Launch of the Nothing Phone 2 is anticipated soon. The chipset to be utilized for the phone was revealed by CEO Carl Pei today. The Nothing Phone 1’s replacement is anticipated to be released between June and September of this year, according to prior sources. With its transparent Corning Gorilla Glass-protected back panel, the first phone from Nothing had a number of distinctive characteristics upon introduction. For the second phone from the firm, enthusiasts anticipate big enhancements. OnePlus co-founder Pei is notable since he founded Nothing in 2020 after leaving the company.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC will power the Nothing Phone 2, Carl Pei stated in a tweet. Pei explained why the Nothing Phone 2 is “a clear upgrade” from the Nothing Phone 1 in a series of tweets.
Initial testing, according to Pei, showed that the Nothing Phone 2’s app launching speed is twice as quick as that of the Phone 1. According to reports, the forthcoming smartphones would perform around 80% better overall than their forerunners.
An octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC powers the Nothing Phone 1. In contrast, aside from speed improvements, the Snapdragon 8 series CPU also provides considerable gains in battery life, network connection, and camera performance.
According to Pei, the Snapdragon 8 series SoC from TSMC, manufactured on a 4nm process, features best-in-class power and heat management. Pei defends both the SoC itself as well as the choice of chipset. Since its inception a year ago, he claims that it has undergone extensive testing and received frequent optimisations via a number of upgrades, indicating that it currently provides the finest experience it has ever had.
For Rs. 32,999 for the 8GB + 128GB model, Nothing Phone 1 was made available in Black and White colour variants. When they were first released, the 8GB + 256GB and the 12GB + 256GB models had price tags of Rs. 35,999 and Rs. 38,999, respectively.
