Nothing Phone (2) receives dozens of improvements and bug fixes with latest update
It appears that Nothing is now pushing Nothing OS 2.0.2a to more Phone (2) devices following its announcement last week. To recap, Nothing announced Nothing OS 2.0.2a to address various issues that it shipped in Nothing OS 2.0.2. Please note that only the Phone (2) has received Nothing OS 2.0.2 so far. By contrast, the company has only just started rolling out Nothing OS 2.0.0 to the Phone (1), which we have covered separately.
While Nothing bills the latest update for the Phone (2) as a minor one, it contains numerous changes that defy its 58 MB file size as an over-the-air (OTA) download. As the screenshot below shows, Nothing claims to have resolved an issue that affected Google Wallet working in cloned apps, as well as three bugs that caused certain UI elements to become unresponsive.
Additionally, Nothing OS 2.0.2a reworks haptic feedback strength when typing and refines network reliability with multiple carriers globally, among other improvements. Arguably, the biggest changes relate to the Phone (2)'s camera system, with over a dozen entries dedicated in the company's changelog. For example, Nothing OS 2.0.2a should speed up HDR processing times while also reducing dull tones and the halo effect in Portrait Mode when using HDR mode. Unfortunately, it remains to be seen when Nothing will bring all these changes to the Phone (1). However, you should be able to download Nothing OS 2.0.2a now on the Phone (2) by heading to the main Settings menu and tapping Check for Updates within the System Updates sub-menu.
