Rumors have been floating online for the past few months about the upcoming Nothing Phone (2a), the cheapest model of Nothing. Recently, a few renders of the smartphone have surfaced, giving a glimpse of the design. And if the renders of the upcoming phone are to be taken as real, the most surprising thing is the absence of the nothing phone’s main USP glyph interface. However, the source who leaked the design has now revealed that the image of the Nothing Phone (2a) was fake.
The leaked image of the Nothing Phone (2a) is actually a fake
The Nothing Phone (2A) is a mid-range device, expected to be positioned below the flagship number series. A joint report by SmartPrix and tipster Steve Hammerstoffer suggested that the London-based brand will drop the Glyph interface from the phone (2A) to cut costs.
However, another popular tipster Evan Blass was skeptical about the leaked renders of the Nothing Phone (2A). He said the leaked computer-aided design (CAD)-based render was not Foxconn-sourced, as is usually the case with renders shared by Steve Hammerstoffer. So accuracy was not applicable to it. Second, Nothing has been teasing the upcoming smartphone with the tagline ‘See the world through fresh eyes’, possibly hinting at a redesigned camera island.
The publication later cross-checked the leak of Nothing Phone (2a) and discovered that the source had given Steve a manipulated render. This is actually a render of an unreleased Nothing device, which never made it to market. It was even seen earlier in a promo video for Nothing Phone (1).
Evan Blass shared the latest and previously leaked renders of the Nothing Phone (2a) as well as a comparison. It turns out that the initial hands-on live images were indeed accurate. Phone (2a) may have circular camera module with two sensors horizontally. It will be surrounded by glyph LED lights, which will attract Nothing fans.
Notably, the Nothing Phone (2a) is expected to debut at the Mobile World Congress 2024 (MWC 2024) event in Barcelona later this month. Although its exact launch date has not been revealed, the London-based company is said to be holding an event on February 27.
