Nothing aims to improve the Phone (1)'s weakest part with the newest Nothing OS 1.1.3
Nothing’s first smartphone the Phone (1) has garnered a positive reception. In our review of the device, we praised the device for its innovative design, long battery life, and good display with accurate color reproduction. However, we noticed that the phone drops the ball hard in low-light camera performance with images taken in darker and high-contrast scenes suffering from blur and a lack of brightness. Nothing has now started pushing the Nothing OS 1.1.3 to phones, hoping to resolve a bunch of these camera issues.
Nothing OS 1.1.3 is rolling out less than a month after the Nothing OS 1.1.2 update. The update brings a faster Night Mode and quicker HDR photo processing. A faster Night Mode can potentially reduce the blur introduced into the photos due to shaky hands. Similarly, zoom shots now also enjoy reduced blurriness and added sharpness following the update.
The ultrawide shooter also sees noticeable changes like improved color saturation. Additionally, the Nothing Phone (1) now optimizes the color and brightness of the images taken with the Glyph lighting. Finally, for those who need it, users will get an occasional reminder to wipe the camera lens.
Aside from the camera improvements, Nothing OS 1.1.3 also carries bug fixes. For instance, the bug causing stutter and slowdowns in apps like Twitter has been fixed. Similarly, wonky mobile hotspot performance has also been resolved.
