Further, the upcoming 5G smartphone will debut with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC and will be powered by a 4,700mAh battery. The Phone (2) is expected to be “twice as fast” as compared the Phone (1), with a remarkable 80% overall performance improvement.
In addition, the chipset is expected to come with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage. The Phone (2) will run Nothing OS 2.0 out of the box. It also boasts an SGS-certified carbon footprint of 53.45 kilograms, over 5 kilograms lower than the Phone (1).
