AdvertisementCarl Pei-led Nothing Technologies recently launched their Nothing phone (1), the company’s first Android smartphone and one of the most hyped launches of the year.
Soon after its launch, a report by The Mobile Indian suggested that the company is working on a new device. The report had claimed that it will be a “Lite” version of the nothing phone (1).

The report suggested that the “Lite” phone in the works will be offered at an affordable price with a starting price of ₹24,999. To recall, the Nothing phone (1) is priced starting at ₹32,999.
The report added that the device would ditch the device’s most iconic feature, the transparent back with the Glyph Interface. Another feature that was reportedly removed was wireless charging. The above two features are among the most popular features on the Nothing phone (1), and separate the device from the rest.
The report added that the “Lite” version would retain the rest of the specifications, such as the display, the processor, and the cameras. The battery was reported to receive an update. It was expected to be powered by a 5,000mAh battery.
It makes sense for Pei to come out and deny the report as a device with such a huge price difference has the potential to affect the sales of the Nothing phone (1), even if it does not feature the Glyph Interface.
