there was great astonishment. At that time it was already clear that OnePlus would be integrated into Oppo. He did not want to support this development and founded his own startup with Nothing. After headphones, a smartphone is now supposed to compete directly against OnePlus and Oppo. An important partnership with Qualcomm was announced (source: Nothing).

Nothing announces in the official blog that they have chosen Qualcomm's Snapdragon mobile platform. That can only be an indication that the company is developing a smartphone. A tablet would also be conceivable. In order to be able to implement the further plans, Nothing also announces that 50 million US dollars have been collected . The money is put into research and development.

The budget is of course only relatively small compared to large companies such as Oppo, OnePlus or Samsung, but Carl Pei's team has already shown what the startup can do with the "Nothing Ear (1)" headphones.

In the video you can watch the special "Nothing Ear (1)" headphones:

Nothing bought Essential from Android creators

Only that year had Nothing bought the remains of Essential. The Android creator Andy Rubin actually wanted to roll up the smartphone market with it, but failed miserably after a smartphone . We want to hope that Carl Pei has more luck with Nothing and brings good products to market. A new smartphone is not officially confirmed, but everything speaks for it at the moment.
