Focus on Core User Needs
Nothing co-founder Akis Evangelidis says that with the Phone 2a, the company has doubled down on the core user needs – performance, camera, and such. It also leverages the premium features of the Nothing Phone 2 while ensuring it is an upgrade of the Phone 1. There is no launch date yet for the Nothing Phone 2a. It is however speculated that the Phone 2a could be unveiled during this month’s Mobile World Congress (MWC).
New Wearables on the Horizon
There are also hints that Nothing is also planning to unveil two new wearables – a pair of earbuds and a neckband.
