Nothing has started rolling out Nothing OS 1.1.4, an update that brings numerous improvements to the Phone (1). Not only does the update contain new features, but it also bundles camera improvements, system optimisations and bug fixes. Available to download now, Nothing OS 1.1.4 is over a 100 MB download.

Nothing may have confirmed that the Phone (1) will not receive Android 13 this year, but it continues to furnish its first smartphone with new features and optimisations. This time, the company has released Nothing OS 1.1.4, an update that CEO Carl Pei claims is rolling out gradually. However, XDA Developers has managed to obtain links for relevant over-the-air (OTA) files, should you wish to download this month's update manually.

As the screenshot below shows, Nothing OS 1.1.4 contains several new features and improvements. Specifically, Nothing has enabled the LHDC codec for high-definition Bluetooth audio support, as well as integrating all Ear (1) app features within Nothing OS. Hence, gesture control and noise cancellation customisations will be available within Nothing OS, rather than resorting to using a dedicated app to change how the Ear (1) operates. Also, Nothing OS 1.1.4 includes the September 2022 security patch, although it is unclear which version is bundled.

Moreover, Nothing claims to have reduced battery consumption, improved thermal performance and revised the Face Unlock algorithm. Separately, Nothing OS 1.1.4 introduces an increased shooting speed for the ultra-wide-angle camera in HDR mode, along with superior colour calibration and consistency. Overall, this month's update is rather extensive, which explains its 130 MB file size. You can read the full changes contained within Nothing OS 1.1.4 in the image below.
