Leading technology distributor Exertis has been named the UK distributor of Nothing, a London-based consumer tech brand with a focus to remove barriers between people and technology by crafting intuitive, flawlessly connected products that aim to bring joy back to tech.
The manufacturer’s first product, the carbon neutral Ear (1) earbuds, launched in 2021 and feature Clear Voice Technology, three high-definition mics, ultra-light ergonomic design, and transparent veneers to highlight and celebrate the craftsmanship underneath.
Nothing’s Phone (1) was launched on 12th July 2022, and its Glyph Interface with over 900 customisable LEDs, coupled with a transparent, unique look creates a handset which stands out from the crowd.
The transparent back of the phone also homes a wireless charging pad with reverse charge capabilities and an LED charge progress indicator. The Phone (1) showcases camera and video features to produce exceptional images and 10-bit colour videos, meaning it can capture 1 billion colours, create smoother gradients and powerfully true-to-life realism.
General Manager of UK&I at Nothing, Ryan Latham, said: “We are proud to partner with Exertis – one of the UK’s most established, and fastest-growing technology distribution experts. We believe in the operational strength and expertise Exertis demonstrates to support our launch of our debut smartphone – Phone (1) and our ecosytem portfolio as we establish the Nothing brand here in our home UK market.”
Exertis is commonly known as the ‘Home of Android’, and adding Nothing, with its responsive, stripped-back Android experience, is a welcome addition to its portfolio.
Paul Jacobs, Sales and Commercial Director for Mobility and Services at Exertis, said: “We are excited to add the originality and innovation of Nothing to our already-extensive Android portfolio. Nothing’s ingenious creativity could see them grow exponentially, and we are looking forward to working with them to distribute this contemporary technology.”
Exertis will be distributing Nothing’s phones and headphones to new and existing UK customers, giving them a great opportunity to add a unique and ground-breaking brand to their offerings.
