The next project, as expected, will be the production of mobile phones. It was announced this Wednesday at a special event, where Pei spoke about how his company is preparing to become a direct challenger to Apple. They will join the market battle with the richest technology company in the world, they say, this summer, when they will present their first mobile phone, Nothing phone (1).
