Nothing Launcher debuted last month. At the time, the beta edition was only available for a select number of mobile devices – namely some Pixel devices, some OnePlus devices and the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S22 series. Things seem to have changed, and driver compatibility has been extended to all Android devices with Android 11 or later.
So what does Nothing Launcher offer? Right now it’s more of an overview of what’s to come. You can check out the unique graphics and animations, along with what nothing calls Max icons and folders. These two features give users the ability to zoom in on individual apps or application folders by touch-and-hold. There’s also a clock and weather widget, presented in Nothing’s dot-matrix style. Finally, the launcher has a custom wallpaper and a link to download additional wallpapers and three ringtones.
If you’ve never heard of Nothing, the company was founded by former OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei. His first supporters included like Tony Fadell (father of the iPod), Twitch co-founder Kevin Lin, Reddit CEO Steve Huffman and more. Less than a year after launch, the company will introduce its first product, Ear (1). The headphones were unique in their design, created in partnership with Teenage Engineering, but they turned out to be nothing special. Nevertheless, he gave an insight into the direction of the company and the desired aesthetics of the design.
Nothing announced its next product, the phone (1), although it did not provide any additional information. It’s not clear what exactly the phone will create, but the company bought Andy Rubin’s Essential brand and his brands. The Essential PH-1 was quite interesting for its time and partly because of this there is an increased interest in the phone (1). For now, you’ll have to settle for Nothing Launcher, but you won’t have to wait long as the phone (1) is expected to be launched in the summer of 2022.
