Nothing to spill nothing but ‘The Truth’ at March 23 event

On March 23, Nothing, the new technology company co-founded by Carl Pei, will hold an event called The Truth, where it will talk about what it has in store for 2022. To be clear, it doesn’t appear Nothing will actually launch any new products during this event, but rather give us a hint at what’s to come this year.

In addition to this, the event will be used to showcase a new round of investment into Nothing. Its Series B funding round has brought in $70 million, which will be used to push forward with the development of new products, plus it will help further establish Nothing’s new London Design Hub.

Dig further into the press details about the funding, and you’ll find a further exciting hint at where Nothing may be headed with its product line. “The funding will be used to create new product categories in partnership with Qualcomm Technologies and its Snapdragon platform,” it’s written. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon range of processors and associated technology is most often found in smartphones, along with tablets and laptops.

Rumors of a Nothing smartphone have spread since the company’s formation, primarily due to Pei previously co-founding OnePlus, and also from it seemingly acquiring the Essential brand in 2021, but they have seriously gathered pace over the last weeks. Pei was photographed with several Qualcomm executives at Mobile World Congress and prototypes of a device may have been secretly shown during the Barcelona trade show, plus much has been read into a tweet of his saying simply, “Back on Android.” Rumors claim the first Nothing smartphone may launch as soon as April.

By calling its March 23 event The Truth, we can assume Nothing wants to put the record straight and set expectations for the coming year. This could be related to the continued rumors, and could reasonably go either way: That Nothing is building a smartphone, or that it’s not. Either way, clarification will be welcome. So far, Nothing has released one product, the Nothing Ear 1 true wireless headphones.

The event will be streamed on Nothing’s website on March 23 at 2 p.m. GMT, which is 6 a.m. PT or 9 a.m. ET. If that sounds a little early, then don’t worry, Digital Trends will have all the details ready for when you start the day.

You can now try the OnePlus 11 for free for 100 days — here’s how
Someone holding the OnePlus 11.

Buying a new smartphone is always a gamble in terms of customer satisfaction — mainly because they cost so much and can be so different from the device that the buyer is currently using.

To combat this, OnePlus is giving customers the chance to try the OnePlus 11 entirely risk-free. Starting today, the company is running the "100 Days No Regret" program, which allows OnePlus 11 buyers to use the new flagship for up to 100 days and still be eligible to return it for a full refund.

Deep purple iPhone 14 Pro and Cream Galaxy S23 crossed over

Samsung’s Galaxy S23 is here, and it's quickly become one of the best phones you can buy in 2023. For $800, you’re getting a small but mighty phone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset, long-lasting battery life, and a powerful triple lens camera system with a 50-megapixel main shooter.

But how does one of the best Android phones stack up against Apple’s smallest flagship, the iPhone 14 Pro? It has just as many cameras as the Galaxy S23, a powerful 48MP main camera, and costs $200 more than Samsung's handset.

Nothing Phone 2: news, release date and price rumors, and more
Nothing Phone 1 with Glyph lights active.

The Nothing Phone 1 made its debut in July 2022, and it had a reasonable amount of hype behind it due to the involvement of Carl Pei, a co-founder of OnePlus. It was a quirky phone due to the unique light show on the back that makes it stand out from the competition, but on the software front, it’s very similar to other Android phones out there. It received mixed reviews, though the consensus leaned more on the positive side.

This year, we’re expecting the Nothing Phone 2, as confirmed by Pei in January during MWC 2023. Here’s everything we know so far about the Nothing Phone 2!
