Nothing Phone (1) gains second software in less than a month with Nothing OS 1.1.2 containing various improvements and features
Nothing has released another software update for the Phone (1), having issued the smartphone's inaugural update less than two weeks ago. As we reported at the time, Nothing rolled out Nothing OS 1.1.0, which added support for HDR10+ and improved the default camera app's UI, among other changes. Now, Nothing has started rolling out Nothing OS 1.1.2, a minor update that Carl Pei promoted on Twitter.
As the screenshot below shows, Nothing OS 1.1.2 features six changes from Nothing OS 1.1.0, which was approximately a 100 MB download. In comparison, Nothing OS 1.1.2 is approximately a third the download size. However, it still contains a few useful features, such as adding a toggle for showing the fingerprint icon when the display has been switched off. Additionally, Nothing has changed the default behaviour of the device's always on display (AOD). After installing Nothing OS 1.1.2, the Nothing Phone (1) will disable its AOD functionality by default at night.
Moreover, Nothing claims to have improved charging performance and compatibility with third-party chargers, an issue that some people reported at launch. Also, Nothing claims to have optimised minor UI details, resolved a Bluetooth codec issue, improved overall stability and applied general bug fixes. Seemingly, Nothing OS 1.1.2 leaves the Nothing Phone (1) on the July 2022 security patch; Google has not released August patches yet. In other words, the Nothing Phone (1) could receive a second update later this month too.
