Nothing OS 2.0 update: Nothing CEO Carl Pei back in June 2023 had announced that the Nothing Phone 1 will get Android 13-based Nothing OS 2.0 update by the end of this month. Now, roughly two months later the company has started rolling out Nothing OS 2.0 update to Nothing Phone 1 users across the globe. The announcement was made by Pei via a post on X (formerly Twitter). “We’ve now began rolling out Nothing OS 2 for Phone (1),” he wrote in a post on the platform.

It is worth noting that when Nothing had launched its first second-gen smartphone, that is, the Nothing Phone 2, last month, it shipped with Android 13-based Nothing OS 2.0 update. More recently, the company rolled out Nothing OS 2.0.2a update to the Nothing Phone 2 with a bunch of camera improvements and some bug fixes. Now, a little over a month after the launch, Nothing has also started shipping the much awaited Nothing OS 2.0 update to its last year’s smartphone.
