Alleged Nothing Phone 2a leak hints at a mid-range phone



Nothing may have a new mid-range Android smartphone in the works. It apparently won’t be a direct sequel to the Phone (2) that debuted in July this year. Instead, the company is preparing to introduce an entirely new lineup of mid-range phones. The first model in the series will be allegedly called the Nothing Phone 2a. There’s no launch date available yet.

Nothing Phone 2a to kick-off a new mid-range lineup

Founded by former OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, Nothing made headlines with its first smartphone last year. Named Phone (1), the handset stood out because of its transparent back that showed its internal structure. While it was just another mid-range Android phone, the unique design helped Nothing quickly carve out a chunk of the market. The firm followed up with a more premium Phone (2) earlier this year while keeping the core design unchanged.

We were expecting Nothing to launch the Phone (3) around July next year. However, the company seems to have other plans. While the third-gen model may be in the pipeline, another Nothing phone could be on the way too. X user @saaaanjjjuuu claims that they have obtained information confirming the existence of the Nothing Phone 2a. It has the model number AIN142 and features a similar design as the previous two models.

A blurry image posted on X shows an identical dual rear camera system, transparent back, and glyph interface. The phone reportedly features a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with a centered punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. No other information was shared but the source explicitly states that it isn’t the Nothing Phone (3). By the looks of it, the phone may be a watered-down version of the Phone (2) or the Phone (1) with a newer and better processor.

Nothing Phone 2a leak

It could feature a 7-series Qualcomm processor

Speaking of the processor, the alleged Nothing Phone 2a may feature Qualcomm’s 7-series chipset, possibly the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3. Or maybe Nothing will opt for the previous-gen the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2. The firm’s plan might be to run two different phone lineups simultaneously—an “a” series of mid-range products with 7-series Snapdragon chips and a flagship series with 8-series Snapdragon chips.

Google has enjoyed success with a similar strategy and Nothing might be looking to copy that. However, no noted leakster has backed this rumor yet, so we advise you to take this news with some caution. If the Nothing Phone 2a is on the way as a new mid-range offering from the company, we should soon come across more leaks about it, revealing additional information. Stay tuned to find out.
