The next version of the UK brand's Android phone arrives in July -- and this time it's coming to the US.
A recent graduate of the University of Minnesota, Nina started at CNET writing breaking news stories before shifting to covering Security Security and other government benefit programs. In her spare time, she's in her kitchen, trying a new baking recipe.
The phone brand, which was launched by OnePlus founder Carl Pei in 2020, is relatively new to the market but has already gained attention for its affordable price and design. Pei tweeted Tuesday that the next operating system, Nothing OS 2.0, will also be launching to Nothing Phone 1 users by the end of August.
CNET's Andrew Lanxon admired the Nothing Phone 1, a 5G device, for its "unique, flashy design" and "solid processor and camera performance."
On the Nothing 1's £399 price tag, Lanxon said, "It's a low price, but what you get is a phone that feels like a premium product."

Will the Nothing Phone 2 be available in the US?
Unlike its predecessor, the Phone 2 will launch in the US alongside its release in the UK and Europe. There's no word yet on what price point it will be offered at, or whether you'll be able to get the phone through a carrier.
While the Nothing 1 did not launch in the US, you can get your hands on a beta of the company's first phone for $299. However, CNET's Mike Sorrentino said that just because you can, doesn't mean you should. The phone mainly supports 4G, limiting carrier compatibility, and some apps may not function properly with the beta.
