Nothing Phone (2) will use a Snapdragon 8 series SoC


It’s official, the Nothing Phone (2) will use a Snapdragon 8 series SoC. The company has confirmed that during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

The company did it in an interesting way. Its CEO, Carl Pei, posed for a picture with Qualcomm’s CEO, Cristiano R. Amon. They posed with a jersey that had the name of the phone on it, and the number 8 under it.

Nothing’s official Twitter account retweeted that, and flat-out confirmed that the Snapdragon 8 series will be used. That basically means the Nothing Phone (2) will use either the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip.

Your guess is as good as ours, but let’s try to guess. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is still an immensely powerful chip with excellent power consumption. It could enable Nothing to keep the price lower. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 would cost considerably more.

It remains to be seen if it will be the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 or the Gen 2

On the flip side, Nothing may be going for the “flagship killer”-esque phone with the Nothing Phone (2), and stuff the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 on the inside. We do wonder what its price will be in that case.

The Nothing Phone (1) features the Snapdragon 778G+ SoC, so the Snapdragon 8 series chip will be a considerable improvement. The phone is quite affordable at the moment, at €469, but we do expect its successor to cost significantly more

If we had to guess, we’d say that Nothing will go for the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 for pricing reasons. There’s also a good chance it may have different plans, so we’ll see.

The Nothing Phone (2)’s design is still a mystery, but Nothing will likely keep to its style. LED lights on the back are expected once again, along with a see-through glass backplate.
