Ahead of the Nothing Phone 2’s official launch next month, leaking OnLeaks published unofficial renders based on a prototype of the new device via Smartprix. You might be disappointed if you’re expecting the phone to be a radical departure from Nothing’s previous devices, as it looks like the basic design of the Phone 1 lives on in its successor.
But there are a few differences to be aware of from the renders Smartprix warns that the design of the phone may have changed since the production of this prototype. Most notably, the flat, boxy top and sides of the Phone 1 appear to have been given more curves for the Phone 2. As Android Authority notes that it makes the Phone 2 look like an iPhone 6 next to the iPhone 5-style design of the Phone 1. Smartprix notes that the front and back of the Phone 2 also have a subtle curve.
If these renders are accurate, it looks like the back of the Phone 2 will also have a flashing glyph interface similar to the Phone 1. But while the overall shape of the glowing bars is similar, several of them are split into separate stripes, such as around the wireless charging coil and the dual cameras. Renderings match a cropped image of handset Nothing released last month.
Nothing says officially that the Phone 2 will be announced in July, a year after the launch of its predecessor. The phone has already been announced to be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, have a larger 4,700 mAh battery, a 6.7-inch display and – unlike the Phone 1 – will be officially launched in the US.
