The successor to the Nothing Phone 1 will reportedly arrive later this year. The device will reportedly be more premium than its predecessor and software will be a major focus for the company.
The Nothing Phone 1 launched last year and received quite a lot of attention for its unique design choices. It also featured Glyph lights, which are customisable based on different functions.
It will be available in the United States
During an interview with Inverse, Nothing CEO Carl Pei said that the company is planning to launch a new smartphone called Nothing Phone 2. The device will be available in the United States later this year.
It will be a more premium step up from the Phone (1). According to Pei, the United States is a top priority for the company.
In terms of software, the Nothing Phone (2) will be a more software-focused device than the first iteration. It will be able to deliver a better software experience that matches the quality of its hardware.
The London-based startup had a lot of trouble with its first phone and it didn’t get an official US release. That’s going to change for the Phone 2, though. It will make the US market its number one priority, and it will fix all the bugs that have remained after the launch of the Phone 1.
It will be a premium device
The Nothing Phone 2 will arrive in 2023 and is set to be a premium device. It will feature a better display, higher-end chipsets and a better software experience.
It is also said to have a higher resolution than its predecessor and will be able to support 4K video recording. The display will also have a 120Hz refresh rate, making it ideal for high-definition viewing.
Carl Pei, CEO of Nothing, recently spoke with Inverse and revealed some details about the upcoming device. He said that it would be a “more premium” version of its Phone 1.
This is because the company doesn’t have flagship offerings like Samsung and Google, so they will try to focus on developing a smartphone that’s more mid-range than a top-tier one.
It will have a see-through back and an updated version of its glyph interface round the back. US consumers are getting bored of the Apple and Samsung duopoly, so they are likely to turn to devices from other manufacturers.
It will be available in India
Nothing Phone (1) was a unique phone that left a huge impression in the smartphone market thanks to its combination of good enough specifications and a great design. It was a hit in India and it’s expected that a successor will be launched soon.
However, the first Nothing Phone had some issues like app crashes, lags and random freezes. It also suffered from a worse battery life and standby drain.
Now, Nothing has reportedly announced that the second version of its smartphone will be launched in 2023 (Unofficial). It’s said to come with an Android v13 operating system and might be packed with a 4700 mAh battery that offers extended hours of use.
The smartphone will be available in two variants, including 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The device is expected to run on an octa-core processor and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip. It will also support Adreno 730 graphics.
It will be available in China
OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei founded his own tech startup called Nothing and launched the Phone 1 last year. It has created a lot of buzz for its stylish design and top-notch performance.
However, the first Nothing Phone was only available in China and it isn’t currently sold in the US. That’s because American carriers demand Android manufacturers accommodate specific alterations, together with preinstalled apps.
But that’s all changing with Nothing, which has grown in the past few years and is now employing up to 400 people. In addition, its revenue has risen from $24 million in the first year to $200 million in 2022.
The company plans to release a new flagship smartphone, dubbed Nothing Phone 2, in the United States later this year. It will be a more premium device than the Phone 1, according to CEO Carl Pei, and it will have a stronger focus on software.
