Nothing Phone (2) Will Be Much Stronger, but Still Weaker Than Most Other Flagships

A Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip could power the Nothing Phone (2). A recent post from a Qualcomm executive let it slip that, seemingly, the next Nothing flagship device would run on the company’s 2022 chip instead of the one shipping with 2023’s current flagships. That would leave the phone much stronger than the Nothing Phone (1), which was powered by the mid-range Snapdragon 778G+, but still wouldn’t bring it up to par with more premium Android devices.
