Nothing Phone (2), the follow-up to Phone (1), is in the pipeline with a launch scheduled for British summer. Ahead of the launch, the phone’s specifications are reportedly listed on the phone benchmark platform Geekbench. According to the news report doing the rounds on the internet, the Phone (2) would be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip.
Earlier, Nothing’s CEO Carl Pei in an interview with Inverse had said that the Nothing Phone (2) will debut later this year. “We’re developing a smartphone that’s more premium than the Nothing Phone (1) and software will be a big focus area for us,” Pei said in the interview. The Phone (2) is still a flagship just like the Phone (1), he added.

Nothing Phone (2) has appeared on Geekbench with the model number A065, according to a report on MySmartPrice. The listing has revealed the performance unit details of the Phone (2).

The listing on GeekBench says that the Nothing Phone (2) will be powered by a Snapdragon processor codenamed taro, which essentially is the codename for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The processor has recorded a peak clock speed of 3.0GHz. The system-on-a-chip is equipped with three performance cores clocked at 2.5GHz and four efficiency cores clocked at 1.8GHz.
