Qualcomm accidentally revealed the chipset that the Nothing Phone 2 will get


About being on a smartphone Nothing Phone 2 is already working, we know. And we also know that compared to its predecessor, it will come with a significantly more powerful chipset from Qualcomm. While the Nothing Phone 1 offered a higher mid-range in the form of the Snapdragon 778G+, the novelty will have significantly higher performance. The portal drew attention to the topic

Originally, there was talk about the unpresented Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2, but the new smartphone will not aim that high. Qualcomm happened to confirm that the heart of the Nothing Phone 2 will be the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.

So it won’t be the most powerful on the market, but that doesn’t matter at all. This chipset is from the second half of last year and is still extremely powerful. Moreover, compared to its predecessor (Snapdragon 8 Gen 1), it has better results in terms of thermal management and energy consumption.

Given that the Nothing Phone 2 will not have ambitions to beat the most expensive flagships, the choice of this chipset is more than satisfactory. Information about the chipset appeared on Alex Katouzian’s Twitter accountdirector of Qualcomm’s mobile division. The post was later edited and deprived of this information, but it did not prevent the disclosure in any way.

Nothing Phone 2 troubles even expensive flagships. It will get a super powerful chipset


Nothing Phone (1) impressed with several specifications. First of all, with a design that is interesting and different. Whether it’s a translucent back, an interesting light show, or inspiration for the design of competing Apple smartphones. In any case, it is a design gifted piece with almost pure Android.

In terms of price and equipment, it is a very decent mid-range smartphone. However, according to the portal Android Police its successor is coming, which will receive a significant improvement in one of the key features. In performance.

In particular, it should receive a flagship chipset from Qualcomm, probably not presented yet Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2. This would mean not only a good amount of performance, but also, for example, new options for taking pictures, better and faster post-processing and many other advantages.

Compared to the Snapdragon 778G+, it will be a significant performance leap forward. Although on the other hand, this mid-range chipset is definitely not to be thrown away either. In addition to decent performance, it can also boast of its economy and reliability.

Nothing Phone 2: A strong contender with a unique design in the mid-range


After last year’s introduction, the Nothing Phone (1) has sufficiently shuffled the cards among mid-range smartphones. It is no wonder that even in our editorial office it surprised many people so much that it was included in the selection of the best smartphones of the year. As reported by the portal phonearena.comnow comes his follower Nothing Phone 2to compete with several flagships in its class.

The first generation surprised many

At the moment, the smartphone market is more saturated than ever, so it is hard to believe that manufacturers like Samsung, Google or Xiaomi can be beaten by a new manufacturer with their mid-range devices. However, according to most reviews of the Nothing Phone (1), it won popularity right from the start.

The device has worked basically without significant errors since its introduction, and it has also received several updates that make it a reliable smartphone. In addition, it is considered to be a suitable alternative to more expensive flagshipswhile its price starts at approximately €430.

Nothing Phone 2 will also be available for the US market

Unlike the first generation, the Nothing Phone 2 will also be available for the US market. It would mark a pivotal moment for the small company because, in Carl Pei’s estimation, it would it was thus possible to increase revenue from the sale of equipment by at least 30%. This would be a positive fact for the company, since due to several political and economic reasons, the smartphone sales market is currently experiencing one of the biggest declines in history.

How will the Nothing Phone 2 compare to the previous model?

The novelty from Nothing Phone will be available brighter and more energy-saving 120 Hz display with thinner bezels. Faster charging should also be a given, as the company considers the phone’s 33W wired charging to be slow. Nothing Phone 2 will have better speakers and there is also a high probability that it will move forward as well dust and water resistance with IP67 certification.

The choice of processor remains unknown for now

The Nothing Phone (1) model was powered by the Snapdragon 778G, which is among the best in the mid-range class. In this the follower should take a step forward. However, the choice of processor can only be discussed for now. Considering the mid-range smartphone, it should be powerful, but certainly not the most powerful.

MediaTek Dimensity 8200 may be the best choice on the market right now, especially when we look at the price-performance ratio it provides. The MediaTek Dimensity 8200 is on par with chips like the A15 Bionic, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200 found in smartphones costing at least three times the price.

Given that the Nothing Phone (1) uses a Qualcomm chip, that means the company has mastered optimization for Snapdragon platforms and so it is very likely that its successor will be powered by a processor from the same manufacturer. The ideal compromise would be the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, or the upcoming one Snapdragon 7 Gen 2.

Of course, the aforementioned Dimensity 8200 is also a possibility. In the latter case, however, the manufacturer would have to optimize its device for another platform, which is not very likely. However, either option would improve performance over the previous model by around 40-50%.

Design will be decisive in the competitive battle

If Carl Pei & Co manages to deliver a premium mid-range Nothing Phone 2 with the aforementioned innovations and a price tag under €600, we would probably have an adequate competitor to the Pixel 7 or OnePlus 11 devices. it will stand out in designwhich is diametrically different from the mentioned devices.

As the current state of the market shows, users are mostly starting to focus on devices with lower price tags. In the case of comparable devices in terms of performance and functions, a different design may be decisive. This will definitely make Nothing Phone 2 stand out from its competitors. However, we will have to wait a few more weeks for specific specifications.
