Nothing Phone (2) update brings April 2024 security patch, improved Bluetooth connectivity

Nothing OS 2.5.3 Update Details

Via x (formerly Twitter), didn't post anything about the rollout of Nothing OS 2.5.3 for the Phone 2. The update, which is 64.58 MB in size, brings some performance enhancements, introduces a new feature, and includes the April security patch for Android. Here is the changelog:

Nothing Phone 2 changelog
  • The option to apply the Nothing icon pack exclusively to the home screen was introduced, making the app drawer easier to access.
  • Enhanced icon arrangement on the home screen, allowing users to scroll through pages by holding app icons.
  • Fixed problem connecting to car Bluetooth media player.
  • Streamlined animations in specific situations for smooth transitions.
  • Android security patches updated to April 2024.
  • Enhanced system stability to improve overall performance.

According to reports, it seems that many users are not excited about the new update. While the last update in late January fixed some issues, users still wanted more improvements, especially with camera quality and overall performance.

Unfortunately, this new update does not appear to fix these problems. Some of the top requests from users in the comments were for features like the Ring Mode tile and the Recorder widget, both of which have already been added to Nothing Phone (2A).
