The Nothing Phone 2a Special Edition is Certainly Something Else

 

It's been a couple of months now since Nothing first unveiled the budget-friendly Phone 2a, and the company has once again put the 2a in the spotlight with the launch of a new special edition of the handset. Simply dubbed the "Nothing Phone (2a) Special Edition," the new variant focuses more on looks, retaining the same hardware components as the more standard model.

 

Nothing says that this is the company's first-ever product to incorporate the three primary colors (red, blue and yellow) into a single device, as most of its previous products come with more minimalist designs. Adam Bates, Design Director at Nothing comments:

 

We are very happy to unveil Phone (2a) Special Edition. The first product to explore our palette of the primary colours; red, blue and yellow. Its overall aesthetic references some of our design heroes from the past, whilst creating a new expression for a smartphone. Elevating a functional device into a striking piece of art.

In addition to the more colorful rear design, the phone comes with a custom MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Pro chipset, a dual 50MP camera array, complemented by a 32 MP front camera that uses the same sensor as the Phone 2, and a large 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, as well as a maximum brightness of up to 1,300 nits.

 

In terms of price, the Phone 2a Special Edition is available in a 12+256GB model which retails for £349 GBP, or around $445 when converted. Unfortunately, it's not available for North America at the moment, although we're hoping this changes soon.


The Nothing Phone 2(a) is now Available in Blue

 

Following the launch of a new "Nordic" Blue OnePlus Watch 2 variant and a leaked blue Pixel 8a model, it looks like Nothing is the latest company to follow this year's trend of launching blue-themed tech. More specifically, Nothing's budget-friendly Phone 2a is now available in a rather cool-looking blue colorway, although there's a catch to the new launch.

 

As it turns out, the blue Nothing Phone 2a is currently exclusive for buyers in India via Flipkart, although aside from the difference in hues the phone remains largely the same in terms of specs. For those unfamiliar, it packs a custom MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Pro chipset, a custom SoC developed by Nothing in collaboration with MediaTek, and it's backed by up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

As with the regular 2a, the blue variant does come with the signature transparent design as seen on other Nothing Phones, although it features a slightly different rear panel design due to the re-arranged camera module, which Nothing refers to as "The Eyes" - housed in a central NFC coil, the setup houses a dual 50MP camera array, complemented by a 32 MP front camera that uses the same sensor as the Phone 2.


Leaks Reveal New Info about HMD's Upcoming "Pulse Pro" Smartphone

 

Aside from some teasers and leaks every now and then, we haven't heard a lot about HMD's upcoming smartphones. The company has made it clear that it will be marketing phones under a new brand separate from Nokia, with several different models rumored to be in production. One of those is the rumored HMD "Pulse Pro" model, which has recently been leaked again online.

As reported by the folks at 91mobiles, the HMD Pulse Pro will come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, with a launch price of around EUR 179. The phone is also expected to come with a 6.56-inch IPS 90Hz display with a 1480×720 pixel resolution, and will run on a Unisoc T606 SoC; the handset is also rumored to come with a 5,000 mAh battery.

Additionally, several design renders of the upcoming phone were shared via 91mobiles and @OnLeaks, which showcase a look that's not too far off from some of Nokia's current Android offerings. Based on the renders, it looks like HMD is still banking on the budget smartphone approach that it capitalized earlier on with the Nokia brand.


Nothing reveals the products to be announced on April 18

 

Nothing teased earlier this week a new product announcement scheduled to take place on April 18. Although we didn't expect the company to unveil what will be announced until closer to the actual reveal date, Nothing thought it would be better this way.

 

Over the weekend, Nothing has taken to Twitter to confirm that two pairs of earbuds will be introduced on April 18: Nothing Ear and Nothing Ear (a). That means that we won't be seeing any new phones during the event, unless Nothing pulls a "one more thing" moment.

 

2024 is the year we're unveiling the ultimate iteration of Nothing Audio with two new products that reflect the culmination of three years of design and innovation. What we envisioned from the start - premium for everyone that isn't about market price, but user preference.

 

The launch of these two upcoming products marks an important milestone for Nothing, as the company decided to reset its naming strategy. Basically, Nothing has dropped the numbers from the names of its products "to center the focus around the product and the unique experience it delivers for each user."

 

It's one way to simplify a portfolio that expands every year with dozens of new products. Time will tell whether or not Nothing's new naming strategy will have a positive effect on the brand.


Infinix could finally be making its way to the US!

 

Infinix has some pretty awesome phones under its belt. The company has come up with a bunch of pretty cool ideas for its phones. The only problem is that those of us living stateside can only watch from the sidelines. This is because Infinix does not sell its phones officially in the US as they operate pretty much only in Asia, Africa, and Europe.

 

That could change soon, according to a report from Android Headlines. The publication claims to have heard from a trusted source that Infinix is expected to make its way to the US market in the near future.

 

There are signs that this could indeed be happening. A report from MySmartPrice from a couple of weeks ago revealed that the Infinix GT 20 Pro was spotted at the FCC. Usually phones sold in the US need FCC approval before they hit the shelves, so this does lend some credibility to the report.

 

That being said, it should be pointed out that the US market is extremely competitive. You have brands like Apple and Samsung that are clearly dominating the market, so it will be interesting to see how Infinix fares.
