Challenger handset brand Nothing revealed it will unveil its second smartphone on 11 July, with plans to place a bigger emphasis on the US market compared with its predecessor.

Dubbed the Nothing Phone 2, the company stated the device will be equipped with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, a 6.67-inch AMOLED and 4700 mAh battery.

With regards to design, it appears the phone will look similar to Nothing Phone 1, but with rounded sides instead of a square shape.

Other specs are unknown at this stage, but indications point to a major US push this time round, after the first device from the company only launched in the market on a limited basis in January, more than six months after it was available in other markets.

At the start of the year, Nothing CEO Carl Pei (pictured) told lifestyle magazine Inverse it was aiming for Nothing 2 to be a more premium handset and primarily target it at the US.

He also claimed the company had shifted more than 1 million products, including its first smartphone and headphones, which launched in 2021.
