You can make as many jokes as you wish about the moniker of the Nothing Phone (1) smartphone, but perhaps nobody can deny that the gadget is a pretty decent one, at least for those who don’t necessarily want to see top features in a smartphone.
The 8 to 12GB of RAM, the 4,500mAh battery, or the Snapdragon 778G processor likely represent the main specs of the Nothing Phone (1) device that was released last year in July. The phone also came equipped with Android 12 out of the box, which was upgradable to 13, Nothing OS 1.5.3. However, it’s exciting to realize that the London-based company known as Nothing will now raise the stakes a bit.
Carl Pei announces the arrival of the Nothing OS 2.0 to Phone (1) in August 2023
Carl Pei, the CEO of Nothing himself, brings the news that many users of Nothing Phone (1) have been waiting for: the Nothing OS 2.0 update will arrive by the end of August to those who have the device.
Carl Pei wrote in a tweet:
Software support is very important to us. Nothing OS 2.0 will be coming to Phone (1) users by the end of August.
In an interview that XDA had with Mladen M. Hoyss, the Software Creative Director at Nothing, he provided insights into what people can expect from Nothing OS 2.0.
Hoyss, formerly from Blloc, joined Nothing to create a new look for the operating system. Nothing OS 2.0 aims to introduce a concept called “functional aesthetics,” combining data visualization and ease of use. Intentional smartphone consumption is a major focus, aiming to allowi users to be productive and have fun within the Nothing ecosystem.
The home screen of Nothing OS will prioritize personalization. It will also provide at-a-glance access to personal interests and information. The objective is to create a functional and easy-to-use environment where users can access what they need without having to scroll too much.
Looking ahead, Nothing aims to build stable and beautiful products without overpromising.
Nothing’s upcoming smartphone, the Nothing Phone (2), is set to launch alongside Nothing OS 2.0. The company intends to take a bold approach to Android, addressing visual inconsistency and potentially offering a drastic overhaul of the user experience.
