The Nothing Phone (2a) Is Launching on March 5 as the Company’s First Proper Midranger!

Wow they actually came up with a new design for once. Wonder if this will be used for the 3a too?

When it comes to naming midrange phones, it looks like Nothing was inspired by the Google Pixel series, as in the sub “A-series” (with a lowercase “a”) is the midrange one while the flagship ones usually just have a number. Oh, the parenthesis part of the name, as per Nothing tradition, is still part of the scheme.

There were some official-looking renders popping up online and usually, these leaks are accurate to how the phone would actually look once launched. Yes, Nothing is still keeping the signature glyph design and transparent back but the camera array has an entirely new look. Now, the phone is less “iPhone-ish” and more in-line with recent Android phones featuring a large circular camera island at the middle which then houses the actual cameras. These two cameras are essentially the same as the Nothing Phone (2) but flipped to the side.

There are no confirmed specs yet but the phone is expected to launch with a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 chipset. The first phone in Nothing’s lineup to use a MediaTek chip. It will also feature a 6.7″ OLED display, a 50MP Primary camera, a 32MP selfie snapper, and a 5000mAh battery.

If you can recall, the Nothing Phone (1), while a “flagship” phone, its specs scream “midrange” especially when you look at its Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset. The Nothing Phone (2a) is a mixture of what makes the Nothing Phone (1) and (2) so good. That’s not all, Nothing also released a Glyph Development Kit so now third-party developers can tinker and play around with the glyph design, which makes for a whole new personalized experience.

If it offers a lot of things from the (2) at a lower price point, then the (2a) can be potentially the best midrange phone released this quarter, competing against the Google Pixel 7a.
