The wait for the Nothing Phone 2a is over; everything you need to know


The Nothing Phone 2a is gearing up for its official launch in India on March 5. The London-based consumer technology brand, known for its unique approach, will unveil the highly anticipated mid-range smartphone at a global launch event in New Delhi.

Adding to the anticipation, Carl Pei, the CEO, will personally unveil the handset, reflecting the dedication invested in crafting the company’s first mid-range device over three years.

The Nothing Phone 2a will reportedly disrupt the mid-range smartphone market with its aggressive pricing, sending ripples of competition anxiety among major players like iQOO, Vivo, Oppo, and the OnePlus team. The excitement surrounding this launch is palpable, and there are compelling reasons to look forward to it.

Nothing Phone 2a Key Specifications and Features

The standout feature is the camera module on the customized polycarbonate rear panel, resembling dual camera eyes that seem to peer into the user’s tech-savvy soul. Complementing the transparent glass back are iPhone-inspired flat edges and a matte texture on the sides. The handset is expected to feature a flat display, likely protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass, with a generous 6.7-inch size and a 120Hz refresh rate.

Staying true to Nothing’s style, the Phone 2a will be available in classic black and white variants. I wonder when will Nothing start experimenting with other color shades, for instance, that transparent back will look pretty cool with pastel shades.

Nothing Phone 2a Hardware and Performance

As for the underlying hardware, the Phone (2a) will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Pro chipset, as confirmed by Nothing CEO Carl Pei. The SoC will be supported by up to 12 GB of RAM and a capable GPU to handle memory and graphics requirements. The handset will be fuelled by a big 5,000 mAh battery cell.

Moving on, the Nothing Phone 2a will reportedly feature a 50MP dual-lens rear camera setup and a 32MP front camera for selfies and video calling.

The Nothing Phone 2a will run on Nothing OS 2.5, based on Android 14. We can’t wait to see how the Nothing UI will perform on the company’s first-ever mid-range handset. Will it be buggier or stable enough to run everything without any hiccups? Let’s wait for the launch to find this out. But I must tell you, it will be better than the cringe iQOO and Vivo devices for sure.

The most important bit- the pricing. The Nothing Phone 2a is expected to cost under Rs. 30,000 and will be available on Flipkart. The CEO himself hinted that the new smartphone will be priced lower than the Phone 1, which was launched at Rs. 32,999. Notably, the Nothing Phone 2 is currently listed at Rs. 36,000 for the base variant.
