Nothing has been teasing its upcoming Nothing Phone (2) since MWC 2023. The company first said the next-gen smartphone would launch in late 2023. However, in a recent interview with Forbes, Carl Pei confirmed that the launch is scheduled for July 2023.
The device was listed in BIS, indicating that the device will be launched in India. In addition, the micro-site listing has confirmed the Flipkart availability of the device. But that isn’t surprising considering Flipkart has been Nothing’s online partner since Ear (1) launch in India.
Previously, we exclusively revealed the model number, which was later confirmed by the GeekBench listing of the device. A new tweet from Nothing reveals the display size, information about Android updates, and more about the forthcoming Phone (2).
