In March, the CEO and Co-Founder of Nothing, a technology startup, announced plans to launch a Nothing (1) phone within the next year. They announced that they will be launching a new smartphone later this year with a focus on minimalism and an alternative ecosystem for big tech companies like Apple and Samsung.

Nothing Launcher (Beta) is currently available for Android 11 and up. The release will take place against all devices in the coming days.
