On-device generative AI could be a major feature in the upcoming release of Nothing Phone 3.

Snapping up Snapdragon

The rumored Nothing Phone 3 could switch back to Qualcomm chips and use a Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 to help power onboard generative AI features, according to 91mobiles’ “industry sources who work closely with Nothing.” This aligns with the idea that the Phone 3 will offer near-flagship performance while maintaining Nothing’s reputation for making affordable phones. The Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chip is designed for affordable flagship phones and integrates advanced AI features such as on-device generative AI and intelligent photography tools, which can fill in missing details from photos. It offers slightly less power than the premium Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, positioning the Phone 3 closer to top-tier, mid-range phones like the OnePlus 12R and Samsung Galaxy A55.

If the rumor is true, Nothing won’t be the only one taking advantage of the new Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chip as Honor and Xiaomi will also be using it in some upcoming phones that are yet to be announced. The addition of this chip in the Nothing Phone 3 would provide a significant boost in performance compared to its predecessors. With a Cortex-X4 core clocked at 3GHz, three performance cores reaching up to 2.8GHz, and four efficiency cores at 2GHz, the Phone 3 would see an improvement in performance over Phone 2 and Phone 2a.

The Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chip could also offer improved battery life for the Nothing Phone 3, depending on the battery size, due to the more efficient 4-nanometer technology from TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co). The insiders claim that the phone will be released around July and will cost around 40,000 Rupees, which is approximately £380 / $479 / AU$737. This pricing strategy may have implications for the market positioning of the Phone 3 compared to other models.

While the upcoming release of Nothing Phone 3 offers exciting prospects with the potential integration of on-device generative AI, the use of the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chip underscores Nothing’s commitment to delivering high-performance devices at an affordable price point. With the speculated enhancements in AI capabilities and photography, the Phone 3 could prove to be a strong contender in the mid-range smartphone market, competing with established brands like OnePlus, Samsung, and Motorola.
