Nothing Phone 2 release date: Everything you need to know
Nothing’s first phone, named simply the Nothing Phone 1, was a surprise success. The phone launched with fair criticism on its pricing, but subsequent discounts made it a better deal. Over time, the company also fixed many issues with the software, improving the camera and making the phone a much better product a few months after launch. Now we’re in a new cycle with the Nothing Phone 2. When did the Nothing Phone 2 release? We bring you all the details on its release date and sale.
The Nothing Phone 2 launched on July 11, 2023, at 11:00 AM ET. Pre-orders for the phone opened the same day. General availability began on July 17, 2023. The phone is available to buy in the United States, Canada, the UK and other European regions, India, Australia, and a few other areas.

When is the Nothing Phone 2 coming out?
The Nothing Phone 1 was launched on July 12, 2022, with the first sale starting a few days later. The Nothing Phone 2 launched almost exactly a year later, on July 11, 2023. The livestream of the launch began at 11:00 AM ET.
At launch, the price of the Nothing Phone 2 started at $599 for the model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. If you need more room to expand, the 12/256GB model will set you back $699. For folks with deeper pockets, you can get the top-of-the-line variant with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage for $799.
Will the Nothing Phone 2 be available in the US?
The Nothing Phone 1 did not launch in the US, but that has changed with the Nothing Phone 2. Nothing confirmed in May that the Nothing Phone 2 will definitely launch in the United States.
As the company was very young when the Phone 1 launched, it did not have the necessary resources to pursue the carrier certification processes needed to launch a phone in the US. With the success of the Phone 1 and true wireless earbuds like the Ear 1 and the Ear Stick 1, the company had enough resources and was in a better position to enter the US market.
Nothing hasn’t announced any US carrier partnerships, so you’ll need to buy the phone unlocked from Nothing or a third-party retailer (such as Amazon) and then connect it to your existing account. However, these units will have wide-reaching band support on Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile with sub-6GHz 5G access once connected.
Will the Nothing Phone 2 be available at launch?
Yes, the Nothing Phone 2 is now available to order directly from Nothing’s website for regions worldwide. General availability began back on July 17, 2023.
Will Nothing be announcing any other products at the Phone 2 launch?
We did not expect Nothing to launch more than one product at a time during its early years. For Nothing Phone 1, the launch event was focused entirely on the phone. The company did not announce any new products other than the phone. And it was the same thing with the Phone 2 launch.
Nothing recently released their Nothing Ear 2 earbuds, but they are not included with the phone, and there is no discount on them for buying the phone.
