Nothing recently shared a major milestone, where, it has managed to sell 10,00,000 or 1 million units of Nothing products which includes the Nothing Ear (1), Nothing Phone (1), and the recently launched Nothing Ear (Stick). While this number might seem small for a company like Xiaomi, Samsung or Apple, it is definitely a feat for a consumer tech brand that is just a few years old. During this announcement, the company’s CEO and OnePlus’s co-founder Carl Pei also confirmed that Nothing Phone (2) isn’t launching anytime soon.

He also took a dig at a few consumer tech brands by saying “We’re focused on doing a few things well, and won’t churn out dozens of products a year like many others” Nothing Phone (1) seems to have all the focus from the company, which will soon get Android 13 OS update.

So, if you are waiting for the next smartphone from Nothing, you might have to wait for a few more quarters.

Nothing Phone (1) so far

Nothing Phone (1) seems was one of the most hyped phones to launch this year, especially considering the fact that it’s a phone from a new brand. However, when it comes to pricing, it is been a rollercoaster of a ride. From a price hike to a massive price drop during the sale, and then a permanent price cut, the first smartphone from Nothing has seen it all.
