Nothing, the technology business known for its one-of-a-kind and original products, is set to provide Android enthusiasts with an alternative to Google’s Pixel phone. Although Nothing now only sells one smartphone, the firm aims to build a reputation for itself in the Android market.
The first beta version of Android 14 was recently released on Pixel phones, and Nothing has stated that the first beta version of the OS will soon be available for its smartphones as well. The company revealed in a press release that its product team would have early access to the forthcoming Android 14 Beta 1 upgrade to enable smooth and seamless integration with Nothing OS for a better user experience.
Although the exact date for the release of Android 14 Beta 1 on the Nothing Phone 1 has yet to be announced, the brand is expected to provide more information soon. The beta is expected to be launched during Google I/O 2023, which is scheduled for next month.
The Nothing Phone 1 is the first device outside Google’s Pixel line to be confirmed for Beta 1 availability. Android 14 Beta 1 includes new features such as a revamped back arrow for gesture navigation, location-based loyalty card suggestions, updated PIN animations, and more. However, it is not guaranteed that all of these features will be available on the Nothing Phone 1, as the company has its Nothing OS software for which the update will be tailored.
Google I/O 2023, which will take place on May 10th, is expected to deliver exciting news and updates on Android 14 and other Google products. Manufacturers often disclose beta versions of the latest Android version at the event, and we expect more brands to make announcements before or during the expo.
