Nothing is a UK-Based Startup by Carl Pei. He is the Owner and Co-Founder of Nothing. The company launched its first Phone in July 2022 as Nothing Phone 1. It was the most hyped phone due to its unique design. Nothing Phone 1 has won various awards. Now, the Company is trying to Launch its 2nd Phone Nothing Phone 2, which will be launched in the Summer of 2023 as confirmed by Nothing on their Twitter handle.
OnePlus Staff in Nothing
According to a Report by Inverse, The Nothing Company is trying to make a Big Success with their Upcoming Smartphone Nothing Phone 2. About 70% of the Software Team in Nothing is from OnePlus. Kyle Kiang, who was the former Chief Marketing Officer at OnePlus now left OnePlus and joined Nothing Company and is now leading the launch of Nothing Phone 2. Kyle Kiang does a partnership with T-Mobile of a wireless carrier due to which the sale of OnePlus phones has grown by 524 percent in the US. Both Carl Pei and Kyle Kiang want to break OnePlus from the Saturated phone market.
About 30% of the Hardware Team is also from the OnePlus. According to Inverse, Nothing is trying to target Nothing Phone 2 for Tech Enthusiasts. The device is less similar to Black Dot NFT and Web3. So, we can expect that the company is creating a reliable smartphone. As we know, The Phone 2 featured Qualcomm SnapDragon 8 + Gen 1 Processor which is a high-end chip that provides you a better Gaming Experience and better Performance. The App Opening Speed is twice in the Nothing Phone 2.
New Features in Nothing OS and Custom Rom Support
As we know, 70% of the Software Team is from OnePlus. This team has also created OxygenOS which is one of the cleanest OS and close to Stock Android which has these features like Zen Mode, Game Mode, App Lock, Alert Slider, and faster updates. Now, these Software Developers are developing the Nothing OS. Nothing OS is already closed to stock Android but it lacks features like Game Booster, App Lock, etc. Now, Carl Pei is trying to make Nothing as Old OnePlus which was liked by Tech Enthusiasts.
As we know, OnePlus devices also have good support for Custom Roms. But after the merging of OxygenOS and ColorOS. The company is not releasing Kernals and Unbrick Tool (MSM Tool) for newer devices such as OnePlus 10 and OnePlus 11 Series. But as Nothing provides Kernals. So, the Custom Rom Development is also good with Nothing. Do let us know in the comment section, What feature you want to be implemented in Nothing OS.
Heating Issue in Nothing Phone 1
If we talk about heating in Nothing Phone 1. So, the device only heated while doing gaming like other phones. You will feel the heat while using the device without a cover as the device comes with an Aluminium Frame. But some more optimization is required to control the heating issue in Nothing Phone 1.
As its summer time so, the Nothing Phone 1 heated more as usual. Also, the Gaming Experience is not Good with Qualcomm SnapDragon 778G+. We can expect better Gaming and Performance with Heating Control with Qualcomm SnapDragon 8+ Gen 1.
