Carl Pei’s Nothing, back in July, made its debut in the smartphone segment with the Nothing Phone (1). Earlier this week, a report by Android Authority revealed that Nothing Phone (1) Android 13 update will be released in 2023 which was a bit surprising since people expected the new brand to be aggressive with Android updates. Now, Carl has also confirmed that the Nothing Phone (1) will indeed get the Android 13 stable update in early 2023.
In addition to revealing the timeline for the Nothing Phone (1) Android 13 stable release, Carl also revealed that the company plans to roll out Android 13-based Nothing OS beta update for the Nothing Phone (1) by the end of the year. Take a look at Carl Pei’s tweets below.
While we are working around the clock, we won't rush on updates at the expense of user experience. This also applies to Nothing OS based on Android 13 where we aim to ship a beta version by the end of the year, with a full release in early 2023.

Carl also revealed that Nothing is looking to create some fun and interesting software experiences with the Nothing OS. To recall, the Nothing Phone (1) comes pre-loaded with Nothing OS 1.0 which is very close to stock Android. It will be interesting to see the additions that the upcoming version of Nothing OS will bring with it.
Nothing recently hiked the prices of the Nothing Phone (1) in India citing currency exchange rate fluctuations and rising component costs. As a result, the Nothing Phone (1) is now Rs 1000 costlier compared to the launch price in the country. This means that one needs to spend Rs 33,999 for buying the base variant of the Nothing Phone (1) in India.
