The company really seems to be going against the grain of the market, as major brands are already testing their customized versions of Android 13 — even with the public. Samsung, Xiaomi, and OnePlus are just a few of the companies that are already running tests after the stable launch of Google Pixel phones.
Android 13 is an update with discreet changes, especially when compared to the jump between Android 11 and 12, which saw major design changes with Material You, features for gamers, and other new features. Furthermore, Nothing claims to prefer performance and stability on NothingOS.
The Nothing Phone 1 launched in July with the Snapdragon 778G Plus, but its real highlight lies with the “transparent” look that, in previous tests, showed it might not be as durable as expected. For now, the company does not comment on its next steps in the market, but there is an expectation for a new wireless headset.
