Nothing is a consumer tech company that creates digital technology products. Nothing’s smartphone offers 18 hours of use with every charge, and two days on standby, and can reach 50 per cent power in just 30 minutes of charging. The phone is made up of a 100 per cent recycled aluminium frame which makes it light and robust, while over 50 per cent of the phone’s plastic components are made with bio-based or post-consumer recycled materials. Moreover, the company also has released earbuds and a sound stick.
Smartphone startup Nothing locked up a $96 million funding round. The new round was led by Highland Europe, with participation from existing investors GV, EQT Ventures and C Capital. Music group Swedish House Mafia also participated.
Nothing, London, England, United Kingdom, was founded in 2020 by AkisEvangelidis and Carl Pei.
