At the end of January 2021, Nothing, the company, made its debut and subsequently released one phone along with a couple of TWS buds. Now, the company is gearing up for the launch of its second phone. With a deliberate approach, Nothing aims to establish itself as a distinctive brand within the fiercely competitive smartphone market, despite the challenges and regulations it entails.
Mark your calendars for the official unveiling of the Nothing Phone 2 on July 11. The highly anticipated device has already been subjected to official confirmations from Carl Pei & co., while unofficial leaks have also been circulating. Here’s a comprehensive overview of everything we know about the upcoming device.
The upcoming Nothing Phone 2 is expected to come with some notable improvements compared to its predecessor. It is rumored to have a more powerful chipset called Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which will provide faster performance. The phone will also have 8 or 12GB of RAM, allowing for smoother multitasking, and 128 or 256GB of storage to store all your files and apps.
The display of the Nothing Phone 2 is said to be 6.7 inches in size and will offer a high-definition resolution. What’s exciting is that the display will have a fast refresh rate of 120Hz, which means smoother scrolling and animations.
For those who were hoping that the company would release a smaller-sized phone, founder Carl Pei explained that creating a compact version costs just as much as developing an entirely new product. He also mentioned that there aren’t many people who buy small phones, so the focus remains on larger devices.
In an exciting update, Nothing revealed the design of the new charging cable that will come with the Phone 2. Surprisingly, the cable itself gained a lot of attention, with over 100 comments on the post.
This shows that even small details like a cable can generate significant interest among consumers. Marketing is a crucial aspect for a lesser-known brand like Nothing, and Carl Pei is skilled in creating effective marketing strategies.
When it comes to the camera, the main camera of the Nothing Phone 2 is expected to be similar to the previous model with a 50MP sensor and optical image stabilization (OIS) for better image quality and stability. However, there is not much information available about the other cameras on the phone.
One of the significant improvements in the Nothing Phone 2 is the new chipset, which should enhance the overall performance of the device. The software is also expected to be more refined, providing a smoother and more user-friendly experience. Additionally, the company plans to introduce the Phone 2 to new markets, expanding its availability to more people around the world.
