Nothing has finally released the Nothing Phone (2a), its first mid-range phone available worldwide, after considerable anticipation. Unsurprisingly, most of the leaks regarding it were accurate—aside from a couple that were centered around design and couldn’t pinpoint some minute elements. The phone has proven to be an intriguing purchase considering its unexpectedly cheap cost. Here is all the information you want on the Nothing Phone (2a) debut.

Nothing Phone (2a): Display and Design 

Let’s start with the back, which has drawn the most attention. Polycarbonate, or plastic, is the substance utilized for the transparent back design. Although the buttons are metal, the frame is also built from plastic. The phone is available in two colors: black and white. The rear plastic has a somewhat frosted surface and bends at the edges. The power button is on the right, and the volume controls are on the left, in a traditional Nothing manner.

The 6.7-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED screen has an adjustable refresh rate of 30–120 Hz and a maximum brightness of 1,300 nits. It is an HDR10+ certified 10-bit flat display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection.


Its 32-megapixel punch-hole camera is situated in the center. When you take into account the price, which we cover at the conclusion, the display has, all things considered, exceeded expectations on paper.

Process Performance

Leaks of hardware are frequently accurate, and the Phone (2a) leaks were no exception. The company first disputed them, but later acknowledged that the Dimensity 7200 Pro was being used. For Phone 2a), Nothing and MediaTek collaborated to create a unique Dimensity 7200 Pro chipset that offers increased power efficiency.

It is built on TSMC’s 2nd generation 4nm fabrication node and features an octa-core, 2+6 configuration CPU. Six Cortex-A510 efficiency cores clocked at 2.00 GHz and two Cortex-A715 performance cores clocked at 2.8 GHz are present in the CPU. The phone has a 12,000 square mm cryogenic frame made of graphite and a huge vapor chamber of 3,200 square mm. The GPU is a Mali G610 MC4.

The RAM and storage are two other areas where Nothing made significant cost reductions. Together with the older LPDDR4X RAM, the Phone (2a) has outdated UFS 2.2 storage.

Competitors with somewhat faster RAM and storage than Phone (2a) include the Realme 12 Pro and OnePlus Nord CE 3, which have LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.

Cameras: Nothing Phone (2a)

There are two cameras on the back. The popular Samsung ISOCELL GN9 50 MP 1/1.56′′ camera with optical image stabilization serves as the primary sensor. The 50 MP Samsung ISOCELL JN1 1/2.76 sensor, which is ultrawide and devoid of OIS, serves as the secondary camera. The Sony IMX 615 front camera has a 32 MP 1/2.74 sensor.

It’s a good thing there’s no gimmicky 2 MP macro camera; I’m sure the ultrawide would be more useful to users than the 2 MP macro. That said, if Nothing has good post-processing skills, the main camera ought to be able to get some respectable pictures.

Glyph User Interface

As three Glyph segments and twenty-six individually accessible zones, the Phone (2a) offers a plethora of functionalities, the majority of which are shared with the Phone (2). There are several useful Glyph features, including a timer, Essential Notifications, Glyph Composer, Glyph Torch, Glyph Progress, and Flip to Glyph. Without a doubt, it’s an improvement over the Phone (1).

Battery chargers

Having a 45W charging capacity, a robust 5,000 mAh battery powers the Dimensity 7200 Pro and Glyphs. However, it does not enable wireless charging, in contrast to the Phone (1) and Phone (2). Nothing makes the promise that a device can charge from 0% to 100% in one hour, but our thorough analysis will provide more details.

I anticipate that the Phone (2a) will survive two days with moderate use and slightly more over a day with intensive use when combined with the Dimensity 7200 Pro and Nothing’s optimizations on top of the Nothing OS.

Connectivity and Software

Nothing OS 2.5 (review), Nothing’s most recent software update based on Android 14, is included with Nothing Phone (2a). The business promises three major Android upgrades, which is great for a mid-range handset supplied at a competitive price, much like Nothing’s previous phones. It’s impressive that the OS has ZERO bloat.

In terms of connection, you get USB Type-C, which is still USB 2.0, NFC, Dual Nano SIM card slots, Bluetooth 5.3, and Wi-Fi 6. It’s wonderful that Nothing has retained NFC, since this should make tap-to-pay effortless for users.

Nothing Phone (2a) Price

In India, the basic 8GB+128GB version of the Nothing Phone (2a) costs Rs 23,999. But for a single day only—March 12—the deals would effectively lower the price to Rs 19,999.

Regarding the other storage options, the 8GB+256GB version will set you back Rs 25,999, while the 12GB+256GB version will set you back Rs 27,999.
