Google released the Android 14 Beta 3 update yesterday, but only for Pixel smartphones. The company has added some new features to Android 14 with the latest beta release. On the other hand, Nothing has made the Android 14 beta available for its handsets as part of its Developer Preview program, giving users an early look at the experience. Meanwhile, the company is not only preparing to launch its much-anticipated Phone (2) next month but is also planning to introduce a significant upgrade to its operating system, Nothing OS 2.0, later this year.
Earlier, Carl Pei’s Nothing is all set to launch the successor of its first smartphone soon. The innovative technology company has confirmed that the Nothing Phone (2) will launch globally and in India next month. Additionally, the brand also revealed some key specifications of the upcoming Transparent device. The phone will come with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, a 4,700mAh battery, large 6.7-inch display, and the company will offer three years of major Android updates and four years of security patches.
Nothing OS 2.0:
Nothing Software creative director Mladen M. Hoyss explained the Nothing OS 2.0 skin in detail in an interview with XDA-Developers. With the upcoming Nothing OS 2.0, the company wants to “start almost from scratch” in terms of looks, as it has the “opportunity” and “momentum” to do so. Also, Nothing OS 2.0 will have “functional aesthetics.” It’s a data science term that deals with taking a lot of data and trying to visualize it and make it easy to digest.
Furthermore, Hoyss confirmed that the company wants users to be productive with the upcoming Nothing OS and aims to provide users with a seamless mix of productivity and entertainment within the Nothing ecosystem. Also, Nothing OS 2.0 will continue to be based on Android and will make it easier and more productive for end-users.
Furthermore, the company representative also says that it is clear that there is no “big promise” and that they want to make a “stable, beautiful product.” With the upcoming OS, the company aims to be a leader in performance and some improvements in Home screen customization. On the other hand, Hoyss does not provide much information about the rolling out of Nothing OS 2.0, but we can expect that the next OS may deliver in the summer.
