Nothing, the Carl Pei-led UK startup is all set to unveil the Nothing Phone 2A in India soon. Ahead of the official release, a leaked render of the handset has surfaced online suggesting some key design details. The Nothing Phone 2A may have a new back panel that may not include the glyph interface. Nothing's Phone 1 and Phone 2 smartphones feature a customizable glyph interface on the back. This LED-filled array can light up during calls and notifications.
The alleged renders of the Nothing Phone 2A were shared by tipster Steve H. McFeely (@onleaks) in collaboration with SmartPrix. The render shows the handset from the back and shows a new rear panel in a white finish and there is no visible glyph interface, nothing but a customizable LED array. This will be the first smartphone from the brand to remove the glyph interface. However, it appears to have a transparent rear panel.
Additionally, the Nothing Phone 2A appears to have a different camera layout compared to the Phone 1 and Phone 2. Two camera lenses are seen arranged vertically in the upper-left corner. No branding and regulatory markings are placed on the bottom row.
The lack of glyph interface and camera arrangement can differentiate Phone 2a from Nothing Phone 1 and Phone 2.
The Nothing Phone 2A is expected to go official during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 later this month. The handset is codenamed Aerodactyl and may launch as a mid-ranger. It will be sold in India via Flipkart and is confirmed to leverage some features from last year's Nothing Phone 2. The phone is said to offer an upgraded experience compared to the Nothing Phone 1.
Over the past few weeks, we've highlighted most of the key features that come with the Nothing Phone 2A. It is likely to feature Android 13, a 6.7-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 SoC under the hood. The rear camera setup is said to include a 50-megapixel Samsung GN9 sensor and a 50-megapixel JN1 camera. A 32-megapixel Sony IMX615 front camera can be found in it. It is being said that it will be available in black and white shades.
