Nothing in the OS 3.0 hinted at new features

Pei showcased the new lock screen customisation feature with a few photographs in a post on X, which was once Twitter. The Nothing, Co-Founder, apologised to the team for the leak in advance, but she was overly thrilled as she posted the photos. The post is part of a series of oddball social media posts that Pei has been making to exciting new features and products. Notably, he changed his X name to "Carl Bhai" before the release of the Nothing Phone 2a.

One of the photos in the post featured three distinct lock screen views, each with a different level of personalisation. In the first, the fast access buttons at the bottom and the time, day, and date are displayed on the default lock screen. However, the second view had a "Clock + Widget" option with Nothing OS 3.0. The company's upcoming significant UI update, Nothing OS 3.0, is anticipated to be unveiled alongside the Nothing Phone 2a Community Edition. Carl Pei released glimpses of the essential operating system update before its official release. Carl uploaded an image that clarifies that the firm is redesigning the lock screen interface by incorporating additional features. Three lock screen options are available: Expanded Widget Area, Clock+Widgets, and Default.

Three widgets are included in this customisation: the date, the weather, and a shortcut for fast action. The clock on this screen is displayed using the dot matrix typeface by Nothing. "Expanded Widget Area," the second customisation option, will probably provide additional information on the lock screen. A sizable analog clock took over the clock's location in the previous two lock screens, along with a day and date tile in the posted image. In addition, contacts, weather, and quick action widgets are included with this option.





The clock+widget style displays the time in a dotted typeface with a weather widget, contact widget, and shortcut for fast action. The default style only shows the clock, date, and day. Conversely, the extended widget area is a larger-tiled variant of the clock+widget type design. In addition, he provided some technical details on the following OS interactive dot animations that could be utilised in the Quick Settings panel. The new dot animation is visually beautiful and interactive thanks to its three layers—the input image layer, the live interaction layer, and the final output layer.

Pei also referred to a Dot Animation function in another post. Three layers make up this functionality, which seems to be for images: the input image, the layer for live interaction, and the final output. The CEO withheld information about the feature's use case and operation. In the message, he also mentioned the release date of Nothing OS 3.0, saying, "Will stop now to leave some magic for the announcement in September."
