For selfies, the Phone 2a will be relying on a 32MP Sony IMX615 shooter, notes Smartprix. As it stands, the rear camera system is similar to what we have seen on the recent Moto G84, which also falls under the mid-range Android phone segment.
The Phone 2a is rumored to have a 6.7-inch display featuring a 120Hz refresh rate, and according to Kamila, this display bears the rm692h5 model number manufactured by Visionox and BOE. Previous leaks have further projected Nothing ditching Qualcomm in favor of MediaTek's Dimensity 7200 SoC powering the device (with A142 model number) and a revamped Glyph interface distributed in three parts, unlike the Phone (1) and Phone (2), across the new circular camera visor.
Smartprix has also managed to gather the wallpapers of the upcoming Nothing Phone 2a, which is said to have at least seven wallpapers featuring 'Ruxe,' 'Nexul,' 'Azunim White,' 'Orbique,' 'Rubrane Black,' 'Ambra,' and 'Virmar.' As for the launch, the device is expected to be unveiled at MWC 2024 in Barcelona.
