Nothing Phone (1) update

Here is the list of changes to the Nothing Phone (1)’s new Nothing OS 1.5.2, which is based on Android 13.


Nothing founder Carl Pei was raving on Twitter about the alleged improvement in battery life following the update.

Even though this is the first stable build of Nothing OS 1.5, the current wave may only be for people who are already in the Open Beta. All users should be able to get the stable version of Android 13 over-the-air (OTA) in the next week, unless any major bugs are found. Meanwhile, a recent report said that the Nothing Phone (1) Android 13 update will probably be released soon in the UK and India.
