Specifications and Features of Nothing Phone (2).
The display of the Nothing Phone (2) smartphone will be 0.15-inch larger than that of the predecessor Nothing Phone (1). That means the successor will come with a 6.7-inch display panel. Again in the teaser image released by the company, a pill-shaped notch cutout is visible at the top of the device’s display. For performance it will use Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. Also, Carl Pei itself has confirmed that they will get three years of Android updates and four years of security updates with this upcoming model.
