Nothing, the emerging technology startup, is gearing up to release its second smartphone, the Phone (2), this summer. Positioned as a compelling option in the premium mid-range segment, the device promises an array of upgrades. Notably, it will be powered by the advanced Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, marking a significant leap from its predecessor’s Snapdragon 778G+ processor. Nothing has confirmed notable improvements in battery capacity and display size while emphasizing its sustainable practices throughout the device’s production process. The company’s commitment extends far beyond simply omitting the charger from the packaging.
Recently, Nothing took to Twitter to reveal some intriguing details about the Phone (2). The company proudly announced that the device had earned SGS certification for its impressively low carbon footprint, measuring 53.45kg—more than 5kg less than its predecessor, Phone (1). This remarkable achievement is particularly notable considering the Phone (2) features a 200mAh increase in battery capacity and a 0.15″ larger screen compared to the original model. With a 6.7-inch display, the Nothing Phone (2) is expected to boast an OLED panel, although specific details are yet to be disclosed. The device will house a robust 4,700mAh battery, ensuring long-lasting performance.
While the Phone (2) charging capabilities remain undisclosed, it’s safe to assume that the package will not include a charger. In line with the industry trend, smartphone manufacturers have been committed to environmental sustainability by omitting wall chargers and earbuds from their product boxes. Although critics argue that this cost-saving strategy benefits companies more than the planet, Apple pioneered the movement, and many others have followed suit. Under CEO Carl Pei’s guidance, nothing boldly decided to remove the charger from the Phone (1) packaging and this approach will continue with the Phone (2).
Like its predecessor, the Nothing Phone (2) will receive three years of major Android OS upgrades and four years of security updates. Nothing has implemented several additional measures to minimize the device’s ecological footprint as part of its broader environmental efforts.
