The smartphone has a maximum brightness of 1000 Nitss, which can be increased to 1600 Nitss by using the Peak brightness Mode. the display is good in quality and justified this price range but it is only an FHD+ display, not a QHD display.

This HDR10+ Display includes an SGS Blue Light eye care feature for the comfort and protection of its users. This display also has a 10-bit color depth, which is impressive and unusual.

The smartphone has an Adreno 730G Graphic Processing Unit, which allows it to support high-end gaming in an ultrasmooth and unnecessary manner.
Ram and Storage
The Nothing Phone 2 has 12 GB of RAM. However, the smartphone is also available with an 8GB RAM variant, but we recommend that you go for the 12 GB variant because it has more ROM.
The Nothing Phone 2 supports 256GB of storage. It also has a 512 GB ROM option, which is sufficient for multitaskers. If you are not a heavy user of your smartphone’s functions, the 256GB variant is a good choice; otherwise, the 512GB variant is a better choice.
