Google’s annual developer conference, Google I/O, is just around the corner on May 10, and tech enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the announcement of Android 14’s upcoming features and beta program. As a way to ensure a smooth transition and quick integration of the new features, Google has issued early access invitations to mobile phone manufacturers.
Recently, Nothing, a new player in the smartphone market, announced that its Nothing Phone (1) will be among the first to receive the Android 14 Beta 1 update, marking a significant milestone for the company. Despite being a mid-range smartphone with Snapdragon 778G+ SoC, the Phone (1) will have the opportunity to take advantage of Google’s latest and greatest innovations. This will be the second significant software update for the Nothing Phone (1), which launched with Android 12 last year.
It will be interesting to see how quickly Nothing can develop a stable version of Android 14 by autumn. However, given how closely Nothing OS resembles stock Android, the development process may not take as long as one would expect.
