Nothing is likely to launch its next smartphone Nothing Phone 2a, an affordable lineup that will sit just below its premium Nothing Phone 2 model. But there are only a few things we know so far thanks to the rumor mill. And since CG Group is officially bringing Nothing phones in Nepal, it’s logical that we also be curious about this iconic Android phone. Let’s explore all that we know about Nothing Phone 2a and its possible price in Nepal as well as its design, features, battery, etc.
Nothing Phone 2a is coming to play in the affordable smartphone lineup. It’s more of a budget-friendly version of the Nothing Phone 2 than its successor. So, expect specs that would befit its price, but that won’t mean you will get anything low and below. Nothing intrinsically manufactures phones to give Android users a futuristic and stylish device that’s distinct from the lot. Nothing Phone 2 was launched in early 2023 and the Carl Pei-founded Android OEM is readying to launch the Nothing Phone 2a to kickstart 2024. Let’s get into more details.
Currently, Chaudhary Group is prepared to bring Nothing Phone 2 to Nepal. So, the Nothing Phone 2a is also very likely to make it into the Nepali smartphone market.
Design and Display
The rumors and leaks hint that Nothing Phone (2a) will maintain the brand’s distinct design profile. We are mostly talking about the glyph interface. However, to maintain its affordability, Nothing is said to have cut down some number of LED lights. Also, there could be some differences in the camera hardware. The leaks suggest that Nothing Phone 2a will feature a dual-camera setup on the back. This could consist of the main 50MP sensor and an ultrawide ensemble set vertically in the center. The front camera might be a 32 MP shooter useful for front photos and video taking.
Similarly, Nothing Phone 2a might come with the same 6.7-inch OLED screen and 120 Hz refresh rate. While the screen size could be similar, to the Nothing Phone 2, there could be some compromises in terms of brightness measurement, and LTPO technology.
Performance and Storage
Rumors have it that the Nothing Phone 2a will come with the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 chipset. It’s a 4nm SoC with octa-core processors. It consists of 2 Cortex A715 prime cores at 2.8 GHz and 6 Cortex A510 secondary cores speeding at 2.0 GHz. The process supports a decent level of gaming and for networks, it supports 5G connectivity. Complementing the chipset could be the Arm Mali-G610 MC4 GPU for graphics assignments. Coupled with it, the model could start at 8GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. Although, we can’t say the exact RAM/ROM combo now. But considering the price factor, this might as well be the case unless Nothing wants to make a huge statement. Nothing Phone 2 starts at the same RAM/ROM figures too.
Nothing Phone 2a could feature at least over 4,000mAh battery for sure. There are phones such as OnePlus 12R which offers more battery power than its original model. So, it won’t be a surprise if Nothing fits over a 5,000mAh battery. It will certainly carry fast-charging support but may have up to 33W capacity only. The Nothing Phone 2 carries a 4,700mAh battery so to speak. Either way, battery capacity may not be a huge issue as most Android smartphones these days offer almost an entire day of use on a full charge.

Nothing Phone 2a price in Nepal and Availability
Nothing Phone 2a could launch at the Mobile World Congress MWC in Barcelona on February 26, 2024. Since CG is Nothing’s local partner for Nepal, the device will certainly make its way officially into the country after its release. In Nepal Nothing Phone 2a could come at a price of Rs 58,000 for the 8/128 GB variant. It’s not a totally mid-range device price so it fits right in there as the premium upper-mid-range device just like the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus 5G.
Nothing Phone 2a will carry the trend of manufacturers offering a more affordable variant from their flagship lineup just like OnePlus 12R for the latest example. So, to render it more affordable than its original lineup, the company will likely make some compromises in hardware. In essence, The Nothing Phone 2a will be a toned-down version of its big brother. Let’s conclude that you will have a slightly cheaper Nothing Phone and still be able to enjoy its iconic glyph interface and distinct design ambiance.
