Nothing Phone (2) received a rounded glass back panel, which makes it easier to handle. The Glyph interface has also received an update and now consists of 11 segmented LED strips with 33 lighting zones. It offers new use cases for notifications such as volume controls and timer indicators. The user can assign specific applications to the top left LED for Essential Glyph notifications, and it will remain lit until the notification from the notifications menu is removed.
