Last year, the Nothing Phone (1) was released as the first smartphone from Carl Pei’s firm, and it instantly received a lot of attention. Surprisingly, the handset managed to live up to expectations to a large part, demonstrating that the excitement wasn’t all for show. Now, the company has begun to tease the release of its next-generation model, the Nothing Phone (2), and has even announced a launch date, revealing exciting details for tech enthusiasts.
According to a recent company release, the Phone (2) will be available this summer. Although no specific date has been given, it has been confirmed that the smartphone will be available for purchase in the United States. Furthermore, an animated video shared by the company appears to imply that the upcoming smartphone, like its predecessor, will have lights on the back.
While there isn’t much information about the Phone (2) right now, a Qualcomm executive recently revealed that it will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, a significant upgrade over the Snapdragon 778G+ SoC found in the Phone (1). The gadget is also expected to have an AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz and an FHD+ resolution, as well as Android 13 based on Nothing OS.
The Phone (2) is expected to include 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. According to reports, it will also include a 5,000mAh battery, albeit the rapid charging capabilities are unknown. The Phone (2), like its predecessor, is expected to offer wireless charging, making it a must-have device for customers who favor convenience and efficiency in their cell phones.
