Nothing Phone (2) visits Indian BIS ahead of launch

Nothing Phone (2) BIS

As seen in the BIS certification image above, the Nothing Phone (2) (with the model number Nothing AIN065) has recently been certified by the Indian BIS certification. Though the BIS certification listing does not tell us anything about the specifications and features of the device, it sure suggests that the launch of the device is imminent. This is the first time that the model number has popped up on any certification website, and even though the listing does not explicitly map the model number with the Nothing Phone (2) moniker, given the brand’s past trends, we can certainly not expect it to be any other smartphone, and it will, in all likelihood, be the Nothing Phone (2).

Nothing Phone (2) specifications (expected)

The Nothing Phone (2) is expected to feature a 120Hz refresh rate AMOLED display with a FHD+ resolution. Under the hood, the Nothing Phone (2) is expected to come powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, which could be coupled with up to 12GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. Coming to the battery of the device, the Nothing Phone (2) is tipped to feature a 5,000mAh battery with support for 67W fast charging and wireless fast charging as well. In terms of software, the Nothing Phone (2) is more than likely to boot the latest Android 13-based Nothing OS out of the box. Lastly, the device could feature a 50MP main camera with support for OIS.
