In an interview with Inverse, Nothing founder and CEO Carl Pei said that the company has decided to make the U.S. our No. 1 priority, hinting that the Nothing Phone (2) could be launched in the US first.

“We decided to make the U.S. our No. 1 priority in terms of markets," Pei says. “We couldn't do it earlier because we were only in our second year and our hands were tied building the team as we were building the products. Now as we're on a more solid footing, we can take a step forward," he adds.

Talking about the company’s growth, Pei says “We did almost 10x the revenue last year [in 2022 globally] compared to [2021]. We did more than $200 million USD last year; the first year we did something like $24 million USD. We're growing quite quickly. We shipped over a million products already."
