Nothing CEO and co-founder Carl Pei has confirmed two new things. First, he has said that the Snapdragon 8-series will be inside the Nothing Phone (2). Secondly, he has confirmed that the brand will launch a new product in March, but he did not reveal any information on what this could be.
The decision to use the Snapdragon 8-series chipset in the Nothing Phone (2) is a big one because it will give users great performance and speed. This is especially crucial for a device that seeks to be a premium smartphone as opposed to last year’s Nothing Phone (1), an upper mid-range phone running the Snapdragon 778G mobile platform.
The Snapdragon 8-series lineup includes four recent chipsets, such as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and Snapdragon 870. It remains to be seen whether the Phone (2) features the SD8G2, which is currently the most powerful Qualcomm chipset for Android devices.
It goes without saying that Nothing will offer a unique design on the Phone (2). The device may inherit the Glyph interface LED system, which was made available on the predecessor model.
Recent reports have already revealed some details about the Nothing Phone (2). It is expected to feature an AMOLED panel that offers a 120Hz refresh rate. The device is likely to arrive with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. It will also come with support for virtual RAM. The handset is expected to pack a 5,000mAh battery. It will run on the Nothing OS-based Android 13 OS.
