Nothing reveals the products to be announced on April 18

 

Nothing teased earlier this week a new product announcement scheduled to take place on April 18. Although we didn't expect the company to unveil what will be announced until closer to the actual reveal date, Nothing thought it would be better this way.

 

Over the weekend, Nothing has taken to Twitter to confirm that two pairs of earbuds will be introduced on April 18: Nothing Ear and Nothing Ear (a). That means that we won't be seeing any new phones during the event, unless Nothing pulls a "one more thing" moment.

 

2024 is the year we're unveiling the ultimate iteration of Nothing Audio with two new products that reflect the culmination of three years of design and innovation. What we envisioned from the start - premium for everyone that isn't about market price, but user preference.

 

The launch of these two upcoming products marks an important milestone for Nothing, as the company decided to reset its naming strategy. Basically, Nothing has dropped the numbers from the names of its products "to center the focus around the product and the unique experience it delivers for each user."

 

It's one way to simplify a portfolio that expands every year with dozens of new products. Time will tell whether or not Nothing's new naming strategy will have a positive effect on the brand.


Infinix could finally be making its way to the US!

 

Infinix has some pretty awesome phones under its belt. The company has come up with a bunch of pretty cool ideas for its phones. The only problem is that those of us living stateside can only watch from the sidelines. This is because Infinix does not sell its phones officially in the US as they operate pretty much only in Asia, Africa, and Europe.

 

That could change soon, according to a report from Android Headlines. The publication claims to have heard from a trusted source that Infinix is expected to make its way to the US market in the near future.

 

There are signs that this could indeed be happening. A report from MySmartPrice from a couple of weeks ago revealed that the Infinix GT 20 Pro was spotted at the FCC. Usually phones sold in the US need FCC approval before they hit the shelves, so this does lend some credibility to the report.

 

That being said, it should be pointed out that the US market is extremely competitive. You have brands like Apple and Samsung that are clearly dominating the market, so it will be interesting to see how Infinix fares.


Nothing is in no rush to launch its phones in the US

 

Nothing announced its brand new budget handset, the Nothing Phone (2a), last week. Unlike the Nothing Phone (2), the (2a) is not widely-available in the US. If customers want to get their hands on it, they'll have to sign up as a developer in order to do so. But why is Nothing seemingly avoiding the US market?

 

Speaking to Harish Jonnalagadda of Android Central, Nothing co-founder Akis Evangelidis basically told the publication that the company doesn't think it's the right time yet. According to Evangelidis, it seems that he feels that the company is still quite young and they need to be "strategic about our efforts".

 

He acknowledges that some level of presence in the US is necessary, it isn't the right time to go all-in. The Nothing Phone (1) also largely skipped the US market. It was available to purchase as a "beta" device instead of a mainstream gadget. The Nothing Phone (2) is still the only phone to be commercially available stateside, so it was surprising that Nothing decided that the Nothing Phone (2a) would kind of skip the US market again.

 

We're not sure when Nothing will go all-in in the US market. Maybe that will happen with the Nothing Phone (3) which should be launching later this year, but we'll have to wait and see.


The Meizu 21 Pro is Finally Official

 

Following early reports that it will soon exit the smartphone industry, Meizu has announced what could very well be its last smartphone with the Meizu Pro 21, a flagship-tier Android phone. As such, the device does come with some impressive hardware, all at a price of $700 (when converted).

 

The Meizu 21 Pro is Finally Official

 

Inside the phone is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, which powers just about every major Android flagship this year. The chip is backed by an Adreno 750 GOU and 12GB of RAM, although there's a slightly more expensive variant with up to 16GB of RAM. The phone packs a triple-camera setup featuring a 50MP main sensor, a 10MP telephoto sensor, and a 13MP ultrawide sensor. In front is a 32MP camera for selfies and video calls.

 

In front is a 6.79-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1368 x 3192 pixel resolution, and it does get real bright at up to 1,250 nits of peak brightness. The phone runs on a 5,050 mAh battery, which supports charging speeds of up to 80W (wired) and 50W(wireless). This display is wrapped up in a rectangular chassis which does come with IP68 certification.

 

Meizu recently announced a shift in its company strategy towards the development of AI software for integration with potential future hardware - the change has apparently been in the works for a while now, with Xingji Meizu Group CEO Shen Ziyu stating last year that the company has evolved from a mere mobile phone brand to an "ecological group."


Nothing Teases the Phone 2a's Design Days Before Launch

 

While it doesn't launch at least until March, Nothing's upcoming Phone 2a has been the subject of various leaks, rumors, and speculation. Nothing's marketing has likewise played up the enthusiast crowd's interest for the handset, as seen in a new teaser from the company.

 

A new post on Nothing's official social media page shows an image of the Nothing Phone 2a's rear panel and camera setup, which confirms the design renders leaked not too long ago. In the post, Nothing describes the upcoming phone as a "product of daring design decisions and meticulous engineering."

 

 

While the phone hasn't been fully revealed yet, Nothing earlier revealed the chipset that's inside the device - the company says that the phone is powered by a custom chip from MediaTek known as the Dimensity 7200. According to Nothing, this custom design will offer better software and hardware integration for the handset, which will be the company's third Android smartphone in its product lineup.

 

Nothing is scheduled to officially launch the Phone 2a on March 5 this year.
