Nothing has announced the key sales partnerships that will be involved in the launch of the Nothing phone (1), including an exclusive deal with O2.
The Nothing phone (1) is set to become the O2 network’s exclusive UK phone available in store and online, according to an official announcement from commercial partners for the phone before its expected summer 2022 launch.
In addition, the device will also be available at Telekom Deutschland stores in Germany and Flipkart in India, but availability in the US is not yet known.
Carl Pei, CEO and co-founder of Nothing, stated: “When we started Nothing, we wanted to bring back the excitement we once had for the technology industry. By joining forces with leading telcos and retailers, we look forward to shaking up the smartphone market together. We can’t wait to show the world the phone (1) later this summer.”
Gareth Turpin, chief commercial officer for Virgin Media O2, said: “We want O2 customers to always have access to the latest and greatest technology. The Nothing (1) phone combines great design and technology to make it truly unique for our customers. I am thrilled that we are partnering with Nothing to become the UK’s exclusive network provider as we continue to reimagine connectivity, offer our customers more choice and enjoy the benefits and value they expect from O2.”
This partnership represents another exciting milestone on the path to the launch of the Nothing(1) phone, the future of which is still a bit of a mystery. We know for sure that the device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, and we’ve also taken a close look at the software since the release of the Nothing OS launcher, but the key specs regarding the screen, camera, and even the design itself remain under wraps. We will be keeping a close eye on credible rumors before the phone is released this summer.
