Nothing Tech released the most anticipated Nothing OS 2.0 firmware update for the Phone 1. While an Android 14 developer preview is already in the works, for the Nothing Phone 1, users are most excited about the new stable Nothing OS 2.0.2 featuring Android 13.
Last month, Nothing OS 2.0.2 build released for the Phone 1 with all the Nothing Phone 2 features including new Glyph composer, Nothing X app, and new camera apps and features. However, the firmware had some issues and hence the update was paused. Those who have already updated to stable NOS 2.0.2 OTA can download the new Nothing OS 2.0.2 hotfix OTA below.
The new hotfix update for Nothing Phone 1 brings a welcome set of bug fixes like optimized temperature warnings, the annoyance of unexpected auto-brightness issues resolved, and an overall boost in system stability.
To ensure you enjoy these improvements, make sure to install the Nothing OS 2.0.2 update on your Nothing Phone 1.
Nothing OS 2.0 for the Phone 1 packs exciting features, enhanced customization, and improved functionality.
For one, it features the updated Nothing OS 2.0 Launcher with tons of customization options. It gives your phone a fresh new look with a new UI, a new grid layout option, and also supports the option to hide icon labels.
With Nothing OS 2.0, the team has overhauled the design of key widgets including Clock, Weather, and Quick Look. Widgets are now available on the lockscreen and Always-On Display (AOD) as well!
Glyph Interface is the key highlight of this new update. Essential notifications take center stage, allowing you to mark select apps and contacts with persistent Glyphs. Stay informed at a glance, with important missed notifications catching your eye the moment you unlock your phone.
A simple long press on the Glyph Torch Quick Settings tile lights up the entire back of the phone and use it as a torch.
Nothing OS 2.0 also brings two new essential apps named Cloned and App Locker. The names are self-explanatory.
