Shortly after the initial video hands-on of the Nothing Phone (2) emerged on the internet, the company swiftly released the inaugural official image of the device. The Nothing Phone (2) will be available in a pair of color variants: a pristine white option and a deep grey shade that carries hints of a captivating dark blue hue.
The Glyph Interface remains largely intact with subtle modifications, ensuring familiarity for users of the previous Nothing Phone (1). The overall design of the Nothing Phone (2) retains a striking resemblance to its predecessor, showcasing a sense of continuity in its aesthetic appeal.
With the extensive coverage provided by MKBHD’s video, the design details of the Nothing Phone (2) have already been thoroughly examined. However, it is worth emphasizing that the color options for the Phone (2) have been officially confirmed. Nothing has chosen to retain the white color variant while opting for a new dark grey hue, which possesses a subtle bluish undertone. This variation in color choices adds an element of intrigue to the overall aesthetic of the device.
The Nothing Phone (2) introduces a subtle yet significant design alteration with its curved edges, distinguishing it from the flat-edged design of the Phone (1). While this change may go unnoticed by some, it contributes to an enhanced ergonomics and a sleeker overall appearance.
Moreover, the Glyph Interface at the back of the device has undergone a redesign, accompanied by new features. Notably, Nothing has divided the LED lights into smaller segments, enabling users to enjoy increased customization options. With a total of 33 distinct LED lighting zones, all controllable via software, users can personalize the appearance of their device to suit their preferences and create unique lighting effects.

The Glyph Interface of the Nothing Phone (2) is thoughtfully designed to synchronize with specific features, including the volume indicator and the timer. When adjusting the volume, the LED light on the device will dynamically respond and move in tandem with the volume levels. Similarly, when a timer is set and starts counting down, the LED light will simulate a rolling motion, providing a visual representation of the timer’s progress.
In addition to these built-in integrations, Nothing is collaborating with third-party applications like Uber and Zomato to expand the functionality of the Glyph Interface. This partnership allows users to experience a broader range of interactions with the LED lights, enhancing their overall smartphone experience.
