After a huge build-up, the Nothing Phone 1 was finally released in mid-July. But a few weeks away and the hype for the phone has abated significantly. But this is part of the course, and while public interest may have waned, nothing remains behind the scenes to improve its smartphone. The company has released three firmware updates, the latest being the Nothing OS 1.1.2 update.

The over-the-air (OTA) update is coming, with some general fixes, stability improvements, and improvements for the operating system. In the previous update, version 1.1.0, Nothing added a fix for the fingerprint reader icon disappearing. Now it adds a toggle that allows users to see the fingerprint icon on the lock screen when it is moved or viewed. In addition, the Always On Display (AOD) is now turned off at night by default, but this option can be changed in the Settings menu.
The Nothing Phone 1 supports up to 33W PD3.0 wired charging and can also support 15W Qi wireless charging. Like many companies, Nothing didn’t have a wall adapter in the box, forcing consumers to use their own adapter or buy a new one. That’s why the phone should have a wide range of compatibility when it comes to chargers. Fortunately, the new update brings better support for third-party chargers and also improvements in charging performance.
Like previous updates, general bug fixes and stability improvements are also included. While Nothing does not mention many of these solutions, it does mention that it fixed a problem with the Bluetooth codec. The company has also optimized the user interface. The 35MB update can be downloaded OTA, or you can sideload the new build without waiting. If you don’t know what sideloading is, you can refer to our guide that will walk you through the process on your Nothing Phone 1. You can find the links to the update builds below.
