Exciting news has just arrived from Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus and founder of Nothing. It seems that the developers of the Android launcher Blloc have joined Nothing. This news comes shortly after the company acquired the original team that worked on OxygenOS. Details are provided below.


For those who are unfamiliar with Blloc, it is a launcher for Android phones that focuses on simplicity and productivity. The interface used here is called “Ratio” and involves widgets on the screen that update in real-time. It helps you focus and optimizes your digital life. The applications are organized into categories directly on the screen, and the interface is black and white.

We don’t know exactly what the Blloc development team will bring to Nothing OS. However, they are now joining the developers of the first version of OxygenOS, and decisions will likely be made together. Although the Nothing team was fragile at the beginning of their journey, they managed to deliver a clean operating system for the first smartphone in their portfolio.

The Nothing Phone (1) recently received Android 13, along with Nothing OS 1.5.2. It brought extra customization options for the bright Glyph interface, camera optimizations, animations, a media player, new widgets, and even apps that open up to 71% faster. And thus, a phone priced at around 2250 lei became the most popular midrange smartphone of 2022.

Clearly, Carl Pei has big plans, and Nothing has potential. Along with a relevant software team, powerful hardware, and an iconic design, the Nothing Phone (2) is poised to be a new hit!
