After releasing a teaser image of the upcoming Nothing Phone (2), the highly anticipated smartphone is set to launch globally in July 2023.
In an interview with Forbes, Carl Pei revealed that the Nothing Phone (2) will launch this July. He also mentioned that it will come with a 4,700mAh battery, a higher capacity than the 4,500mAh of the Phone (1).
Moreover, Pei shared with Forbes why they chose the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor for the Phone (2) over the newer Gen 2 chip. “Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is a proven processor,” he said in the interview.
“It has been thoroughly tested and continuously optimized through numerous updates since its introduction a year ago. We prioritize user experience over being first in the specs race. Also, the latest technology comes at a cost that isn’t always justified from a user-benefit standpoint. Choosing Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 ensures that Phone (2) remains accessible while delivering a significantly improved experience compared to Phone (1).”
Nothing shared a teaser image (above) of the Nothing Phone (2) in May to kick-start the company’s campaign and build interest around the device. As with its other products, this will be a slow burn, as they slowly release different aspects and features of the upcoming phone leading up to the launch.
Other features we expect to see are a 120Hz AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner we saw from the Phone (1), powerful cameras, stereo speakers, fast charging, and more.
In the Philippines, Nothing products are sold in Digital Walker stores nationwide.
