Tesla CEO, Elon Musk has confirmed that his electric vehicle (EV) company is not launching a smartphone marking an end to the rumors surrounding this unreleased product.

Tesla is not launching a smartphone said Musk during a live stream test on social media site X which lasted for over five hours.

Early speculations about this phone started three years ago via online media outlets but there were no official announcements. The story picked up pace when Musk took over Twitter (now X) and it was rumored to be removed from the Play Store and App Store.

While commenting to an X user in 2022, the Tesla Chief wrote he could make a smartphone if any of these companies delisted X. However, he didn’t mention Tesla to come up with its production. Eventually, X remained listed on both platforms and no new insights were available about this phone.
