Samsung, Vivo, Oppo, Xiaomi are the top smartphone brands in India during the first quarter of 2023, according to IDC research report.

Nothing did not reveal its investment plans for India. Recently, Apple announced its plans for India.

“Nothing smartphones are known for their iconic transparent design. These designs require hi-tech manufacturing processes and precision engineering which have led to the enhancement of smartphone manufacturing capabilities in India,” Manu Sharma, VP and GM of Nothing India, said in a statement.

“Our drive to manufacture in India reflects our commitment towards the local consumers and their demands.”

Nothing recently announced that Phone (2) will boast an SGS_SA (a Swiss multinational firm which provides inspection, verification, testing and certification services), a certified carbon footprint of 53.45 kg, over 5 kg lower than Phone (1).

The company said this significant achievement given the overall boost in performance, including a 200 mAh increase in battery and a screen that is 0.15-inch bigger than the Phone (1).

Last month, Nothing’s Founder Carl Pei said Phone (2) will be powered by Snapdragon 8 Series chipset from Qualcomm.

Pei in a tweet said its initial tests show that app opening speed on Phone (2) is twice as fast compared to Phone (1), with an 80 percent overall performance improvement.

Nothing aims to release the Phone (2) this British summer.
