Less distraction. More soul. Just pure instinct, formed as a machine. Told through beautiful symbols. Deeper interactions. And brave simplicity.

For a long time we have been waiting for smartphone market disruptors. Few have succeeded. Nothing tried with their Phone (1), but it didn’t exactly set the world alight. Sure, the hardware looked good, but the OS was apparently lacking. Nothing, led by Carl Pei, is back with the unveiling of Phone (2) where greater focus has been paid to the software capabilities and minimalist UI, improved details with the LED lighting strips integration, and USB-C compatibility. There is an updated glyph interface, which includes a new ringtone pack and glyph composer based on synth-like sounds from Swedish House Mafia.

Will Phone (2) make a bigger impression this time around especially given that it will be available in the US? It’s tough to say, but the design language is saying the right things.

Note: we’ll update this feature after 11 July 2023 once the phone launches
