Everything seems to indicate that Nothing is preparing to launch a sub-brand that, for now at least, will be limited to wireless headphones.
last october we analyze the Nothing Phone (1), one of the most promising alternative terminals. With this phone, the company owned by Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus, was trying to turn the industry around by trying to deliver a revolutionary device. The attempt, unfortunately, was left at half throttle: the terminal complies, but it does not revolutionize anything.
After this adventure with his first phone, what appears to be a sub-brand called Particles by XOjust like pick up at 91Mobiles. The leak comes from the tipster Kuba Wojciechowski and, apparently, this name has been seen in a firmware that reveals that Nothing is the company behind this brand.
A name and some renders, for now there are no more
Along with this leak come some renderings of wireless headphones and confirmation that Particles by XO has been registered as a trademark in the United States. He has done it precisely under the heading of headphones, but from here the information becomes a bit diffuse.
The publication states that the name is not yet clear of said headphones; It is not known if they will be called XO to dry or if they will appear with the full name of the brand. From what appears in the renders, the design of said headphones is reminiscent of a peanut and somewhat reminiscent of that of the Sony LinkBuds.
The headphones show an in-ear design with silicone connectors to better fit the ear. And instead of following the “downward” trend of most current designs, these headphones sit with the body up. The design is minimalist, but it is not transparent as in the case of Nothing Ear (1). In the images there is also a box that would serve as a charger.
Other data that accompanies the leak is that it will be used active noise cancellation and a low latency codec. For the rest, it is pointed out that these headphones can be focused on a public more interested in fashion. For now, not much more is known, but we will be attentive in case there are any news.
