Nothing Phone 2 has been revealed in all its glory by Marques Brownleee in his Dope Tech video.

  • Nothing Phone 2’s design has been entirely revealed before the July 11 launch.
  • The reveal comes from Marques Brownlee in his latest Dope Tech video.
  • The Nothing Phone 2 gets 33 individual LEDs on the back compared to 12 on the Nothing Phone 1.

Nothing Phone 2 design has been revealed in all its glory by the top tech reviewer Marques Brownlee aka MKBHD. In his latest Dope Tech video titled Dope Tech: Nothing Phone 2 Redesign, the top YouTuber revealed the new Nothing Phone 2 design exclusively. Marques also explained the advanced Glyph interface on the rear panel of the Nothing Phone 2. The Nothing Phone 2 gets an even more advanced Glyph interface than its predecessor. Let’s look at the Nothing Phone 2 design revealed by MKBHD on his YouTube channel.

Here’s the Nothing Phone 2 in its Full Glory

The first thing you notice in the video is that the design is similar to the renders of the Phone (2) courtesy of reputed tipster OnLeaks. At the time, Carl Pei tweeted the word “Fake” to refute the authenticity of the leaked Nothing Phone (2) renders. However, we can see that the renders were spot on with the design, including the curved back, new split centre, and the camera arc in the Glyph interface. However, what the renders did get wrong is the colour of the smartphone, which is lighter grey than white, and the punch-hole cutout, which is in the centre instead of the top left corner, as shown in the renders.

Nothing Phone 2 will come with 33 LED as compared to 12 LEDs in Nothing Phone 1.

Marques reveals in its video that the Nothing Phone 2 has 33 LEDs on the back panel compared to 12 on its predecessor. The back panel is identical except that the massive centre arc has been split into six, and the camera arc has been split in two. The biggest LED strip in the centre arc, located in the top right, has 16 LEDs and is interactive, like the exclamation LED at the bottom.

While the exclamation LED is limited to the battery level indicator, the new 16-LED arc strip is intended to be a progress bar. It can be used with timers and third-party apps like Zomato and Uber to show the progress. According to Marques, the LED indicator will use live notifications to show the progress of the activity, like Uber distance or Zomato food order location, and more. Thanks to 16 LEDs, this progress indicator LED strip is much more precise and granular.

The YouTuber also reveals that the Glyph interface now offers a new feature called Essential Notifications, which lets users choose important apps. Once set, the slanted LED strip on top will stay on when you receive notifications on your chosen app until the notification is addressed. Additionally, the Nothing Phone 2 now allows users to create custom Glyph ringtones. MKBHD didn’t reveal anything else in his video.
