Nothing, almost two years after releasing its inaugural phone, has announced that its follow up device – Nothing Phone 2 – will go on pre-orders starting June 29 via Flipkart in India and offer exclusive pre-order offers to its customers who make reservations through that platform.
Pre-order customers must make a refundable deposit of Rs. 2,000 which will be applied towards their final device purchase price. In addition, Pre-order customers are being treated to an exclusive accessories package and instant cashbacks will be offered by leading banks upon placing their pre-order.
The company strives to offer flagship experience at an accessible price point and has pledged three years of Android OS updates and four years of security patches, falling short of what major handset makers such as Samsung or OnePlus offer.
In terms of specs, the Nothing Phone 2 should feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset coupled with 8-12GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB UFS 3.1 storage capacity. Furthermore, its large 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display will support fast charging while boasting a 120Hz refresh rate for an enhanced visual experience.
Carl Pei and his team have done hard work to recreate the aesthetics of the original Phone 1. It will feature a transparent-backed design with Glyph LED lighting that syncs up with call and message notifications, more compact design with rounder edges, slimmer profile and an eco-friendly frame made with recycled and bio-based materials for manufacturing; plus its carbon footprint will be 5kg lower than its predecessor!
Technical specs are certainly important, but most people choose their smartphones based on aesthetic considerations alone. So it is crucial that Pei and his team have achieved perfection when it comes to designing the Phone 2’s aesthetics.
The phone is also expected to provide increased endurance due to its large 6.7-inch display, faster processor, and efficient chipset. According to the company, its battery capacity will increase from 4,500mAh on its predecessor phone – giving an impressive endurance rating of 108 hours.
