The Nothing Phone (2a) will be powered by a custom MediaTek chipset


In the coming weeks, the Nothing Phone (2a) will be officially launched. Nothing has been steadily teasing the launch of the handset, which will be designed as a lower-cost alternative to the Nothing Phone (2).

That being said, what kind of hardware could the phone be packing as a result of this lower price? While the rest of the phone’s specs will be revealed eventually, Nothing has posted a new video on its YouTube channel. In the video, they confirm that the phone will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Pro chipset.

If you’ve never heard of the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Pro, it is because this is a collaboration between Nothing and MediaTek. The company worked together with MediaTek to co-engineer a customized version of the Dimensity 7200. The company claims that this will offer better software and hardware integration.

According to Nothing, they did consider using Qualcomm’s chipsets, such as the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 and the Snapdragon 782G. Nothing acknowledges that Qualcomm might have better brand awareness compared to MediaTek, but the company was looking for the best bang for their buck and they landed on the Dimensity 7200 Pro. Nothing also dives into the technical details and explains it in a pretty easy-to-understand way, so if you’re curious, check out the video above.
