He Nothing Phone (2)the next smartphone from the company founded by Carl Pei, will arrive this summereither. This has been confirmed by the company in a tweet in which they seem to affirm that the smartphone will be a “premium” device and not a mid-range one, like its predecessor.
Nothing, yes, has not revealed an exact release dateNor are there any new details about the device, beyond the word “premium” —suggesting that it will be a high-end mobile— and the features that we previously knew about. Among them, which will include one of Qualcomm’s most powerful processors -although from last year-.
We must also take into account that the Noting Phone (1) was announced in mid-July. Therefore, it is likely that the launch date of this new generation will also be during the same month. Nothing, on the other hand, has illustrated the announcement of the launch of the Phone (2) with an image that reveals part of the device and reveals two interesting details.
On the one hand, that the Nothing Phone (2) It will have a continuous appearance with respect to its predecessor. That is, with a transparent back and a lighting system. On the other, it will have a new independent LED on one of the sides. It is not clear what its purpose is, but everything indicates that it will serve as an indicator for notifications and that, for example, it lights up when a message is received or when the smartphone has a low battery level.
The Nothing Phone (2) will arrive with a high-end Qualcomm chip
One of the characteristics that we already know about the Nothing Phone (2) is its processor. The company, in fact, confirmed during the 2023 Mobile World Congress that the smartphone would include a high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon chip and Alex Katouzian, general manager of Qualcomm’s Mobile, Compute and XR business unit, confirmed the exact model.
Katouzian, specifically, thanked Carl Pei and his team “for launching the Phone (2) with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1”, a model present in the high-end smartphones of last year. Of course, although it is a high-end SoC, it is not the most current from the manufacturer, since current smartphones have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
In any case, the fact that the Nothing Phone (2) does not arrive with the Qualcomm SoC does not have to be bad news. This decision, in fact, can make the smartphone relatively cheaper than other models.
