Details about the Phone 2 are limited as of now but recently a Qualcomm executive accidentally revealed that the handset will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset. This is a significant upgrade over the Phone 1 which gets the Snapdragon 778G+ SoC under the hood. The device is also rumored to pack an AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz and an FHD+ resolution. It will likely run on Nothing OS-based Android 13.
The upcoming Phone (2) is speculated to feature 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. Reports suggest that it will be equipped with a 5,000mAh battery; however, details regarding its fast charging capabilities remain undisclosed. Similar to its predecessor, the Phone (2) is anticipated to support wireless charging.
