Title: “Speculations Surrounding Nothing Phone 3: Potential Switch To Snapdragon 8S Gen 3 Chip And Enhanced Performance”

The speculated Nothing Phone 3 might make a switch back to Qualcomm chips, particularly utilizing a Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 for powering onboard generative AI features, according to industry sources associated with Nothing. This potential shift indicates a move towards a more robust performance compared to the recently unveiled Nothing Phone 2a, staying true to Nothing’s ethos of offering high performance at affordable prices. Traditionally, previous iterations like the Nothing Phone 1 and Phone 2 employed slightly outdated hardware, leading to speculation that Phone 3 could follow suit.

Snapdragon enthusiasts would be keen on the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chip unveiled in March, tailored for affordable flagship phones. Housing advanced AI capabilities including on-device generative AI and intelligent photography tools that enhance image quality by filling in missing details, this chip is somewhat less potent than its premium counterpart, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 found in leading Android phones this year. The introduction of this chip would position the Nothing Phone 3 closer to top-tier mid-range models such as the OnePlus 12R, Samsung Galaxy A55, and Motorola Edge 40. Additionally, it could potentially boost battery efficiency due to its utilization of TSMC’s efficient 4-nanometer technology.

If reports hold true, the incorporation of the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chip would mark a significant leap in performance when contrasted with both Phone 2 and Phone 2a. Boasting impressive specifications like a Cortex-X4 core clocked at 3GHz alongside three performance cores reaching up to speeds of 2.8GHz and four efficiency cores operating at 2GHz, this chipset sits between the capabilities of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Gen 3.

Notably, other prominent tech brands like Honor and Xiaomi are also anticipated to leverage the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chip in their upcoming releases. Sources suggest that Nothing might drop the Phone 3 around July at an estimated price point of approximately ₹40,000 or equivalent to £380 / $479 / AU$737. However, this pricing strategy seems unlikely as it nearly matches the cost of Nothing Phone

Continuing with these developments is Nothing’s cryptic teaser featuring a frog leaping over a Beatle hinting at “a big leap,” setting off speculations about a potential new phone or perhaps another audio-oriented product akin to their Ear series.
