Nothing does not yet have a smartphone, but the very young manufacturer now has a home app launcher.
The Nothing brand, created by Carl Pei — one of the co-founders of OnePlus, does not yet have an official smartphone. They have marketed headphones, which offer good value for money, and they tell us about their first smartphone for several months. At the MWC, for example, the smartphone was briefly seen in the hands of Carl Pei, without being presented.
The Nothing phone (1) will be unveiled this summer. The manufacturer has already delivered some details about it. In particular, we learned that the idea will be to offer an open ecosystem, compatible not only with the brand’s other products, including Nothing ear headphones (1), but also with products from other manufacturers, such as Apple’s AirPods. .
A relatively simple app launcher
It has also just put an application launcher online. The latter is relatively simple, it seems based on the one distributed in the AOSP sources (Android Open Source Project). Nothing has customized the font, the icons and added some options… you can install it on the Samsung Galaxy S21 and S22, as well as the Pixel 5 and 6. OnePlus smartphones will also be compatible soon, we appreciate the wink to Carl Pei’s former employer.
As you can see, the launcher also contains three classic widgets, two clocks and a weather widget. Let’s end with a bit of advice: on Galaxy smartphones, you have to go to the details of the Nothing Launcher application, then to the Home screen… and finally you have to select Nothing Launcher.
