Nothing officially announced the launch date for the highly anticipated Nothing Phone 2 a few weeks ago. The launch is set for July 11th.

However, leaks have been surfacing, including one revealing the European pricing for the smartphone, which, compared to last year’s model, appears quite absurd.

Is Nothing Phone 2 going to be a flagship or a flagship killer? 

A French outlet Dealabs has claimed to have received the pricing for the Nothing Phone 2, which will also come in two variants, 256GB and 512GB, in terms of storage. 

The 256GB is the base model, and apparently, it will be priced at €729, equivalent to $802 USD. If you need more storage, the 512GB variant will cost €849, around $934 USD. Both variants will be available in the usual Black and White colorways.

We are not sure how accurate this leaked Nothing Phone 2 pricing is; however, if we consider it accurate, the upcoming Android smartphone is opting for a major price hike. 

Last year’s Nothing Phone 1 started at €469, around $516 USD. It will be even more expensive than the base model Google Pixel 7, which costs €649 and is only $20 cheaper than its 256GB variant. 

The Nothing Phone 2 price hike was expected, as the upcoming smartphone is getting some major upgrades.

The upcoming Nothing Phone includes the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset and a slightly larger 4,700 mAh battery, but these two upgrades don’t justify the unnecessarily hefty price tag. 

However, Nothing founder Carl Pei reacted to this price leak. He has tweeted, “Who leaked this? With an angry emoji.”

So, it is not clear whether Carl is irritated because the news is accurate or he is just joking. Nevertheless, with only a few days left for the Nothing Phone 2 launch, we’ll know all the details on 11th July.
