True. Life.

Explore our TrueLens Engine: advanced computational photography algorithms that bring to life intricate details in each and every shot.

Co-developed with Google. For deeper, more accurate contrasts between highlight and shadows, your camera captures 8 frames at different exposure levels in RAW format for maximum details. It then adjusts the brightness of each pixel up to 5 times to display the most true-to-life result.

All the details at any hour. Amplifies low-light environments by grouping together multiple pixels, forming bigger ones while using OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) to increase exposure time without shake. All together, boosts light intake to reduce noise and reveal more details.

Makes action shots a walk in the park. Dynamically adjusts the shutter speed when detecting moving subjects and captures multiple frames, combining them into one for the clearest, blur-free shot.

Get the golden group picture. The AI algorithm detects faces in frame and ups the resolution even if a subject
is far away. Preserves skin-tone under any light.

DISCLAIMER

1. Charging speed and performance comparison: Charging speeds and performance are benchmarked against Nothing Phone (1) as per Nothing testing laboratory results.

2. Appearance disclaimer: The smartphone's appearance showcased on the page is for reference purposes only. Colours and finishes may slightly vary in different environments.

3. Illustrative feature images: Creative feature images displayed on the page are purely illustrative and do not represent the actual device structure; they are intended for demonstration purposes.

4. Water and dust resistance certification: The device is certified IP54 for resistance to splash, water, and dust under specific laboratory conditions. However, this water resistance is applicable only in controlled environments and may not correspond to typical consumer use. Ingress protection is not guaranteed outside test conditions. Testing by users is not recommended, and the product is not advised for beach or pool use. Ingress protection may degrade due to daily wear, physical damage, or disassembly required for repair. Charging, operating physical buttons, or removing the sim tray in moist conditions is discouraged. Liquid damage in environments beyond IP54 conditions is not covered by the warranty.

5. Caution on testing water resistance: Users are strongly advised against testing water resistance independently, and the product is not suitable for beach or pool use. Ingress protection may degrade due to daily wear, physical damage, or disassembly needed for repair.

6. Antutu benchmark data clarification: Antutu benchmark data originates from the nothing testing laboratory, based on actual conditions using Antutu V10. Slight differences may arise due to specific testing environments and software versions.

7. Memory and storage variation clarification: Actual available memory and storage capacity may vary or be reduced due to factors such as the operating system occupying part of the memory (RAM) and pre-installed programs using part of the flash memory (ROM).

8. RAM and ROM relationship clarification: The 20GB RAM specification is based on the 12GB RAM version. Creating additional RAM will utilise a selected amount of ROM storage on the device. Memory extension is possible when sufficient storage space is available, and the extension capacity varies across different models.

9. Charging and battery data source: All data regarding charging and battery life on this page are sourced from Nothing testing laboratories. Actual results may vary due to differences in software versions, environments, and phone models and may not exactly reflect the performance of the actual product.

10. 5G and NFC variation notice: 5G functionality requires support from local telecom operator services and may not be available in all regions. NFC functions may vary in some markets.

11. Charge time varies with device settings and environmental factors. Actual results will vary.
