Nothing has officially launched the Phone (2a), its most budget-friendly smartphone to date, without compromising the distinctive design the brand is known for.

The Phone (2a) retains the signature transparent back panel but introduces a horizontal camera array, distinguishing it from its predecessors' vertical configurations. Despite being the most affordable in the lineup, it offers an intriguing blend of features, including customizable light-up Glyphs.

It's equipped with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a peak brightness of 1,300 nits. Photography enthusiasts will appreciate the 50-megapixel primary camera, complemented by a 50-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 32-megapixel selfie camera.

Nothing Unveils Its Phone (2) with a New Glyph Interface
One of the noticeable changes is the slightly pillowed and contoured glass back panel, which enhances the phone’s ergonomics. The signature Glyph interface has also undergone enhancements, featuring more segmented LED light strips.

Under the hood, the Phone (2a) is powered by the Mediatek Dimensity 7200 Pro chip, a departure from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 used in higher-end models. This choice reflects Nothing's commitment to balancing performance with cost. Despite its budget-friendly price, the Phone (2a) does not skimp on features. It comes with an IP54 rating, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, and stereo speakers.

Priced at $329 for the 8GB/128GB model and $379 for the 12GB/256GB variant, the Phone (2a) hit the market on March 12.
