Although Nothing CEO Carl Pei stated that the device will emerge as a "more premium" product than the Phone (1), we haven't heard anything on how much the phone is going to cost. In the U.K., that phone cost £399 (about $490), and Pei's remarks imply that the Phone (2) will probably cost far more. Just let's hope it is more in line with the $699 OnePlus 11 than the $999 iPhone 14 Pro. The good news is that this product should be arriving in the United States soon, as Pei reported to CNBC that the business was in "early conversations" with American carriers about selling Nothing devices. Later, Pei said that bringing the Phone (2) to the United States is a top priority.
The Nothing Phone (2) will reportedly include a 120Hz adaptive AMOLED display, a 5,000 mAh battery, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a "unannounced" Snapdragon 8 series SoC from Qualcomm
The Nothing Phone (1) had a choice of 8GB or 12GB of RAM, 128GB and 256GB of storage, a 4,500 mAh battery, and a 120Hz OLED display. Some of those specifications aren't significantly different from that device. Although the resolution of the Phone (2)'s display hasn't been revealed by rumours, the change from OLED to AMOLED should result in significantly higher image quality. It's unclear whether the transition from FHD to QHD will result in an improvement.
Given how well Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 benchmarks have performed, switching from a Snapdragon 778G+ to a Snapdragon 8 series processor may show to be a huge benefit. If the rumours about an unreleased processor are true, the phone would probably use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Plus. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Plus is anticipated to be more potent than the existing Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
Although it is theoretically conceivable, it seems doubtful that a start-up like Nothing would use a specialised version of the technology, similar to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip used in the Samsung Galaxy S23 variants.
Although a transparent phone isn't exactly what we'd call a revolutionary design, the Nothing Phone (1) stood out for its intriguing design. The Nothing Phone (2) would logically follow that pattern, but we'll have to wait and see how much the design really changes.
Even for a mid-range phone, the cameras on the Nothing Phone (1) were fairly unimpressive, so we'd want to see a significant improvement.
Poor low-light performance and pale, overexposed photos that come up as washed out when compared to devices like the Google Pixel 5a were among of the Phone 1's camera flaws. Due to an overuse of face-smoothing treatments, selfies also came across as somewhat unnatural.
Although the Phone (1)'s camera technology isn't particularly flawed, we're hopeful its replacement can deliver an overall boost in image quality, with better colour and more realistic photographs. Although it would be too much to hope that Nothing will contain a periscope lens, the addition of a telephoto lens would also be wonderful. Even while it would be fantastic, we'd much rather use the resources to enhance the photographs that were already taken.
Nothing OS is intended to be a more pared-down version of the Android operating system, much as OnePlus' OxygenOS. Despite its name, Nothing OS is not a stand-alone operating system; rather, it is a customised Android user interface. The good news is that Nothing hasn't bloated its Android implementation with unnecessary frills, in contrast to several phone manufacturers.
Although Nothing OS 1 was based on Android 12 at first, Nothing OS 1.5 has since been upgraded and is now based on Android 13. Given that the Nothing Phone (2) is rumoured to release before the anticipated release of Android 14 later this year, we anticipate it to follow a similar route.
There is no information about potential revisions, but we hope that Nothing OS keeps its current features.
