Hours after teasing the cable, the founder revealed the design of its upcoming cable via Twitter. It seems that the transparent charging cable would be limited to Nothing Phone (2) as of now. Here’s everything you need to know about Nothing Phone (2) transparent Type-C charging cable.

Nothing Phone (2) Gets a Transparent Type-C Cable

Nothing is all set to launch its second smartphone on July 11 in India and in other global markets. The phone will have the same transparent design as its predecessor, Phone (2).

However, we expect that there could be some improvements in the glyph interface and LED lightning. The transparent design of the Phone (1) helped the company to stand out among the ocean of smartphone companies in the mid-budget range.

The company has announced that it will now release a special-looking cable for its upcoming device. Carl Pei earlier today teased the cable by tweeting,

“Man our new USB Type-C cable is *nice*”

Four hours later, the founder revealed the first look of the Nothing Phone (2) transparent Type-C cable. As per the image shared by Carl, both the end ports would have transparent lids instead of the plastic coating that we get to see on the regular cables. Inside the ports, we can see the Nothing logo.

Do note that the rest of the part i.e. wire would be covered by different materials, polycarbonate most likely. The rest of the details are wrapped. As of now, it would be hard to say if the cables would be sold separately or not.
