Earlier this year, Nothing Phone (1) launched in the market. It was a budget Android smartphone. It was based on Android 12. However, the company has since rolled out its latest build based on Android 13.
Among its many features, the new build brings a lot of changes. For starters, it adds the Google Game Dashboard. With it, users can enjoy better performance and a smoother user experience while playing games. The dashboard also supports screenshots, FPS display, Do Not Disturb, and screen recording.
In addition to the Google Game Dashboard, the updated version of Nothing OS 1.5 comes with a number of new features and upgrades. In particular, the update has improved the Game Mode and includes an improved UI for volume control. It also includes a “self-repair” feature, which automatically clears unused caches and system dumps. In fact, the update increases the speed of app loading by 50%.
The new Nothing OS also adds a new Weather app, Material You integration, and multi-language support. It also has a QR code scanner, granular media controls, and notification control.
