Nothing’s Phone 2 has officially arrived! The Phone 2 features a number of improvements over the Phone 1, including a faster processor, bigger battery, and larger screen. It also has a more refined design, with the same transparent back that shows off the phone’s internals.
Everything to Note about the Nothing Phone 2
On the front, the Nothing Phone 2 spots a bigger 6.7-inch display, up from 6.55 inches and offers a claimed peak brightness of 1,600 nits.
One of the most notable changes in the Phone 2 is the new Glyph interface. This is the system of flashing light strips that Nothing used to great effect on the Phone 1, and it’s been improved in a number of ways. For example, there are now more lighting zones contained within the Glyph interface, which allows for more granular effects.
This lets users use the light strips for a couple of things when your Phone (2) is laid down on its back, the light strips can show the countdown of a timer, and the volume level.
Another area where the Phone 2 has been improved is performance. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, which is a flagship mobile processor, making the Phone 2 capable of handling even the most demanding tasks with ease.
The Phone 2 also has a larger battery than the Phone 1. It’s now 4,700mAh, which should give you a full day of use on a single charge. The phone also supports fast charging, so you can quickly top it up if you need to.
The Phone 2’s camera has also been improved. The main camera is now 50 megapixels, and the ultrawide camera is 12 megapixels. The selfie camera has also been upgraded to 32 megapixels. Nothing claims that the camera has been improved under the hood, with better HDR and video recording capabilities.
The Phone 2 runs Nothing OS, which is the company’s custom version of Android. Nothing OS is based on Android 12, and it’s designed to be clean, simple, and easy to use. Nothing has promised three years of major Android updates and four years of security updates for the Phone 2.
You can now do more with the glyph lights using software, for instance, there’s a new feature called “Essential Glyph Notifications” that lets you turn one of the light bars into a notification light for contacts or apps of your choosing. One strip can also now act as a progress bar,
The Nothing Phone 2 is available in the US starting at $599. It’s available in two colors: white and black. Preorders start today, and the phone will be publicly available on July 17th.
