The Nothing Phone 2 may lose out to flagship rivals in one key area

Nothing CEO Carl Pei drew quite the crowd at Mobile World Congress 2023 when taking to the stage to announce that his company’s next phone, the Nothing Phone 2, will come packing a high-end Snapdragon 8 series chipset. 

In truth, that wasn’t quite the revelation we were hoping for – the prospect of a sneak peek at the phone itself was the real draw at the show – and new information suggests Pei’s announcement might be even less significant than first thought.
