Nothing Phone (2) gains Pocket Mode, improved Glyph Interface support and other changes with Nothing OS 2.0.3 update
Nothing has pushed another update to the Phone (2), shortly after the company issued Nothing OS 2.0.2a for its second smartphone. For reference, Nothing OS 2.0.2a brought dozens of improvements to the Phone (2), and just as many bug fixes. In comparison, Nothing OS 2.0.3 contains fewer changes than last month's build, the changelog for which we have embedded below.
Nonetheless, Nothing OS 2.0.3 is approximately a 100 MB over-the-air (OTA) download, making it about twice the size of Nothing OS 2.0.2a. According to Nothing, Nothing OS 2.0.3 focuses on improving it Glyph Interface by adding support for the Zomato app in Glyph Progress. Additionally, this month's update introduces a compass widget, a feature that relies upon the e-Compass inside the Phone (2).
Moreover, Nothing OS 2.0.3 adds a Pocket Mode, which appears to operate just as OnePlus' equivalent. Thus, the Phone (2) will warn you via a UI element when it is in Pocket Mode, during which all touch inputs are disabled. Furthermore, the new update for the Phone (2) also makes various other minor changes, including but not limited to improved haptic feedback, NFC stability and Bluetooth connection stability.
