The phrase “ahead of the curve” suggests that the upcoming phone could either have a curved display, or it might have curved edges. That could harken back to the look of the earlier iPhones, such as the iPhone X and XR. It’s actually been reported that the iPhone 15 Pro might be released with curved edges also, so it seems as though this trend could be coming back.
Delving into the specifications, the Nothing Phone 2 is expected to run on Android 13 with the unique Nothing OS. It’s rumoured to be powered by the potent Qualcomm SM8475 Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (4 nm) chipset, accompanied by an Adreno 730 GPU. The choice of chipset suggests that Nothing is committed to delivering robust performance and handling demanding applications with ease.
The smartphone will be available in different storage and RAM configurations – 128GB with 8GB RAM, 256GB with 8GB RAM, and the high-end variant featuring 256GB with a whopping 12GB of RAM. This ample memory and storage combination is sure to cater to varying user needs, whether it’s multitasking, gaming, or storing extensive media libraries.
The Nothing Phone 2 does not stop impressing when it comes to the display. It features a 6.7-inch OLED screen, boasting 1 billion colours, a 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+ support. This setup is expected to deliver vibrant visuals, smooth scrolling, and immersive multimedia experiences. The display resolution stands at 1080×2400 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of approximately 393 ppi. To ensure durability, the display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass.
