Nothing didn’t want to be left out of the media spotlight with all the announcements made at MWC in Barcelona this week, so it started a major teaser campaign for the upcoming Phone (2).
We can expect to learn more about the impending device over the next weeks or months since it is a strategy Nothing CEO Carl Pei appreciates and has employed often in the past, most notably at OnePlus before launching Nothing. It all starts with the chipset. The Nothing Phone will make use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 series (2).
Unfortunately, the company didn’t provide any other details. So, we’re going to assume that the Nothing Phone (2) will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, much like many of the next top Android smartphones.
The introduction of the Nothing Phone (2) in the US during the third quarter of this year has been confirmed by Carl Pei (between July and September). If that launch window really happens, it may use the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2—if there is such a thing.
The price difference between the mid-range Phone (1) and Phone (2) was already known to us, so the news isn’t particularly startling. Yet, it’s unclear just how much higher-end. Would it compete as a full-fledged flagship against products like the Galaxy S23 Ultra or rather as a “flagship killer” against products like the OnePlus 11.
Let’s wait and see. Previous sources said that the next device will include 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 120Hz OLED display, and a 5,000 mAh battery. We’re curious to see how long the transparent back and Glyph LEDs will last.
