The latest update has also been received by our review unit. The latest software update version 1.1.0 is bringing several new features, including the experimental Tesla control feature.

The update received on the Nothing Phone 1 smartphone by our review unit mentions the changelog getting new features, including the Tesla control feature, the experimental NFT gallery widget and an optional search bar on the home screen.

The latest software update also brings camera improvements to the Nothing Phone 1 smartphone. It includes the availability of the Glyph fill light in the portrait mode of the camera. It also brings improved quality, dynamic range and reduced noise while capturing photos in a low-light environment. Moreover, improvements in the picture clarity and colour consistency across the main and ultra-wide camera sensors of the Nothing Phone 1 smartphone are also included in the changelog.

Next comes the bug fixation and performance optimisations with the latest software update of the Nothing Phone 1.

Also, the battery life of the Nothing Phone 1 has been optimised, especially when the handset remains on standby.

The reliability of the Glyph interface of the smartphone along with the face unlock performance has also been improved with this update. There are other minor bug fixes as well that have not been mentioned in the changelog.
