The Nothing Phone 1 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. It will receive three years of Android upgrades and four years of security updates. Nothing Phone 1 will run a custom Android version called Nothing OS to provide a clean, faster, and ad-free experience with 40-percent lesser pre-installed applications.

“Staying true to Nothing’s founding mission, Nothing OS is built on an open and seamless ecosystem that will effortlessly connect and integrate Nothing products and products from other world-leading brands,” states Nothing in a blog post.

“Nothing OS captures the best features of pure Android, distilling the operating system to just the essentials, where every byte has a purpose. A coherent interface, the hardware seamlessly integrates with software through bespoke fonts, colors, graphical elements, and sounds,” the company added.

Starting April, Nothing OS launcher will be available to download on select Android smartphones. Nothing Phone 1 is expected to follow the design principles of Nothing Ear 1 with a similar transparent design. More details about the Nothing Phone 1 will be available in the coming months.
