In this rumor round-up, we’ll review everything we know about the Phone 2. We’ll also discuss some things we can glean not from rumors but from Nothing’s short history, the Phone 1, and things Carl Pei has said.
Will you be able to buy the Nothing Phone 2 in the US?
We’ll have to wait and see if the Nothing Phone 2 gets a US release date. We know that Pei is in talks with US carriers. We also know that the Phone 1 has a temporary beta program for US-based buyers. Therefore, it is incredibly likely the Phone 2 would see a launch in the United States. It might not be sold at carriers or even see full support on all carriers, but we’d be surprised if it weren’t at least available for US shipments.
Will there be a Nothing Phone 2?
Carl Pei has confirmed that there will be a follow-up to the Phone 1, and it will be called the Phone 2. We know this from a tweet Pei posted in December 2022. Unfortunately, that tweet’s main purpose was to shoot down the idea that there would be a Phone 2 in the near future. Pei explained that Phone 1 remains the brand’s main focus, at least for now.
What features and specs will the Nothing Phone 2 have?
The Nothing Phone 1 has a distinct look that immediately sets it apart from any competitors. This is thanks mostly to “The Glyph” — the lights on the back of the phone. We don’t know much about the Nothing Phone 2, but we can be assured that it will also have The Glyph.
Performance, Camera, and UI
The Nothing Phone 2 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor. The octa-core chipset comes with Cortex X2, Cortex A710, and Cortex A510 cores clocked up to 3.2GHz.
