Like last year's Nothing Phone 1, the most distinctive detail on the Nothing Phone 2 is the transparent back.

It features IP54 splash-resistance and wireless charging. In terms of cameras, you'll find a 50MP primary lens, and a 50MP ultra-wide that can also be used for macro photography.
It ships with Android 13, featuring a Nothing-designed skin called Nothing OS 2.0.
