Carl Pei's Nothing will release a pair of wireless earbuds this summer
OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei announced his new London-based venture — called Nothing — two weeks ago and unveiled ambitious plans to create a series of smart devices. Now, the CEO has gone into more detail.

Nothing's first product will be wireless earbuds

Speaking to Bloomberg recently, Carl Pei put rumors to rest and confirmed that Nothing’s first consumer product would be a pair of wireless earbuds to be released this summer.

The headphones will be followed by other products later in the year. Pei said Nothing is building an entire ecosystem of smart devices, not just audio products, that will eventually “talk to each other.”

What sort of features Nothing’s first products are going to bring to the table is unclear, but the start-up previously confirmed that it’d be using custom-made components from the start.

Nothing has several big-name investors behind it. The company raised $15 million from Alphabet’s GV division, previously known as Google Ventures, as part of Series A funding.

The creator of Apple’s iPod, Tony Fadell, is behind it too. Twitch co-founder Kevin Lin, and Reddit CEO Steve Huffman are both on board with the project too.
