Nothing Phone 1 Android 13 stable update rolling out now

17 February 2023 2

The much-awaited Android 13 stable update is now available for Nothing Phone 1 users. A number of users have posted about receiving the update on Reddit and the official Nothing Discord server. These users are from India, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Ukraine suggesting it is a worldwide release.

The latest Android version has arrived in the form of Nothing OS 1.5.2 which is an OTA release. The update weighs 157MB for public beta testers but its size is unknown for those who were running the stable Android 12. It will likely be into GBs for those users. Nevertheless, we suggest connecting to a WiFi network before proceeding with the download.

Android 13 was under beta testing for the last couple of months or so. It comes loaded with a number of new features but for some reason, the stable version comes with a month-old security patch (January 2023). The official changelog for the update is listed below:

Weather app

  • New Nothing weather app
  • Tapping a weather widget on the home screen now directly opens the corresponding city in the app instead of opening a link.

Customization

  • All new Glyph sound pack for more ringtone and notification sounds.
  • More color schemes are available from the wallpaper selector.
  • New collection of minimalist wallpapers.
  • Icons can match your background color to make your home screen look more consistent.
  • Lockscreen shortcut customizations. Create shortcuts for the camera, torch, device controls, and wallet.

Improved experience

  • Easily switch data usage when using dual SIM with the improved network Quick Settings panel.
  • Automatically show the current network and display how much mobile data you have used in Quick Settings.
  • Directly scan a QR code in the Camera app. Scanner also appears as a shortcut in Quick Settings.
  • Select language preferences for different apps.

Visual improvement

  • A New look for Media Control. Puts album artwork on full display with a wider set of music controls.
  • Improved volume settings panel. Allows granular volume control without unlocking the device.
  • Improved Game Mode light notifications. So there is less distraction when you are playing.
  • Smoother animations when transitioning the display between on and off.
  • More refined Camera app interface.

Privacy and safety

  • Get an alert when an app accesses your clipboard. Cleared history after a period of time to prevent unwanted access.
  • Added Personal Safety app.
  • Better privacy protection including Photo Picker, nearby Wi-Fi devices permission, and select media permission.

System performance

  • Fingerprint unlock accuracy has improved by up to 12%.
  • App startup speed has increased by up to 71%.
  • Standby power consumption has improved by up to 50%.
  • Implemented a new self-repair feature to periodically delete unused system dumps and cache.
  • Increased system stability.
  • General bug fixes.
