According to a recent article by Inverse, Carl Pei’s new business Nothing is actively poaching former OnePlus employees, and as of right now, 30% of the hardware team and 70% of the software team are from that firm. Even if this rumor isn’t precisely verified information, Carl Pei personally welcomed Kyle Kiang, a former chief marketing officer for OnePlus, to the team.
The Vice President of Nothing in North America, Kyle Kiang, will oversee the introduction of the much awaited Nothing Phone (2). The new Phone (2) is anticipated to be a flagship device with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and will also be released in the US, unlike last year.
Like OnePlus did at beginning, maybe Nothing aims to appeal to tech geeks. After all, most longtime OnePlus devotees agree that the brand has lost its edge recently, creating room for rival businesses like Nothing to win over tech fanatics.
