Nothing Technology Limited (stylised as NOTHING) is a London-based consumer technology company founded by Carl Pei. It has officially entered the Android mobile market with the launch of its first smartphone named Nothing Phone (1). Pei had started the OnePlus brand in 2013 along with Pete Lau and in 2020, Pei left OnePlus to start Nothing and the first product was Nothing Ear (1) earbuds.

The first smartphone from the company has been making headlines for its out of the box design.

The smartphone has been unveiled during a live event in London.

It is likely to be available for sale in India from July 21, 2022 on Flipkart. The company has already made it available for pre-order in India through e-commerce portal Flipkart.
