Carl Pei Reveals Nothing Phone (2) Powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1

Nothing Phone (2) to Feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, Confirms CEO Carl Pei. Nothing CEO Carl Pei has confirmed that their upcoming premium smartphone, the Phone (2), will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Pei shared this news on Twitter and highlighted several reasons for choosing this chipset. Despite being a year old, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 showed significant performance improvements compared to the Phone (1), which uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 was able to open apps on the Phone (2) twice as fast and offered an overall performance boost of 80% compared to the previous model.

Carl Pei emphasized that the choice of Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is not solely based on performance, but rather the overall package. Opting for the Snapdragon 8 series chip over Snapdragon 7 brings improvements in battery life, network connectivity, and camera capabilities. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, built on the TSMC 4nm process, is known for its enhanced efficiency compared to the original Samsung-fabricated Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It features an improved 18-bit image signal processor, enabling Nothing to offer additional features like RAW HDR and 4K recording at 60fps on the Phone (2). By selecting a slightly older yet still powerful chipset, Nothing can potentially achieve a more cost-effective solution compared to the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

The confirmation of the Nothing Phone (2) being powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is not surprising, as it was previously announced during MWC 2023 by Carl Pei and Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon. A Qualcomm executive accidentally revealed the specific chipset on LinkedIn, confirming the earlier announcement. For those disappointed with the Snapdragon 778G+ on the Phone (1), the confirmation of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset in the Phone (2) brings excitement for those seeking a unique smartphone experience.
