Nothing announced a March 5 launch date for its upcoming Phone 2A in a new video released today, and confirmed that it will be available in the US as part of a “developer program” instead than a generalized official version. No specifications, images, or pricing of the device have been revealed. For this we will have to wait for the full announcement next month, when we will also have all the details of Nothing’s development program. The event will take place at 11:30 a.m. GMT (6:30 a.m. ET), on company confirmed on.
The developer program looks like a similar release approach to the one Nothing took with its original Phone 1, which arrived in the US as part of a “beta subscription” that saw interested customers pay $299 for ” test » the phone. In contrast, last year’s Phone 2 received a more official US version. No carrier sold it directly and it wasn’t certified to work on Verizon, but it was fully compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T.
Nothing has explicitly confirmed that the Phone 2A will be a more affordable alternative to the Phone 2, but it’s heavily implied. Today’s video contained a leading question about how the company plans to “make this phone cheaper,” but Nothing CEO Carl Pei coyly declined to confirm any pricing details.
While it doesn’t feature an official design of the phone, today’s video includes concept sketches of the Phone 2A that match Roussel’s leak.
Updated February 13 at 5:29 a.m. ET: Updated with additional details from Nothing’s video and launch start time of 11:30 GMT.
