Nothing OS 3.0 new features teased

Posting the pictures, the co-founder of Nothing said, “Apologies in advance to the team for the leak… but I’m so excited!” This post follows a series of quirky social media posts Pei has created to generate excitement for products and features.

In the post, one of the images showed three different views of the lock screen, each with unique customizations. The first featured a default lock screen with a clock, day and date, and quick access buttons at the bottom. However, the second view, which will be available with Nothing OS 3.0, showed a “Clock + Widget” option.

This customization appears with three widgets — the weather, a shortcut for quick action, and the date. The clock is displayed on this screen in Nothing’s dot matrix font. The second customization option is called “Extended Widget Area” and will display additional information on the lock screen. In the image shared, a large analog clock and day and date tiles occupy the space given to the clock in the previous two lock screens. This choice also features widgets for quick actions, weather, and contacts.
