Nothing Phone (2) is set to launch in July. The company is yet to confirm the exact launch date but meanwhile, it has been dropping some key details about the specifications and features of the device. Nothing has already confirmed the processor, battery and display details of the upcoming Phone (2) device. The upcoming Nothing flagship will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, which will be a big jump in terms of performance and efficiency over the Snapdragon 778G+ SoC found in its predecessor. 

Ahead of the launch in July, the company has revealed that the Phone (2) will be made in India and cater to the demands of the Indian market. On the announcement, Manu Sharma, VP and GM of Nothing India said “Nothing smartphones are known for their iconic transparent design. These designs require hi-tech manufacturing processes and precision engineering which have led to the enhancement of smartphone manufacturing capabilities in India. Our drive to manufacture in India reflects our commitment towards the local consumers and their demands. We are proud to announce that Phone (2) will be manufactured in India.”

The company has already revealed its sustainability approach for the device. The Phone (2) will have a lower carbon footprint than the outgoing model. It features three times more recycled or bio-based compared to Phone (1). The device will also come packed inside a plastic-free package as well. Also, the phone’s aluminium frame will be made of 100 per cent recycled materials and with 100 per cent renewable energy.

CEO Carl Pei recently confirmed that the Nothing Phone (2) will feature a bigger battery and display. The handset will pack a 4700mAh battery. The bigger form factor of the device has aided in making room for more battery, which is likely to add to the power efficiency provided by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC.

The Phone (2) is also confirmed to feature a 6.7-inch display, which is 0.15-inch bigger than the outgoing model. In addition to this, thanks to a GeekBench listing, it is safe to say that the device will launch with 12GB of RAM at least. It would not be a surprise if Nothing launches its flagship with 8GB of RAM as well. In terms of storage, the device might offer 128GB and 256GB storage options. Here’s a quick look at the specifications and features of the Nothing Phone (2) known so far.
