The Nothing Phone (1) will have up to four years of software support

The Nothing Telephone (1) just released two nights ago and very quickly the phone is already exhausted. On top of that, interested users should be notified while signing up and there is also no 8GB + 128GB variant available. But what about its software support?

On the device’s official Nothing tech website, it appears that software support for the Nothing Phone (1) only lasts four years. The four years include security patches that will be released every two months, according to Nothing. Additionally, Android updates will only last for up to three years, which is comparable to other brands such as Samsung.


Honestly, the software support is decent but still better than most Android manufacturers that shut down after a year. The Nothing Phone (1) also supports 5G connectivity but relies on regional availability and local carrier support. In Malaysia’s case, the company would have to go through Digital Nasional Berhad’s unique 5G wholesale network.

The Nothing Phone (1) is available in white and black and we don’t know when it will be available again in Malaysia. For full specs and features, you can check out our news coverage here and stay tuned for more tech news at
