Nothing is known to hype its products before launch, which is true with its upcoming Phone (2) handset. While the Android phone is set to be unveiled on July 11, this has not stopped the UK-based startup from revealing additional details. A couple of new teaser photos have been published that show changes in the device.

The original Phone (1) that we reviewed will arrive with an industrial design alongside a transparent back and unique LED lighting known as the Glyph system. It appears that this will heavily inspire the successor. In a tweet, it showed an updated transparent back and slightly rounder sides on the Phone (2). There are also noticeable differences in the Glyph, which confirmed previously revealed information by the company when it announced the launch date.

Interestingly, an unnamed phone was featured by Forbes in one of their articles which was tweeted by Nothing later. The device in question is believed to be the Phone (2), which featured a selfie camera at the center as opposed to being on the left. This explains why we're getting a larger 6.7-inch screen as this panel size in smartphones usually has a cutout in the middle. Additionally, the handset houses the volume rocker on the left and the power button on the right.

Nothing Phone (2) price and specifications

Other specifications of the Nothing Phone (2) that were previously mentioned include the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, a larger battery capacity, and upgraded rear dual camera modules. It will also feature a semi-transparent USB-C data cable and is expected to run on Android 13 OS, although this is set to be updated to Android 14.

As for the price, the Phone (2) could command a steep price increase over the original Nothing Phone. A leaked listing suggested the base configuration of the handset (8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory) will retail for €729 (~$800) in Europe. It remains unknown if this will set a precedent for the US price.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
