Nothing’s Transparent Phone (2a) Specs and Price Leaked

While Nothing is a fairly new brand in the smartphone world, it has already established its name via its unique device designs, such as transparent smartphones and headphones. A fresh leak has surfaced suggesting the UK startup may be working on a cheaper version of the Nothing Phone (2), dubbed the Phone (2a).

This information hails from X user Sanju Choudhary who has a fairly recent track record, making it difficult to tell if there is any authenticity to the leak. Based on the details he shared, Nothing is working on a new smartphone which carries the code name ‘AIN142’. The device is believed to be the upcoming Nothing Phone (2a), a mid-range version of the current Phone (2) that we reviewed.

Nothing Phone (2a) boasts mid-range specifications

Based on the included key specifications, the Phone (2a) features a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with a centered punch hole for the 16 MP selfie camera. The screen size and layout of the front camera are similar to the Phone (2), deviating from the Phone (1). A blurry and low-resolution image of the front side was published side-by-side, but there is hardly anything obvious that can be drawn aside from the modest bezel size.

In addition to the front section, the rear shooters are said to be a dual camera module with a 50 MP primary camera and possibly an ultra-wide snapper. The back also houses the iconic Glyph lighting interface, but there is no way to confirm whether the layout of the LED strips is similar to the Phone (2).

Meanwhile, the Phone (2a) is said to boot on Android 14 with the Nothing OS 2.5 skin on top. The battery capacity features a 4,920 mAh cell is, which could be advertised at 5,000 mAh.

Unfortunately, it remains unclear what are the remaining specifications and features, including the chipset of choice to power the Phone (2a). Knowing Nothing, it may utilize a mid-range SoC from Qualcomm, which might mean the newer Snapdragon 7 Gen 3. If we are lucky, Nothing may even retain the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 from the pricier Phone (2).

Furthermore, there were no clues on the price of the Nothing Phone (2a), but the available hardware details indicate the device might cost around $400, going all the way to $500, depending on the memory configuration. As a reference, the base model of Nothing Phone (2) with an 8/128 GB memory configuration costs $599 a pop. Lastly, the launch of the Nothing Phone (2a) still remains a mystery.

Do you think there is still room for a more affordable Nothing Phone? Would you consider buying one? We look forward to your comments.
