UK startup, Nothing, has confirmed the launch date for its second-generation smartphone, Nothing Phone 2. The smartphone is expected to debut with better specs than its predecessor, the Nothing Phone 1, which was launched last year. The phone will be released this British summer and will also be available in the US market.
Specifications of Nothing Phone 2
Nothing has not revealed any specifications of the upcoming phone officially, but earlier reports claim that the Nothing Phone 2 will be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Series processor. However, the variant has not been mentioned. It has, in fact, been touted as a ‘more premium offering’ than the last phone under the brand. The phone will debut with a more powerful processor compared to the Nothing Phone 1, but the exact model of the processor is still unknown.
The company announced via an emailed statement on Wednesday that the Nothing Phone 2 will be released “this British summer”. The launch window suggests that the phone will be launched between June and September this year. This time, the company is expanding to the US market, which was not the case for the previous model.
The company also tweeted the announcement of the launch date along with a GIF showcasing the rear panel of the upcoming phone. The GIF displays the panel with a flashing red LED light. The tweet included a link to a landing page that did not give away any additional information about the phone.
There is no news about the phone’s pricing or variants yet. The company has not hinted at any pricing structure for the Nothing Phone 2, but the phone is expected to be launched as a premium product.
Launch in India
The Nothing Phone 2 is also expected to make its debut in India. The phone was spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website in March. It was spotted by a tipster with the model number AIN065 and is said to have received BIS certification. This puts the phone one step closer to being launched in India.
Nothing’s Co-founder – Carl Pei
Carl Pei, one of the Co-founders of OnePlus, left the company to start his new venture, Nothing. He joined forces with a group of former colleagues to start this new up-and-coming tech company. The initial funding for Nothing came from friends and family, which was later backed by Alphabet’s investment arm, GV.
Nothing’s First Product – Nothing Ear (1)
The company launched its first product, Nothing Ear (1), a pair of earbuds, in July 2021. The earbuds were launched in the Indian market in partnership with Flipkart. The company received a lot of positive reviews for its first product and has set expectations high for the upcoming phone launch.
The upcoming smartphone from Nothing, Nothing Phone 2, is expected to launch this summer and will feature a more powerful processor than its predecessor. While the official specifications of the phone are yet to be revealed, the announcement has sparked excitement among tech enthusiasts. The expansion to the US market and its debut in India make this second-generation phone an important milestone for the startup founded by Carl Pei.
