The consumer tech giant said it will release the Android 14 Developer Preview for the Nothing Phone (1) in the coming weeks. And Nothing users are finally on the spot to test the ultimate Android version.
Furthermore, the information suggests that this edition best suits developers and some advanced users. Because this Android 14 build is still in the early development stage, and some features might be missing or not working.
The company noted several major issues with the first Android 14 beta on the Nothing Phone (1), including fingerprints, face unlock, Glyph features, battery sharing, no pre-installed Nothing Weather and Nothing X apps, and more. The complete list of known issues is as follows:
