The stretched out teaser campaign for Nothing Phone 2 continues, this time with Carl Pei doing an interview with Forbes. In the interview, the upcoming Phone 2 is discussed, comparisons to the iPhone are made, and month is provided for when we’ll see the phone launch.
Nothing announced via the interview that Nothing Phone 2 will launch this July, which is a bit more specific than the “summer” timeframe we were provided with earlier this month. The only specific about the device that was shared is the battery size: 4,700mAh, a bump from last year’s 4,500mAh. If you want more, we also know it will run a Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.
Speaking on transparent hardware design, Pei mentions that, “We have noticed numerous concept designs online inspired by our products, which is a testament to their influence. Furthermore, we have observed a few established brands following the path we have trailblazed with our transparent design identity.”
Nintendo would like word, Carl.
What we believe he’s referring to is the Beats Studio Buds, which do come in transparent option. Possible that Beats was inspired by the Nothing Buds? Sure, we’ll give them that, but I feel like claiming Nothing to be the company that trailblazed transparent hardware is a bit of a stretch. It’s been around for quite some time.
July. Transparent Phone 2. Bigger battery. Premium.
