Nothing Phone (2) will unsurprisingly use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC

Even though it hit store shelves in the mid of the last year, the Nothing Phone 1 is nearly a year old now – it was announced in July of 2022. That means a replacement should be around the corner. The Chinese company is developing its next flagship smartphone, and they are currently busy in building up the excitement for the Nothing Phone (2), which is due to arrive in the third quarter of this year. The Chinese brand has started its teaser campaign for the Phone (2) in MWC in Barcelona.

A month ago, Nothing’s founder Carl Pei has confirmed about the arrival of the next flagship phone in late 2023. At the MWC 2023, he officially confirmed that the Nothing Phone (2) will be powered by Snapdragon 8 Series chipset. Qualcomm’s Cristiano Amon was also present at the expo.

Nothing’s founder Carl Pei already confirmed the release of Phone (2) later this year. At the MWC 2023, he confirmed that the phone will be powered by Snapdragon 8 Series chipset, without revealing the exact model number.

Carl Pei doesn’t say it outright, but we’ll assume that it’s going to be the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 powering the Nothing Phone (2). This is the same flagship chipset, which is being used in a lot of flagship Android devices that are coming out this year. Some of the Android phones with SD 8 Gen 2 chip were also launched in late 2022. To recall, recently launched Galaxy S23 flagships, OnePlus 11, Xiaomi 13 flagship phones, Honor Magic 5 flagship phones, and some other phone utilizing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset under the hood.

With SD 8 Gen 2 SoC, the Phone (2) will gain a huge performance boost compared to Snapdragon 778G+ in the Phone (1), so the price of the phone is also expected to increase.

As per the previous leaks, the Nothing Phone (2) will allegedly stick to the 6.55” OLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, so the phone should be roughly the same size as the current model. The chipset will be joined by 12GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, and it could be backed up a bigger 5,000mAh battery. That’s 500mAh over the Phone (1)’s 4500mAh battery.

That’s it. Stay tuned, and we’ll keep you posted once we find out more. We’ll have to wait and see if the next iteration will also get the same transparent back design, alongside the Glyph LEDs on the back.
