Last year in July, Nothing made its entry into the smartphone market by introducing the Nothing Phone (1), which featured an innovative semi-transparent rear design adorned with LED lights. The brand recently confirmed that the Nothing Phone (2) will launch on July 11th, 2023. It is confirmed to come preloaded with the Nothing OS 2.0-based Android 13. It is good to know that the Phone (1) users will also receive the new update.
Nothing Phone (1) Nothing OS 2.0 release timeframe
Software support is very important to us. Nothing OS 2.0 will be coming to Phone (1) users by the end of August.

In the aforementioned tweet, Pei highlights the importance of software support for the Nothing brand. Additionally, he announced that users of Phone (1) would receive the Nothing OS 2.0 update by the end of August.
Nothing OS 2.0: what to expect?
In a recent interview, Mladen M. Hoyss, Nothing’s Software Creative Director, said the company prioritises “functional aesthetics” in Nothing OS 2.0, aiming to present data in a visually appealing and easily comprehensible way while avoiding information overload.
Instead of providing a grid of app icons on the homescreen, Nothing OS 2.0 will focus on delivering a personalised experience that exceeds superficial customization options that are offered by other brands. With Nothing OS 2.0, there will be no need to do extensive scrolling or deep navigation to find the desired information. Personalised content will be readily available on Nothing OS 2.0.
The company is yet to launch the Nothing OS 2.0 update. The company is expected to announce it alongside the Nothing Phone (2) on July 11th. The Phone (1) is entitled to receive 3 years of Android updates and 4 years of security patches. The device debuted with the Android 12 OS onboard and has already received the Android 13 OS upgrade.
The upcoming Nothing Phone (2) is expected to come preloaded with Nothing OS 2.0. It is confirmed to receive three years of Android OS upgrades and four years of security updates.
