The highly anticipated “Nothing Phone (2)” has been teased and is set to launch this summer. The brainchild of ex-OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, this enigmatic device has been shrouded in mystery, leaving tech enthusiasts buzzing with excitement and speculation. Let’s take a closer look at what we know so far about the successor of the Nothing Phone (1) and what we can expect from this potentially game-changing device from Nothing.
Nothing Phone (2): Expected Specifications, Features, Design Leaks, and More
The company’s first smartphone was the transparent, light-emitting Nothing Phone (1), which sold more than 650,000 units globally. Now, everyone is eagerly anticipating the Nothing Phone (2) and wondering what it has in store.
Nothing is teasing its upcoming smartphone at a time when everyone is preparing for the release of the Google Pixel 7a next week. According to an official tweet, the Nothing Phone (2) will debut in the summer of 2023, and the company has provided a sneak peek at the new transparent rear panel.
Nothing Phone (2) Specifications
The Nothing Phone (2) will feature a high-end Snapdragon 8-series CPU, as unveiled at MWC 2023. However, the exact name of the processor has been kept secret. A Qualcomm official unintentionally revealed the secret on LinkedIn, confirming that Phone (2) will be using the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.
The Nothing Phone (2) will also have an adaptive AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and bezels of the same size as its predecessor. The software will receive significant enhancements, as the company has established an internal software team to provide an improved stock Android experience.
Congratulations Carl Pei and the Nothing Team on the launch of Phone2 with #snapdragon 8 series. Looking forward to many more product collaborations.
According to a MySmartPrice article, the Nothing Phone (2) will include virtual RAM, at least 12GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, and a battery that is 5,000mAh larger than the Phone 1’s 4,500mAh battery.
Nothing Phone (2) Design
The manufacturer has released a first glance at the rear of the Nothing Phone (2), which features a transparent panel similar to the Nothing Phone (1). The glyph light strip, red recording indication, and white textured plastic covering the internals are all visible. The indicator on Phone 2 has been redesigned and is no longer circular.

The “Glyph” lights, known for their fascinating tricks and capabilities, will once again be a highlight feature of this phone. The glyph lights will be white, not RGB, and the position of the symbol on the back may be altered.
On the front, the display will still be surrounded by a symmetrical bezel. Whether the Phone (2)’s design will differ significantly from the iPhone or invite comparisons remains to be seen.
Nothing Phone (2) Release Date
The release date for Phone (2) is expected to be announced in late June or early July, as summer 2023 runs from June to September. The more expensive Nothing Phone (2) may debut on July 12, exactly one year after the Phone (1). The Phone (2) will be available in Europe, the US, and India during the summer window.
Nothing Phone (2) price and Availability
The initial Nothing smartphone was a mid-range device that retailed for about Rs 30,000 and had a Snapdragon 7-series CPU and wireless charging. With a Snapdragon 8-series CPU, improvements to hardware and software, and potentially better cameras, it is expected that the company will increase the price. However, there are no rumors regarding the size of the price increase at this time.
The starting price of the Nothing Phone (2) in India is anticipated to be about Rs 40,000, taking into account competitors using the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 from last year. It is advisable to proceed with caution and wait for further leaks or the official announcement before accepting this expected price.
The Nothing Phone (2) will be exclusively available for sale on Flipkart in India, just like its predecessor. The company has already created a web page highlighting the confirmed modifications, such as a premium design and chipset. The announcement of the Nothing Phone (2) has generated excitement among tech enthusiasts worldwide.
With its official teaser indicating a summer release, fans of the brand and curious onlookers are eagerly anticipating the unveiling of this highly-anticipated smartphone. As we await further updates on its specifications and features, it is evident that the Nothing Phone (2) is poised to make a splash in the competitive world of mobile devices.
