Even though the Nothing Phone (1) isn’t available in the states, at least not yet, there are several U.S.-based consumers and phone enthusiasts who continue to follow developments of the Nothing Phone (1). Nothing founder Carl Pei (who has the best Twitter handle in the biz, @getpeid) has been talking about creating a Nothing ecosystem much as Apple and Samsung have already accomplished, and Google is on the way to doing.

Shooting moving subjects is easier after the update as Nothing includes a new motion detection algorithm that improves stability. And users will get to snap photos using a higher speed when using HDR in ultra-wide mode. The update adds the September security patch (and this writer has yet to receive the September patch for his Pixel 6 Pro!). It also lowers battery consumption for the Always On Display.
The update includes a new Face Unlock algorithm, a new UI for system updates, and improved thermal performance. The latter means that the phone will not get as hot.
Lastly, the update includes three specific bug fixes (one fixes network issues for certain carriers, one exterminates a bug that shows incoming calls as coming from an Unknown Contact, and a third fixes an issue with the fingerprint sensor and the HDFC bank app). There are also general bug fixes.
To update the Nothing Phone (1), go to Settings > System > System update. Because Android 13 won’t be available for the phone until next year, this update is based on Android 12.
