The Nothing Phone line could be enriched with another more convenient device, accessible for those who are not yet able to purchase the first mid-range model or the second top of the range. While Carl Pei’s team continues to work on Nothing Chats following its removal from the Play Store due to the lack of end-to-end encryption, a small teaser video of what appears to be one has leaked online sketch di Nothing Phone (2a). Here is the information known to date.
Does Nothing Phone (2a) really exist? Here’s what it could look like
Nothing Phone (2a) could be clearly distinguished from Phone (1) and Phone (2). On the back, as you can see from the tweet below shared by evowizz, a round camera module with two sensors positioned in the center, surrounded by three smaller Glyph LEDs compared to those seen in the first two models.
Meet the Nothing Phone (2a)!
Codenames: Pacman / Aero(dactyl?).
Nothing’s next phone comes with a Mediatek SoC for the first time. The Mediatek Dimensity 7200. It has 3 Glyph parts, and a brand new design.

Under the body, however, the equipment of the SoC Dimensity 7200 di MediaTek, released in February 2023 and featuring 2 Arm Cortex-A715 cores up to 2.8GHz and six Cortex-A510 cores. There is no lack of support for tri-band WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 connections, as well as lenses up to 200 megapixels. Finally, the leaker claims that Nothing Phone (2a) should be known by the model number A142 and have a 6.7-inch panel. As per practice, however, it is advisable to take these rumors with a pinch of salt.
Always talking about new phones arriving on the market, apparently Xiaomi 14 Pro may not arrive in Europe and remain exclusively in China.
