Next month will see the release of the Nothing Phone 2, and thus far, we’ve heard some very intriguing information about Nothing’s next project. The company’s choice of an older flagship chipset this year is a great method to demonstrate to the public that they do care about the needs of the majority of Android users. For anyone searching for a new phone, the most recent tip we have received may cause some concern.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, which was last year’s flagship CPU, is what the Nothing Phone 2 is expected to debut with. While that chipset is amazing even by today’s standards, the most recent rumor sheds light on the pricing, and it is not looking good.
According to information from a French news source, the Nothing Phone 2 will cost a whopping €849 (about $934) for the 512GB model. It will start at €729 (about $802). Now, this price would have been acceptable, but the phone comes with a chipset from last year, and don’t forget that you can also get a cheaper phone that uses Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
Now, there is a good possibility that the Nothing Phone 2 won’t cost this much, so I would suggest you to take this with a grain of salt. The corporation has been concentrating on producing an affordable phone, therefore a non-flagship phone cannot possibly attract a flagship price.
Since there are many newer options available at that price point, people would not want to pay that much for a phone that is essentially from 2022, and even though the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is a great chipset, people would want to get the newest chipset for that price. Therefore, anything under €700 makes a lot of sense for the phone. Anything above €750 could spell trouble for the company.
The debut of the Nothing Phone 2 is scheduled on July 11. We will keep you informed of any new details as they emerge.
