Nothing Phone 2 Amps Up the Style & Specs to Become a True Contender

If you thought the Nothing Phone 1 was a cool-looking but power-lacking smartphone, get a load of the Nothing Phone 2. The latest model steps up performance and functionality that makes it a worthy rival to any top Android phone.



Those who prefer a large screen will love the 6.7-inch 120Hz LTPO OLED screen, which packs a 1080p resolution and 1600-nit peak brightness. The signature glyph lighting integrated into the “2.5D” back has been upgraded, too, shining brighter and with more complex sequences that tell you at a glance whether you’re being called, receiving a text, or if your delivery or Uber is pulling up.



The Nothing Phone 2 runs on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip that offers 80% more speed compared to its predecessor, enabling RAW HDR photography at eight frames and 4K video at 60FPS.



Both rear cameras are 50 MP, with a 32MP front camera. Features like “Action Mode”, “super res” digital zoom, and object tracking produce better-quality videos and images both. Charge time is just 55 minutes, and the 4,700 mAh battery lasts longer (though exact time isn’t specified) than the Phone 1.
