With the update, users can also expect some refinements to the fingerprint recording and unlocking experience. Apart from this, there are some other bug fixes too, however, the changelog doesn’t mention them.

How to update?

If you are a Nothing Phone (1) user, you should have received the update notification. If not, you can manually check for the update and get your device updated by heading to Settings > System > System updates.

While the software-level bugs might get fixed with this update, the hardware-level issues including the green tint on the display, peeling off of the Glyph light strip, and others still stay. Although, the company has confirmed that this is only happening with the first batch of units and is offering free replacement with the units made in the second batch.

Despite some of the issues, the Nothing Phone (1) is quite popular in the Indian market. The founder Carl Pei revealed that the higher-end variant in White shade went out of stock within a second of its sale on Flipkart.

This shows how excited the customers are for the Nothing Phone (1), but the question is how long will this excitement last, as the mid-range market is getting even more competitive, thanks to the just-released Redmi K50i and the yet-to-launch Google Pixel 6a.
