However, Nothing’s upcoming smartphone will not be exactly the same as the Nothing Phone (1). One of the biggest differences compared to the Phone (1) would be the absence of the Glyph interface and the LED lights. As per the report, Nothing will use a plain glass back for its upcoming phone. Additionally, the brand might be planning to ditch wireless charging in order to keep the cost low.
Talking about the cost, the upcoming Nothing smartphone is tipped to be priced around ₹25,000 for the 6GB + 128GB configuration in the Indian market. If true, the smartphone could pose a threat to the likes of Redmi and Realme. The device is said to come with a 42W fast charging adapter in the box. However, it might support 33W fast charging. The upcoming Nothing smartphone could be announced during India’s festive season as per the report.
