Nothing Phone (2) Gets Nothing OS 2.5.6 Software Update

Nothing has rolled out a new software update for the Nothing Phone (2) that was launched back in July 2023. The new Nothing OS 2.5.6 software update which weighs just about 115MB in size comes with new features, improvements, bug fixes as well as Android security patch for June 2024. It could be recalled that the phone came running on Nothing OS 2.0 out of the box, which is based on Android 13.

It is important to note that the firmware rollouts are usually staggered. This means that the software updates are pushed to a limited number of users randomly. While some may be getting the update, it could take days for other to receive it. This approach according to the company will allows them to monitor for any issues and ensure a smooth and stable deployment.
