Upgrade 17 / 02: new images of the alleged protective cover of Phone (2a) appear, with a look at what the mid-range design should be. You can find all the news directly in the article.
So far we had seen Nothing Phone (2nd) only and only in photo from vivo specially camouflaged by the classic anti-espionage shell, but now the problem no longer arises thanks to the latest innovations. Initially there were some circulating render images (by SmartPrix and OnLeaks) but they turned out to be fake: even the most reliable leakers can make mistakes. Meanwhile, some images have emerged thanks to a cover producer, which reveal what the design of Nothing Phone (2a) should look like.
Nothing Phone (2a): the rendered images reveal its design... or not?
It all starts from this photo from vivo, in which Nothing Phone would have been photographed (2nd). We see a smartphone with a punch-hole display with a side hole on the front and with an unidentified body on the back. The only detail that can be seen is the double camera, no longer positioned at the top left but al center, together with the LED flash. This design is "confirmed" by the protective cover that appears on the net, whose holes reflect the lines of the photographic module.
Thus we arrive at the offending render image, because what was shown by the Onleaks leaks it's not Nothing Phone (2a), as confirmed by the insider himself. Recently the insider published a render of the next upcoming smartphone, but the truth is that it's a fake. Initially it was Evan Blass (another very important name in the field of tech rumors) who raised doubts about the veracity of the image, and now comes the definitive denial. Going to the bottom of the matter, it seems that the source provided OnLeaks with fake renderings, managing to get away with one of the most reliable figures on the market.
Il yield fake shows a Renewed design, which adheres to the aesthetic canons demonstrated so far by Carl Pei's company but changing its characteristics. Compared to the Nothing models known so far, we find the double camera positioned at the top left, once again with positions and shapes that cannot help but recall those of some iPhones. The big absent one seems to be the Glyph interface, which the company would have cut to create differentiation and obviously lower the price compared to the other products in the catalogue.
However this is not the real design of Nothing Phone (2a): the device should have a completely new look, with a dual horizontal camera (as also shown in the previous leak images). Furthermore we should find both the transparent body and the Glyph LED lights, distinctive features of the brand. As proof of this, above you will find a roundup of renderings from a cover producer, which shows the device in the round. Pending further leaks, the appointment is scheduled for MWC 2024 of Barcelona, when at the Catalan fair the Nothing event will reveal everything there is to know about this Phone (2a).
