London-based tech company Nothing recently introduced its affordable Nothing Phone (2a) in various markets, including India. Initially, the device faced performance and camera issues, but subsequent updates have addressed most of these concerns. However, a new problem known as the “green line issue” has emerged on the Phone (2a), a common problem observed in smartphones with OLED displays.

Green Line Mystery on Nothing Phone (2a): Software Update or Hardware Problem?

The issue was brought to attention by a user on X (formerly Twitter) who shared pictures and a video of a Phone (2a) displaying a vertical green line on the right side of the screen. The device was running the latest Nothing OS 2.5.5.a update, released approximately 19 days ago. This marks the first reported case of the green line issue on the Phone (2a).

Previous instances of the green line issue on smartphones like OnePlus and Samsung have often occurred after software updates. Investigations suggest that software updates may alter display settings, potentially causing an electrical fault leading to the appearance of the green line.

However, other factors can also contribute to green lines on smartphone displays, such as physical damage from dropping, bending, or pressure, as well as damage to the display connector or flex cable.

As of now, there have been no additional reports of the green line issue on X or the Nothing Community forums, suggesting that this is an isolated incident. Updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
