Nothing Phone 2a – Good / Flop ?

by Atharva Gulhane

On Tuesday, March 5, the third smartphone from Nothing, the Nothing Phone 2a, was launched in India. The newest smartphone from the UK-based firm has an AMOLED display with an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz and is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Pro SoC. It boasts an IP54-rated construction and two 50-megapixel cameras on the back. So let’s dive deeper.

The Phone 2a is perceived as an attempt by Nothing to compete with companies like Realme and Xiaomi, who have historically dominated the mid-range price market.

Nothing Phone 2a Design

One distinctive and essential feature of Nothing Phone was the glyph interface, which let users design custom glyph patterns linked to particular callers. In line with the brand’s dedication to visual diversity, the phone 2a will come in two timeless colors: black and white. A flat display and flat edges compliment the transparent design, which adheres to Nothing’s signature style. A matte finish adds even more refinement.

Nothing Phone 2a Specifications

Nothing OS 2.5, which is based on Android 14, powers the dual-SIM (nano) Nothing Phone 2a. Three years of Android upgrades and four years of security patches are guaranteed. It has a 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,412 pixels) AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, a refresh rate that can be adjusted from 30 to 120 Hz, and a pixel density of 394 ppi. The screen supports HDR10+ and boasts a peak brightness of 1,300 nits, a 240Hz touch sampling rate, and a 2160Hz PWM frequency. The smartphone’s internal components include an octa-core 4nm MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Pro SoC and up to 12GB of RAM.

The Nothing Phone 2a has two 50-megapixel sensors in its dual camera system. With an f/1.88 aperture lens and a 1/1.56-inch size, the primary 50-megapixel sensor supports both optical and electronic image stabilization. The secondary 50-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor contains a 114-degree field of view and an f/2.2 aperture. The smartphone features a 32-megapixel f/2.2 aperture selfie camera on the front.

The Nothing Phone 2a has an internal storage capacity of up to 256GB. 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6 Direct, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, QZSS, 360-degree antenna, and USB Type-C connector are among the smartphone’s connectivity choices. There are several sensors on board, such as a proximity sensor, accelerometer, electronic compass, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, and in-display fingerprint sensor. It has two stereo speakers and high-definition microphones. It is water and dust-resistant, with an IP54 rating, and it features the face unlock feature for authentication.

Nothing compares to the Phone 2a’s 5,000mAh battery and 45W rapid charging capability. Compared to the 4,500mAh battery unit in Phone 1 and the 4,700mAh battery unit in Phone 2, this represents a major boost. It is stated that the battery unit may run continuously for up to two days on a single charge. It is claimed that the battery can be fully charged using fast charging technology in just 23 minutes to reach 50% and 100% in 59 minutes. It weighs 190 grams and is 161.74 x 76.32 x 8.55 mm in size.

Similar to its predecessors, the Nothing Phone 2a boasts a Glyph Interface that lets users customize the phone’s back lighting effects. Ten new ringtones and notification sounds, along with fifteen functionalities and a new trio light arrangement are all included in the LED interface. Users can now designate distinct patterns as ringtones for specific contacts or apps with this update. Setting lights for specific critical contacts or apps will be made easier with the help of the Essential Glyph Notifications feature. The Glyph Interface can also be used to adjust loudness or countdown the shutter on a camera.

In my opinion, if Nothing can deliver the design with the build quality of premium phones, the cost will be well justified for the specs and compromises, and yess trying towards making the Glyph more interactive in some way.
