The Nothing Phone, a new smartphone brand, will launch in South Africa next month in June.

Cernotech, a South African distributor secured a deal to launch the company’s latest products in South Africa, including the flagship Nothing Phone 2 and midrange Nothing Phone 2a.


Nothing Technology is a UK-based consumer electronics brand founded by Carl Pei, the co-founder of another popular smartphone brand, OnePlus.

Philip Goodwin, Cernotech’s product lead said the Nothing Phone 2 and Nothing Phone 2a will go on sale in South Africa by early June. They’ll be sold online and via at least one of the country’s two major mobile operators.

The company plans to establish service centres in South Africa in time, too, but initially, it will adopt a “swap for repair” model, where consumers will have faulty devices swapped out should they encounter problems.
