Nothing Phone (2a) Update: Nothing OS 2.5.6 New Features & Fixes

Nothing has released a new update for the Phone (2a) called Nothing OS 2.5.6. This new update is 115MB in size and includes new features, camera enhancements, and several bug fixes.

New Features

A “Hide Navigation Bar” feature has been added for a more immersive user experience. This can be accessed via “Settings > System > Gestures > Navigation mode > Gesture navigation settings > Hide navigation bar”. Additionally, long-pressing a widget now reveals more options, making it more consistent with other home screen actions. There is also a new option to allow or disable vibrations for other calls and notifications during an ongoing call.


The Google security patch has been updated to May 2024, and the camera's auto HDR detection logic has been optimized.

Bug Fixes

The update resolves certain compatibility issues with Android Auto. It also addresses the problem where the screen does not automatically turn on after using the Power Button to turn it off during an incoming call. Some issues with the ChatGPT widget have been fixed, and the problem where the notification panel narrows when receiving certain notifications has been resolved. Overall system stability has been optimized as well.

The update is being rolled out globally. If you haven’t received the OTA notification yet, you can manually check for it by going to Settings > System > System Update.
