UK-based consumer technology start-up Nothing on Friday announced that it has started rolling out the Nothing OS 1.1.5 software update for its Nothing Phone (1). The update will enable 5G support for Reliance Jio True 5G. Nothing said, the update is rolled out in phases and will be concluded before October 24.
With the update, Nothing Phone (1) would be among the first smartphones to work with Reliance Jio’s standalone 5G network.

Step 1: Go to Settings
