As the launch of the smartphone is getting closer, we have already seen it on several certification websites. However, this time, the phone has appeared in a TUV listing, confirming a specification that it will be different from its bigger sibling.
Nothing Phone (2A) launch near, TUV-certified
The Nothing phone (2a) has passed the TUV certification website with model number A142. The listing confirms that the phone will retain the same 45W fast charging speed (2A) as the Nothing phone. This is definitely good news, as slow charging speeds are not common in the segment where the phone is expected to be launched.
Additionally, what sets Nothing's fast charging technology apart is its use of the Universal USB Power Delivery standard. This standard is also used by iPhone, Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy devices. On the other hand, Chinese phones opt for a proprietary fast charging standard that is incompatible with phones from other brands.
If the Nothing phone (2a) does indeed support 45W USB-PD charging, the phone may not come with a charger in the box like Nothing's previous devices. USB-PD chargers are more expensive but can charge many products from laptops to iPads and phones. Wireless charging is not expected to be available on the Nothing phone (2A).
