A new beta update has been released for Nothing OS 1.5, which brings a host of improvements.
The latest Nothing OS 1.5 update based on Android 13 seems to be rolling out early. Carl Pei, founder and CEO of Nothing, took to Twitter to share the news, delivering four days ahead of schedule. While there are a lot of changes in the version, perhaps the biggest one is that for this version all international firmwares are available It is now integrated. If you’re interested, and you’re in the beta program, you should start seeing the Earth update on your phone soon, as it’s only 127MB in size.
