Carl Pei says Nothing Phone (2a) isn't powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7200

Vlad, 19 February 2024

Nothing's teaser campaign for its upcoming Phone (2a) is currently at full steam ahead of the phone's official unveiling on March 5. Today, Nothing CEO Carl Pei has outright stated that the Phone (2a) will not be powered by MediaTek's Dimensity 7200 SoC, contradicting countless rumors we've heard over the past few weeks.

The teaser post on X is embedded above. We gather that Nothing will announce the chipset on February 20 at 10 am London time, so in just a few short hours. That leaves us a little bit of time to speculate. So what do you think it will be?

For what it's worth, some people on X are betting on a "Dimensity 7200 Ultra" or some other "customized" chipset - these seem to be all the rage in certain echelons of the smartphone world for some brands. Let's see if Nothing is one to also basically rebrand a chip in order to make its phone feel special. Hopefully not, but this wouldn't be out of the question.

Anyway, the Nothing Phone (2a) has also been rumored to sport a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED screen, 8/12GB of RAM, 128/256GB of storage, two 50 MP cameras on the rear (one main, one ultrawide), and support for 45W charging. Pricing is rumored at €349 for the 8/128GB model and €399 for the 12/256GB iteration.
