Nothing Phone (2a) is Coming Soon: Expected Specifications, Price, and Availability

Highlights
  • Nothing is expected to unveil its latest mid-range offering, the Phone (2a), at the upcoming MWC 2024, which is set to take place in late February.
  • The smartphone is expected to cost around Rs 33,000 to Rs 35,000 and will be available on Flipkart.
  • It is said to be the first smartphone from Nothing to feature MediaTek chipset – Dimensity 7200 SoC.

It’s been almost seven months since ‘Nothing‘, the brainchild of Carl Pei, dropped its second smartphone. Now, brace yourselves because they’re about to unleash the Phone (2a) – the third member of their smartphone squad. In a world flooded with lookalike glass slabs, Nothing’s got that killer unique design.

While the company, so far, has kept most details under wraps, the online rumour mill has been buzzing about what to expect from Nothing’s upcoming Phone (2a). Here’s a look at everything we know so far.

Nothing Phone (2a) Expected Price and Availability in India

The upcoming Phone (2a) is poised to serve as a more budget-friendly option compared to its flagship counterpart, the Phone (2). Consequently, it is expected to boast a more modest price tag than its premium sibling. If speculation holds true, the forthcoming Phone (2a) is estimated to be priced at around Rs 35,000.

Nevertheless, we are inclined to believe that Nothing will keep the Phone (2a) comfortably below the Rs 35,000 threshold, with the base variant starting around Rs 32,000. The smartphone will most likely arrive at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024, which is scheduled to take place in late February. In India, it will be available on Flipkart as the microsite is already live.

Recently, Nothing accidentally shared pictures of the Phone (2a) on its Reddit page. Even though the images were taken down, they got spread across social media.

The pictures of the supposed Phone (2a) don’t show its design clearly because it’s in a protective case. On the front, you can see the phone has a display with a hole in the middle.

The back of the phone might have a new Glyph design, but we can’t see it because of the case. The rear does imply the presence of a horizontally arranged dual-camera system and an LED flash.
