Qualcomm exec confirms Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset for Nothing Phone (2)

Nothing chose MWC Barcelona as a starting point for its Phone (2) teaser campaign but a new post by a Qualcomm executive on LinkedIn (of all places) delivered a major leak regarding the phone’s chipset. Alex Katouzian who serves as Qualcomm SVP and GM of the Mobile, Compute, and XR units issued a post on the professional networking platform to congratulate Nothing on the upcoming Phone (2) launch and explicitly named the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset powering the device.

The original post has since been edited to exclude the exact chipset and instead specifies Nothing Phone (2) will be powered by a Snapdragon 8 series SoC. Following the well-received Nothing Phone (1) midranger, Nothing’s second smartphone is expected to contend in the premium/flagship killer segment. Carl Pei also confirmed Phone (2) is coming to the US later this year.

Say that to their Gallery and Messages app. I just want to use Google Photos and Google Messages, not their own app.
