Nothing has rolled out a new OTA update Nothing OS 2.0.2a for Nothing Phone (2). This update will be dedicated to camera enhancements for previous changes. This is the first time the company has added ‘a’ alphabet to the software version at the last.
The update has a new changelog at the top, and others are the same as the previous software update, the Nothing OS 2.0.2 changelog. The update size for this update is 58.02 MB. We can assume that this is an hotfix update.
This change will be seen in indoor environments photos with improved clarity of faces and optimized highlight levels. A new UI element is added to the camera app when HDR is active. Now when you click in HDR, the highlight exposure is more optimized. The dual tones are now reduced when clicking photos in HDR. At last, the halo effect in portrait mode issue while shooting in HDR is fixed now.
This update is all about HDR optimization, as we can see in the changelogs. Other changes might be made in the background, as no other changes can be seen.
