Currently under the beta, we are actually testing the OS out for a future review
Two days ago, Nothing, the startup ran by former founder of OnePlus, Carl Pei, has announced that the beta version of its Launcher for the upcoming Nothing Phone, is now available on Android phones running Android 11.
This was one of the highlights of the Nothing Phone 1 launch event last March, with a focus on a minimalist design and an alternate to iOS and Android. Previously, it was only available to Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra.
We actually have the launcher installed. The phone we’ve used is the TCL 10 5G which we actually reviewed before. Soon, expect a video regarding the new startup. When installing the launcher for the first time, a handy quick start-up guide will help you get through the launcher conveniently. In addition to the launcher itself, the “bonus content” section allows you to download three wallpapers and three ringtones, all of which are accessed through Dropbox.
You can send your experience to Nothing by joining their Discord, which is available in the “About” section of the launcher. It features Google’s built-in widgets and two NothingOS exclusive widgets. These are the clocks (both analog and digital) and weather.
The phone itself, the Nothing Phone 1, would launch sometime this August in select markets and will have 7 years’ worth of updates and a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.
