The unannounced Nothing Phone (2) will feature a Snapdragon 8 processor. That’s what founder Carl Pei announced today on Twitter. The Android smartphone, which is likely to feature the top-end model, will thereby go after the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
From the Fira de Barcelona, the news is hurled into the world. At that location, Mobile World Congress 2023 is currently taking place: one of the largest technology fairs on earth.
Nothing Phone (2) follows Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is undoubtedly the Android flagship of the moment. Released early last month, the smartphone carries impressive features. One of them is the unprecedented computing power that comes from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
Although we do not yet know exactly which model is involved, the Nothing Phone (2) follows suit. Carl Pei shows off a photo on Twitter with Qualcomm boss Cristiano R. Amon. Completely in soccer style, the two men are pictured wearing sports jerseys. The name is Nothing Phone (2), the back number eight.

Interestingly, by the way, the exact type number is not shared with the world. So it could be not only the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but also the Snapdragon 8 Gen2+. The latter chip has yet to appear.
Either way, it does represent a really big step forward for the Nothing Phone (2). Last year, the company launched its first Android smartphone. At the time, that model was still equipped with a Snapdragen 778G.
What do we know about the Android smartphone?
The Nothing Phone (1) grabbed quite a bit of attention last year. Not only did the smartphone come from OnePlus founder Carl Pei, but it also managed to shake up the market a bit. On the back, the device carried hundreds of LED lights.
Big question, of course, is what else the company can do with its second Android phone, the Nothing Phone (2). In any case, the rumors do not lie and already seem to paint a delicious picture.
