Nothing Phone 2 – Here’s all we know so far

Doesn't sound that that big of an upgrade!

The Nothing Phone 2 is launching on July 11, so when this article goes live, we’ll have just a few days left for the launch. So far, we have seen a ton of leaks and rumors about the phone, so in this article, we will be talking about everything we know about the device. We will update the article if any new leak comes up in the coming days.

Starting with the design, at first glance, it looks like Nothing barely made any changes to the design language. The Phone 2 rocks a similar look with a transparent back design, a vertically stacked dual camera setup, flat sides, and a flat display with symmetrical bezels. But, if you look closely, you will notice some design changes. The hole punch cutout for the selfie camera is in the middle instead of the corner. This makes the front look more symmetrical. The rear glass on the phone is curved on the edges to make it easier to hold the device.

And perhaps the most significant design change is in the glyph lighting. On Nothing Phone 1, there were five LED strips, but on Nothing Phone 2, there were eleven. So this means there are even more lighting effects than the Nothing Phone 1. The Nothing Phone 2 has 33 LED lighting zones, almost triple that of the Nothing Phone 1 (12 zones).

The phone will allow users to set the top right LED strip for a particular application so that if a notification comes related to that app, the LED will notify the user and stay ON until the user clears or opens the notification.

The color options remain the same, but the Black now looks more like Gray.

And well, that’s all about the design of the phone.

The phone has a 32MP Sony IMX615 sensor for selfies, compared to a 16MP sensor on the Phone 1.

The battery size is 4,700mAh, 200mAh bigger than the Nothing Phone 1. The charging speed is not yet known.

Finally, Nothing Phone 2 will run on Nothing OS 2.0 out of the box, based on Android 13. The company has already confirmed that the phone will receive 3 Android updates.
