  • Nothing has pushed out a new update for the Phone 2.
  • The update adds the ability to apply the Nothing Icon Pack solely to the home screen.
  • The April Android security patch is also included with the update.

The Nothing Phone 2a has been getting plenty of attention since its launch, receiving three updates within the same month. While it’s nice to see the company give its latest phone the support it deserves, it’s not surprising that some Phone 2 owners have been feeling a little left out. The brand is now rolling out an update for the Phone 2, but it appears the update is leaving users wanting more.

On X (formerly Twitter), Nothing announced it has started to release Nothing OS 2.5.3 for the Phone 2. The update makes a few performance improvements, adds a new option, and delivers Android’s April security patch. You can see the full changelog below.

  • Added option to apply Nothing Icon Pack solely to the home screen, for better accessibility in the App Drawer.
  • Improved icon organization on the Home Screen by enabling users to scroll through pages while holding app icons.
  • Resolved a connectivity issue with car Bluetooth media players.
  • Optimized animations in certain scenarios for smoother transitions.
  • Updated Android Security Patch to April 2024.
  • Improved system stability to enhance overall performance.

The London-based firm says the update will be rolling out this week. So owners should see the update arrive on their device soon.

Despite the announcement, it appears the community isn’t quite satisfied. Some commenters are pointing out that this update doesn’t address camera quality issues, fix HDR controls, or give the Phone 2 features that the Phone 2a has like ring mode tile or recorder widget.
