OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei left the smartphone manufacturer last year. He later confirms that he is working on a new venture. Now, Pei confirms that the new company is Nothing. In an interview with The Verge, Pei spoke at length about his new startup. One key difference between OnePlus and Nothing is that the latter is not affiliating with BBK Electronics. However, it is uncertain if the company will make smartphones at this point.
