The UK-based startup, Nothing, has been teasing details about its upcoming phone, Nothing Phone 2, for quite a while now. The company’s CEO, Carl Pei, has recently shared a clearer launch timeline and several specifications of the phone have been leaked by tipsters. The phone has also reportedly acquired BIS certification, hinting at an Indian launch. Here’s a look at what we know so far about the phone’s design, specifications, and launch timeline.
The Nothing Phone 2 is expected to maintain the company’s Glyph Interface for notifications, as on the outgoing Phone 1. The device will have glass panels on both the front and back, with an aluminium frame sandwiched in between. However, there is no indication of either wireless charging or an IP rating yet. The phone is expected to retain the Phone 1’s stereo speakers and two microphones.
Tipster Sunary Gourkhede (@Tech_Wallah) has shared several leaks detailing the phone’s specifications. According to the tipster, the phone will sport a 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED panel with a 120Hz screen refresh rate and an embedded fingerprint reader. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. The phone is also expected to come with NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth, 5G radios, and Satellite connectivity, which could potentially work as an Emergency SOS-like feature. However, this may just be a regular GPS.
The Nothing Phone 2 is expected to have a 50-megapixel primary camera and two other cameras at the rear. It will feature a 5,000mAh battery with support for fast charging. The phone is expected to be available in three variants – 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, 8GB RAM + 256GB storage, and 12GB RAM + 256GB storage.
The Nothing Phone 2 is expected to launch sometime during the UK summer, between July and September. However, Nothing has yet to release any official launch date for the smartphone.
It is important to remember that the above information is based on unofficial sources and should be taken with a pinch of salt. However, the leaked specifications do fall in line with a previous report about the device.
