Nothing Phone (1), the brand’s first smartphone with a distinct design, was introduced last month. While the brackets numbering method would suggest that the Nothing Phone (2) is the next in line, a fresh report claims otherwise. According to The Mobile Indian, a Nothing Phone (1) Lite model could emerge in India in October of this year.

Of course, no brand would release a single handset, and other handsets from the brand are expected in the future, but not this soon. When the publication contacted Nothing, the company denied plans to release a Lite version of Phone (1). We contacted Nothing for a reaction but have yet to hear back.
Nothing Phone (1) Lite: Here’s What We Know So Far
According to the source, the Lite model has the identical body language and configuration as the Phone (1) (review), with the only difference being the absence of the Glyph interface and wireless charging on the Lite model.

This would reduce the cost, thus justifying the “Lite” designation, but the unusual LEDs at the back are what make Phone (1) stand out, and eliminating them may not appeal to potential consumers as a worthwhile exchange.
This scaled-down version of Nothing Phone (1) may also include a somewhat larger 5,000mAh battery (up from the 4,500mAh of its elder sibling), and despite support for 33W fast charging, the source claims that buyers will receive a 42W charger inside the box.
Unlike the Phone (1), the Lite will be available with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage for Rs. 24,999. For comparison, the Phone (1)’s base edition – 8GB RAM with 128GB storage – costs Rs. 32,999.
Aside from the RAM, battery, and unexpected 42W charger, the Snapdragon 778G+ CPU, 6.55-inch 120Hz AMOLED panel, dual 50-megapixel back cameras, and a 16-megapixel front lens are all included in the box.
