Nothing Phone 1: Software
The Phone 1 will run on Android 12, but Nothing has introduced a new feature by launching its operating system named Nothing OS, which will work seamlessly with Android giving a different taste to its devices. Carl Pei claims it will “effortlessly connect and integrate Nothing products and products from other world-leading brands.” He compares his vision to how seamlessly the Apple ecosystem works. In that sense, the Nothing OS is supposed to be lightweight and only comprises the best features from “pure” Android. The hardware and software should make for seamless integration through “bespoke fonts, color, graphical elements, and sounds.”
The Nothing OS will deliver a fast, smooth, and personalized experience. It will supposedly come with 40% less pre-installed bloatware than other Android skins. They also said that they would keep the best features of Android and avoid replicating Google’s apps which will be, according to them, a waste of time and space, and this will save the Phones lots of Ram and Storage and operate more smoothly. It will focus more on user experience and learn from user’s app usage to better optimize the phone for the user, like adjusting the device’s battery life per the user’s use.
It will also follow Nothing’s unique and consistent dot-like font throughout the UI. The transitions will be smooth and fast. And just like many Android OEMs, Nothing will offer four years of security updates and three years of major Android OS updates to the Nothing Phone 1. The OS will also feature a unique in-built voice recorder. The remarkable thing about it is that it will let users rotate a wheel to control playback.
This is all information about Nothing Phone 1, and many points, there is no charger included with Nothing Phone 1 as others have also discarded it from the box. You will need to purchase a charger separately.
