Nothing has been busy giving us all little breadcrumbs of information about its upcoming flagship phone. On top of that, there has been a design render leak that aligns with some of the teaser images that the company has shared. Let’s go down everything we know so far.

  • Carl Pei has confirmed on Twitter that the Nothing Phone (2) will be packed with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.
  • Beyond this, other rumored specs point towards a 50MP main camera with OIS, a 6.55-inch AMOLED display running at 120Hz, a 4,700 mAh battery, up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
  • Design-wise, leaked renders point towards a very similar aesthetic to the phone (1) with a transparent back and glyph interface. The key difference being that the front and back glass design is now curved, with a curved metallic frame as well to make it easier to hold.

Other bits to note from this leak include a dual LED flash for the camera, an updated glyph lighting interface with more LEDs to create more patterns, and a new red notification light in the top corner.
