Nothing Phone (1) made its global debut last month and it looks like the company may soon launch a new Nothing Phone smartphone called Nothing Phone (1) lite. According to a report by TheMobileIndia, Nothing is gearing up to launch Nothing Phone (1) lite, following the popularity of Nothing Phone (1), the first smartphone from UK-based OnePlus startup co-founder Carl Pei. The report suggests that the Nothing Phone (1) lite is aimed at buyers of budget smartphones and that it will be quite affordable compared to the Nothing Phone (1). Priced at Rs 32,999, Nothing Phone (1) became hugely popular among tech enthusiasts thanks to the iconic Glyph interface on the back which consists of 900 LEDs that light up and flicker according to the user’s need. But the report indicates that the feature could be one of the main reasons affecting the pricing of the Nothing Phone (1) as the lite version of the device will lack the Glyph interface.
According to the report, the Nothing Phone (1) lite will not have wireless charging and the LED strips on the back to keep the smartphone budget-friendly. Apart from this, the Nothing Phone (1) lite would be similar to the Nothing Phone (1). While Nothing has denied the existence of such a smartphone, the reports suggest that the Nothing Phone (1) lite will cost Rs 24,999 for the 6GB+128GB variant. The smartphone is also expected to have a larger 5,000 mAh battery.
In terms of specifications, the Nothing Phone (1) lite would be similar to the Nothing Phone (1) with 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 778+ chipset, dual 50MP rear camera setup, Android 12-based Nothing OS and 16MP selfie shooter.
