After the much hyped launch of its first phone, the Phone (1), It is assumed that nothing is already working on the second device. According to various sources in the tech industry, it will be very similar to the phone (1) and is even seen as a “Lite” version of that device.
Although this device comes with the same screen, processor and cameras as the Phone (1), there will be two main differences: it has a plain glass back (no LEDs, no Glyph interface) and does not support wireless charging. However, it will have a 42W charger in the box, although it will only support 33W charging as well. However, when The Mobile Indian contacted Nothing, they denied the existence of such a device.
Nothing Lite Phone (1) specs and price (source based)
The second Nothing phone is expected to be a more budget-friendly option than the Phone (1) which starts at Rs 32,999. While none of our sources were sure about RAM and storage variants, there are some indications that the phone will start at Rs 24,999 for a 6GB/128GB variant. Interestingly, a few sources have even said that the new phone will come with a slightly larger 5000mAh battery.
The rest of the specs should be largely in line with what we’ve seen in the Nothing Phone (1) – a 6.55-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ processor, dual 50-megapixel rear cameras and a 16-megapixel front camera. The phone will of course run on Nothing’s very minimal Nothing OS interface and will come with Android 12 pre-installed, and will also come with IP53 splash protection.
According to what our sources tell us, Nothing’s second phone is a more pocket-friendly option than the first device, and will allow the brand to capitalize on the phone’s hype (1). The phone (1) has been in high demand since it launched a few weeks ago, and a cheaper device with largely similar specs would certainly attract a significant number of users. In fact, if our sources prove correct, the second Nothing phone would be excellent value for money, although it would lack that unbelievably great back with 900 LEDs and wireless charging.
Nothing Lite Phone (1) Availability (source based)
The second Nothing phone is expected to be announced during the Indian holiday season and is also expected to be sold on Flipkart. There is even a rumor that the price of the Nothing Phone (1) will also drop below Rs 30,000 at the time as part of a ‘special offer’.
However, we would like to emphasize that this information is essentially based on information shared by our sources at the time of writing, with no official confirmation from Nothing. We have not contacted anything in this regard and the brand has denied that a device of this nature is in the works or even planned. However, it would be very interesting if there was something in this Nothing rumor. We would all love a sub Rs 25,000 phone with the clean UI and unified edge design of Nothing!
