The company Nothing continues to build on the media success it once secured with the release of the cult smartphone Nothing Phone (1). During the Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition in Barcelona, she shared some details about the new model – phone (2). It is now officially known that the successor will be of a higher quality than its predecessor.
The company can be expected to be very measured about the new smartphone in the coming weeks or months – the boss and founder of Nothing Carl Pei has been pursuing such a strategy for a long time while he still works for OnePlus. Notably, it has now been officially announced that Nothing Phone (2) will use Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8-series chipset.
Unfortunately, the company hasn’t announced any further details just yet. We can only guess that it is the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that will be actively implemented in the current flagship smartphones of this year.
According to Karl Pei himself, Nothing Phone (2) will appear in the US for the first time in the third quarter of this year. While the supplier focused on the European and Asian markets when the first model was released, priority is now given to North America. The novelty may even get a variant with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2. It is also known that Qualcomm and Thales jointly presented a commercial version of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with integrated iSIM at MWC.
Unlike Nothing Phone (1), which is mid-range and comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset, Phone (2) will be a more expensive model that might be able to compete with Galaxy S23 ultra-level variants.
Previously there were rumors that the novelty will receive 12 GB of RAM, 256 GB of ROM and an OLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, as well as a 5000 mAh battery. It is not yet known whether the new version will retain the “transparent” case design and the Glyph LED backlight. Qualcomm previously said that the Snapdragon Satellite Direct Service will also be available in future Nothing models.
