The next Nothing Phone could be a “Lite” version, without the Glyph LEDs: report
Just a few weeks after Carl Pei’s Nothing launched the phone (1), it looks like the company is working on another device. Nothing is allegedly working on a Lite version of the phone which may lack the signature Glyph interface, according to a report from The Mobile Indian.
Although it may seem surprising, it seems that the rumored phone will be a pocket version of the phone (1). The report suggests that nothing can reduce certain features such as the Glyph interface and wireless charging. But the “Lite” version will have the same processor, display and camera sensors. It may also come with a charger in the box to make up for the lack of wireless charging. What’s interesting is that the rumored phone could sport a slightly larger 5,000mAh battery.
Although there is no information on RAM and storage options, the report suggests that the Lite version might cost around Rs 24,999 for the 6GB/128GB variant, which might make it more appealing to some users. It should be noted that Nothing has denied that it works on such a phone.
Currently, the Nothing Phone (1) starts at Rs 32,999. Similar to the Nothing Phone (1), the rumored phone will run on Nothing OS based on Android 12 out of the box and will feature IP53 splash resistance.
There is no doubt that the Nothing Phone (1) has generated a lot of interest and hype in the Indian market. A cheaper “lighter” variant could help the company win more customers. But then that would take away from the bold design, with the lack of Glyph lights. After all, the design is the unique aspect of the Nothing Phone (1).
Meanwhile, the company has already released two software updates to tweak and improve the user interface of the existing Nothing Phone (1). The latest update brings improvements to the fingerprint scanner and always-on display.
