Arriving Soon: The Nothing Phone
Smartphones have become integral to our lives, and the ability to stay connected to the world is invaluable. But, with the increasing prevalence of these devices, has come the negative consequence of the overuse of technology. To counter this downward spiral, Carl Pei (the founder of the technology company, Nothing), is set to launch their revolutionary product, the Nothing Phone, in the United States.
The Nothing Phone is a no-frills device designed to help its users embrace minimalism and combat the “vertical abyss” of constantly checking notifications. It is a simple device with no extra features. Depending on the model, the Nothing Phone features a 5” display, a headphone jack, a microphone, and a simple charging cable. Each phone runs on a basic version of Android (7.1 Nougat) with no Google Play Services or third-party applications.
Though seemingly limited, the idea behind the phone is not to make it a replacement for the smartphone, but to provide an alternative for the moments when its overuse needs to be avoided. By only enabling basic calls, texts and alarm reminders, the Nothing Phone allows you to focus on the task before you, free from the temptation of notifications or constant usage. In particular, the device is intended as an excellent choice for students who need a reliable device for taking notes, studying, or using it as an alarm clock.
The goal of the Nothing Phone is to reduce technology’s negative impact, which has become increasingly more evident in recent years. The team behind Nothing wants to encourage its customers to disconnect and be present in their experiences without the constant pull of their devices. The phone sells itself as a tool to rediscover life without the distraction of being constantly connected.
Though the Nothing Phone was not initially launched in the USA, Carl Pei and Nothing are now set to offer their innovative technology to a new audience. By presenting the US with an alternative to the conventional smartphone, Nothing hopes to change the way people view their relationship with technology for the better.
