While Carl Pei, the former OnePlus Co Founder, had revealed his new tech startup earlier this year, its first product has yet to be launched. But now, the official has revealed more information regarding its Nothing Ear (1) TWS earbuds in a recent interview.
In an interview with CNet, Carl Pei revealed some additional details regarding the startup’s first product launch and the challenges that were faced during the development process. Pei stated that the company was originally planning on an April 2021 launch for its earbuds, although, issues in the initial iterations of the Ear 1 TWS earbuds caused the firm to delay the launch. The executive has emphasized its focus on ‘transparent products’ that will fit seamlessly into people’s lives.
Thus, the Ear 1 will be mostly transparent, even when paired with their charging case. One can expect a solid white module in the charging case that also houses a USB charging port. The company will also be including red and black contact points to match with the color on the earbuds, making it easier to recognize which respective slots in the charging case house the earbuds. Furthermore, an inverted bubble in the plastic will hold the buds in place. Apparently, this could also be used by fidgeters that enjoy spinning the entire case.
The Nothing Ear (1) TWS earbud will impressively also support wireless charging technology as well. Another major aspect will be its active noise cancellation support, with the earbuds being powered by a 570mAh battery pack that supports fast charging as well. With ANC on, Pei claimed that users can expect up to 24 hours of battery life with the case and up to 36 hours of battery life with ANC off. Furthermore, just 10 minutes of charging the buds in the case will offer up to six to eight hours of battery life, depending on whether ANC is active.
Notably, Pei stated that true wireless earbuds as Nothing’s first product made the best sense for the new startup and that it expects to ship around 310 million units within this year. He believed that differentiating the earphones was also just as important since most TWS earbuds in the market usually look the same, “white with a stem.”
