Nothing, the popular company, likes to play the teaser game properly, and in recent months, the buzz for the Phone 2 has skyrocketed. The Nothing Phone 2 is now formally available and offers numerous upgrades over its predecessor.
This Nothing Phone 1’s successor appears to improve on all the positive aspects of the original model while targeting a slightly higher market sector. Despite this, it will still be less expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S23, the iPhone 14, and the majority of the other top smartphones.
Phone 2 might appear to be the same as Phone 1, but the new model has a rounded rear that makes it more comfortable to hold. Additionally, the Glyph interface was updated, and it now has 11 segmented LED strips and 33 total LED illumination zones. It presents fresh applications for alerts, like volume control and timer indicators.
For Essential Glyph notifications, you may assign particular apps to the top left LED, which will remain lit until you delete the item from your notification settings. Nothing is also making its Glyph interface SDK and API available to developers, so in the future, we’ll probably see even more creative use cases.
The 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor in the back’s primary camera now has OIS and EIS image stabilization and enhanced HDR and Motion Capture settings. The 50MP ultrawide cam has Advanced HDR features in addition to using the same Samsung JN1 sensor as its predecessor.
The SD 778G+ chipset from Phone (1) has been replaced by a Snapdragon 8 + Gen 1 chipset in Phone 2. The battery capacity has increased to 4,700 mAh, and cable charging has been increased to 45W, while wireless charging is still just 15W. Nothing OS 2.0, which is based on Android 13 and adds new widgets, theme colors, folder layouts, and illustrated covers, takes care of the software front.
