Carl Pei, the creator and CEO of Nothing Phone, announced at MWC 2023 on Tuesday that the company’s second phone will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 processor. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 could be the chipset, although Pei withheld its precise naming. We think the former is more likely because it would enable the company to charge a lower price for the product. The Upcoming Nothing Phone (2), according to the CEO of Nothing, will be a “more premium” smartphone than the Phone (1).
- Snapdragon 8 series chipsets will be included in Nothing Phone (2).
- This could either be the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
- In Q3 2023, Nothing Phone (2) is anticipated to debut in India.
A flagship processor won’t be used in Nothing Phone (2).
The Snapdragon 8 series chipset that powers the Nothing Phone (2) suggests that it won’t be a mid-range gadget like its predecessor. Recall that the Snapdragon 778G Plus chipset powers the Nothing Phone (1). There hasn’t been much more information provided about the phone’s specifications as of yet. Later this year, Pei intends to release the Nothing Phone (2), but the business is taking its time. With the successor, they want to take their time to make sure it offers the proper mix of premium features.
Specifications for Nothing Phone (2) (rumoured)
The Nothing Phone (2) is also said to include an AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The phone is anticipated to include 256GB of internal storage and 12GB of RAM. Another rumour is that the gadget may have a 5,000mAh battery. Given that this will be a high-end flagship device, rapid charging rates higher than 33W could be expected.
The debut date for the Nothing Phone (2) in India has also predicted a long back. The phone is expected to come in Q3 2023, according to rumours.
