The first beta version of Nothing OS 1.5 for Phone (1), which runs on Android 13, is an open beta build, though, so only those who signed up for the open beta program can access it. While some were told to hold off a bit longer, those who were eligible to update their Nothing Phone (1) to Android 13 have already received an email verifying the same. Here is a step-by-step instruction on how to sign up for the Nothing OS 1.5 open beta program if you haven’t already.
Registration for Android 13-based Nothing OS 1.5 Open Beta
Find the registration form’s link below, then register for the Nothing OS 1.5 beta. In order to continue, you must complete the form and input the IMEI of your Nothing Phone (1). You must also accept the terms and conditions.
The company advises users to perform a complete backup of their Phone (1)’s data because it is an open beta build of the OS before installing the update. Please remember that because this software is currently under beta testing, it may have unknown bugs that cause system crashes and other problems.
You can find the Nothing OS 1.5 beta OTA update once you’ve received the confirmation email by going to Software Update on your phone (1). Just keep updating while installing the stable updates.
Features of Nothing OS 1.5
With the launch of the Nothing OS 1.5 beta, which is based on Android 13, the Nothing Phone (1) has gotten a lot of changes. The speed at which apps load has been increased by 50%, background memory has been increased to reduce load times for frequently used apps, and a “self-repair” option has been added to the phone to clear out the useless cache and out-of-date system dumps.
A number of Android 13 features have also been added to the phone, including a photo picker, granular media controls, notification control, a QR code scanner in the notification panel, per-app language settings, and a clipboard preview.
The phone also includes a specially created Weather app, a new media and volume control UI, and Live Captions. A new user interface for light notifications and integration with the Google game dashboard have both enhanced the Game Mode.
