The Nothing Phone 2a is set to launch in India on March 5. The company recently confirmed its SoC details. Other key specifications like storage, camera, battery, as well as price, color options and design of the phone were mentioned several times. Now, the UK-based OEM has revealed the design of the upcoming smartphone. The model is seen in a single color with a new back panel design compared to the earlier Phone 2 and Phone 1. It is expected to be launched as an upgrade to the Nothing Phone 1, while remaining cheaper than the Phone 2, with toned down specifications of the latest flagship.

In a video shared on an X post by Nothing, the Nothing Phone 2a is shown in a white color option. Like the company’s other phones, the upcoming model also has a transparent back panel design. The phone’s dual rear camera is placed horizontally in a pill-shaped camera module at the top center.

Surrounding the Nothing Phone 2a’s camera module are the LED modules that are part of Nothing’s signature Glyph interface. Two of these units are located in circular arcs, and the other is placed vertically on the right side of the rear panel.

The company had earlier confirmed that the Nothing Phone 2a will be powered by a 5G-enabled MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Pro SoC, which is said to be paired with 12GB of RAM and an additional 8GB of virtual RAM. Nothing CEO Carl Pei also confirmed that the Phone 2a phones sold in India will be manufactured in the country.

Not that the Phone 2a isn’t offered to be released in black and white color options before then. Its price in India is expected to be Rs. 30,000. It is said to ship with Android 14-based NothingOS 2.5. The handset is also likely to get a 6.7-inch 120Hz full-HD+ OLED display, two 50-megapixel rear cameras and a 32-megapixel front camera. Previous leaks claimed that the phone could pack a 5,000mAh battery with support for 45W wired fast charging.

Will the Nothing Phone 2 serve as the successor to the Phone 1 or will the two co-exist?
