Nothing’s Phone 2a will debut on March 5

It will see a limited release in the US as part of a ‘developer program.’

Nothing has announced that it will release its latest phone 2a, on March 5, but that’s not a surprise for American fans of the product. Instead of an official release like the Phone 2, the device will come to the US as part of a “developer program”. It sounds a lot like the original Phone 1 release, which sold for $299 in the States under a similar-sounding “Beta Membership” program.

The company hasn’t released any images or pricing of the device, but the company may use a simplified Phone 2 aesthetic. The unique design was a standout feature thanks to the transparent Gorilla Glass back, 11 LED “glyph” strips, a metal frame and curved edges.

The Phone 2a is rumored to be a budget version of the Phone 2, priced at $600. In a teaser video, the company questioned how it could make it “cheaper” and also noted that it had developed better supplier connections so it could pass on savings to customers. Earlier rumors pegged the European price at around €400 ($430), saving on parts a cheaper MediaTek Dimensity 7200 processor.

The same rumors suggest that it will have a simplified interface with fewer LED strips, and dual cameras centered on the top like an eye on the head (somewhat backed up by Nothing’s “see the world through fresh eyes” as The Verge points out). The sketches shown in Nothing’s release video seem to back up that claim. We may learn more soon, as Nothing is holding a press conference in Barcelona for the Mobile World Conference (MWC) on February 27th.
