After the highly publicized launch of its first telephone, the Phone (1)It is believed that nothing is already working on its second device. According to several sources in the tech industry, this will be very similar to the phone (1) and is, in fact, even considered a “Lite” version of this device.
Although this device comes with the same screen, processor and cameras as the Telephone (1), there will be two important points of difference – it will have a plain glass back (no LED, no Glyph interface) and will not support wireless charging. It will, however, have a 42W charger in the box, although it also only supports 33W charging. However, when The Mobile Indian contacted Nothing, they denied the existence of such a device.
Nothing Lite Phone (1) Specs and Price (Based on Source)
The second Nothing phone should be a more economical option than the phone (1) which starts at Rs 32,999. Although none of our sources have been certain about the RAM and storage variants, there are 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 bigger 5000mAh battery.
The rest of the specs are supposed to be broadly in line with what we saw in the Nothing Phone (1) – 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ processor, dual cameras 50-megapixel camera on the back and a 16-megapixel front camera. The phone will, of course, run on Nothing’s very minimal Nothing OS interface and come with Android 12 pre-installed, and will also come with IP53 splash resistance.
According to what our sources tell us, Nothing’s second phone is a more user-friendly option for its first device and will allow the brand to capitalize on the hype of the phone (1). The phone (1) has been in high demand since its launch a few weeks ago, and a cheaper device with broadly similar specifications would certainly attract a significant number of users. In fact, if our sources prove to be accurate, the second Nothing phone would be great value for money, although it would lack that incredibly stunning back with 900 LEDs and wireless charging.
Nothing Lite phone availability (1) (according to source)
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 that time as part of a “special offer”.
However, we would like to point out that this information is essentially based on information shared by our sources at the time of writing, without official confirmation from Nothing. We contacted Rien in this regard and the brand denied that a device of this nature is in the works or even in the works. It would be very interesting if there was something to this Nothing rumour, though. We would all love a sub-Rs 25,000 phone with a clean UI and uniform bezel design!
