Yesterday, an auction for the sale of the first limit series of Nothing Phone (1) started, with the help of which it became known about a limited number of countries where the device will be able to fully work. The “white list” did not include the world’s largest market – the United States – which caused alarm to American fans of the new brand. Now, Nothing has officially confirmed that it has no plans to release Nothing Phone (1) in North America (including the US and Canada). Between the lines of the statement (given below), it reads that the company simply failed to negotiate with American telecom operators or afford to pay for their expensive certification. But there is good news: Nothing plans to launch a smartphone for the US market in the future. It may be Nothing Phone (2).
Statement By Nothing:
“While we would like to bring Phone (1) to the community around the world, we have focused on home markets, including the UK and Europe, where we have strong partnerships with leading local operators. As you probably know, launching a smartphone requires a lot, from providing support for it with the country’s cellular technology to partnering with carriers and local regulation, and since we’re still a young brand, we need to approach this strategically.”
“We have big plans to launch a U.S.-backed smartphone in the future. For now, a limited number of our U.S. private investors will be able to get their hands on Phone (1) through the Closed Beta program. In the meantime, if readers want Phone (1) to be available in the U.S. as soon as possible, they should call their carrier and report us.”
