Nothing Phone (2a) launch introduces a new mighty mid-ranger

The Nothing Phone (2a) launch has finally given us a look at Nothing’s latest device, and the Glyph is still a big part of the design.

We’ve just tuned into the Nothing Phone (2a) launch, with the breakaway mobile brand finally fully revealing its latest device to the world. While we already knew what to expect, thanks to some sneak peeks and leaks over the last few months, we were excited to get confirmation from the horse’s mouth.

The launch began with Nothing CEO Carl Pei addressing the audience live in Delhi, India. Pei shared some of the accolades Nothing has received over its three years of manufacturing smartphones while detailing the company’s strategy and design goals. With that out of the way, we got into what we’d all been waiting for: the Nothing Phone (2a) launch.

In terms of specs, the Nothing Phone (2a) is no slouch, with a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Pro chipset, 5,000 mAh battery, 50MP camera, 32MP selfie camera, and 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a peak brightness of 1,300 nits. That isn’t to mention the 45W fast charging, with Nothing promising a day’s power in just under 20 minutes of charging, which rivals big names like the best Samsung and OnePlus phones. When it comes to software, the Nothing Phone (2a) ships with Nothing OS 2.5, the brand’s latest Android 14 skin, without any annoying bloatware.

Still, the most exciting part of the Nothing Phone (2a) is the design, as you might expect from this brand. This latest mobile is a continuation of the brand’s design-centric ethos, with a Glyph interface visible through the transparent back casing. Like Nothing’s last two phones, it’s available in either Black or White, with a third slightly different Milk colorway exclusive to this device. It’s a bit of a different look to the Nothing Phone (2), with a central camera placement rather than in the top corner, but you can still easily tell it’s one from the brand.

Finally, onto pricing and availability, the Nothing Phone (2a) starts at $329/£329 for the 8GB+128GB version or £379 for the 12GB+256GB model. However, it’s important to point out that Nothing phones still aren’t readily available in the US, so you may have to look at importing if you want one. If you pick one up for yourself, you’re getting three years of Android updates and four years of security updates.

There you have it, all the key details from the Nothing Phone (2a) launch. For more on the latest smartphones, see our awards for the best of MWC 2024, or check out our guides to the best Google Pixel phones and the best Xiaomi phones.
