  • Nothing has revealed that a Phone 1 Android 13 beta program will launch.
  • This program is only set to kick off by the end of the year.

Nothing confirmed to Android Authority this week that the Phone 1 was only getting Android 13 in the first half of 2023. This means Phone 1 owners are in for a long wait ahead of the stable release.

Now, company founder Carl Pei has tweeted that a beta program is coming to the Phone 1 ahead of the stable update (h/t: Phandroid). Unfortunately for Nothing fans who want to test Android 13, the beta version is only targeted for a release “by the end of the year.”
