Carl Pei's Nothing unveiled its first smartphone last month, dubbed Nothing Phone (1). It runs Android 12-based Nothing OS out of the box, which is a near-stock version of Android. 

And if you thought that would mean the stable Android 13 would arrive on the Phone (1) this year, then you are in for some disappointment.

Nothing has said the Android 13 update for the Phone (1) will only arrive in the first half of 2023, meaning any time between January and June. 

However, the company will continue to release software updates for the Phone (1) to improve the user experience.

"We are always working hard to improve the Phone 1 user experience. To ensure this, operating system updates will be made available for regular download," said Nothing.

"In regards to Android 13, this will be launching for Phone 1 users in the first half of 2023. Before releasing, we want to fine tune the software upgrade with Nothing’s hardware," Nothing added.

"We will be sure to keep you updated with further information," the company further added.

The Nothing Phone (1) comes with the promise of four years of bi-monthly security patches and three years of Android version updates.
