Nothing, the corporate behind the Nothing Telephone (1), has one thing up its sleeve. Based on the newest leaks circulating the web airwaves, there’s a Nothing speaker coming down the pipeline.
91Mobiles revealed what appears like a promotional render by way of tipster Kuba Wojciechowski, who has been on the mark with gadget leaks earlier than. The Nothing speaker seems designed to be boxy like its Android smartphone sibling. It additionally has buttons for quantity and energy controls and a “red-accented” button on the aspect—I wouldn’t be stunned if that have been some motion button to activate a digital assistant for sensible dwelling instructions. Or maybe it’s a fast mute button.
The render additionally exhibits speaker cutouts on the entrance. 91Mobiles says they’re stand-ins for tweeters and sub-woofers. It’s not in contrast to different sensible audio system in the marketplace, just like the Apple HomePod, although Nothing’s model appears a little bit extra like an amplifier than a speaker. There additionally seems to be a scrolling LED window, which could possibly be a enjoyable aesthetic addition to the purported Nothing speaker. Since there aren’t any technical specs accessible, we are able to solely assume.
Nothing has actually been teasing one thing on its Twitter feed this week. The primary tweet exhibits what appears like a high quality assurance employee testing the circuits on a tool—if you happen to have a look at the monitor within the background, you’ll see an x-ray shifting round on the display screen. I believe I see parts.
One thing mighty is on the horizon.

The 2 tweets that adopted activated my excessive aversion to insect our bodies. The primary tweet incorporates a beetle—my colleague, Andrew Liszewski, believes it to be a three-horned rhinoceros beetle—accompanied by a cryptic emoji message (your browser might not be capable of present them): “🐞 out, 🪲 in.” The second is a 10-second clip of the identical rhino beetle crawling round. Gross!
G/O Media might get a fee
It’s doubtless these tweets aren’t even speaking about this leaked speaker. Carl Pei, founding father of Nothing and former co-founder of OnePlus, did say final 12 months in an interview with CNBC that the corporate plans to tackle Apple with its smartphone launch. Maybe an excellent cool speaker integrating with the tremendous cool smartphone is a part of that plan. We received’t know something till there’s an official announcement.
