In an interview, Nothing’s founder and CEO, Carl Pei confirmed that the Nothing Phone (2) is coming later this year and will be positioned as a premium device. While he didn’t reveal the exact details or specifications of the Phone (2), expect the phone to come with a higher price tag than the Phone (1). To recall, the Nothing Phone (1) featured the Snapdragon 778+ chipset which makes us believe the successor could either come with Snapdragon 7 Gen or 8 Gen series processor. Besides that, an improved set of cameras with new sensors could also tag along.

Just a couple of days after the interview went live, a new report suggests that the Nothing Phone (2) will carry the model number “A065”. The report also reveals that the device will boast an AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, just like its predecessor. The chipset could be paired with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. Lastly, the handset may likely pack in a 5000mAh battery which is an improvement over the Phone (1)’s 4500mAh cell.

  • Expected price: around Rs 45,000 (unofficial)
  • Launch: H2 2023

Nothing Ear (2)

After launching the Nothing Ear (stick) earphones in India back in October 2022, the company quickly discontinued the Nothing Ear (1) from its official selling platform, Flipkart. Come 2023 and a fresh report from Smartprix in collaboration with OnLeaks suggests that Nothing Ear (2) could launch soon without giving a concise timeline. As per the report, the Ear (2)’s design may remain unchanged from Ear (1) except for a few minor tweaks and alterations. The earphones along with the case may follow the same transparent design language with the presence of red and white dots in certain places. Apart from that, Nothing may bring several new features to the TWS such as personalised ANC support and Transparency Mode. Furthermore, features like dual connectivity, an Advanced EQ setting, and Find Earbuds may also make the cut on the Nothing Ear (2).

  • Expected price: around Rs 8,000
  • Launch: Q2 2023

Just like the rest of the products in Nothing’s portfolio, the Nothing Ear (stick) could also get an upgrade later this year in the form of Ear (stick) 2. Expect the earphones to retain the same cylindrical body with a twist-to-open mechanism to access the earphones from the case. Besides that, just like Ear (2), Ear (stick) 2 may gain also gain a set of new features to enhance the music listening experience.

  • Expected price: around Rs 9,000
  • Launch: Q3 2023

Particles by XO

First look at unique new TWS earbuds from Particles by XO

In an exclusive report by 91mobiles, Nothing is working behind the scenes on a sub-brand called Particles by XO. The offshoot brand is said to prioritise the US market and could soon debut by launching an unconventionally designed TWS earphone. However, at this point in time, it is unclear whether the brand’s name is ‘Particles by XO’ or simply XO, while Particles is the name of the audio product. Coming to the design of the truly wireless earbuds, the leaked images reveal peanut-shaped earbuds with an L-shaped form factor while the charging case is completely circular in shape with no transparent aesthetics like previous Nothing products such as the Ear (1) or Phone (1).

The report also reveals that the earbuds are codenamed ‘B154’ and will include features like LHDC (Low Latency High-Definition Audio Codec) and ANC (Active Noise Cancellation).

  • Expected price: NA
  • Launch: Q2 2023
