Nothing OS 3.0 New Lock Screen Options

One of the standout features of Nothing OS 3.0 is the ability to choose from multiple lock screen options. The default lock screen will display only the time, date, and day. However, there will be two new customizable options available:

Another exciting feature hinted at by Pei is the “Interactive Dot Animation.” While details are limited, an image shared by Pei suggests it will have three layers: input image, live interaction, and final output. This implies that the animations will respond dynamically to user interactions.

The update will also bring a revamped native gallery app and a dedicated community app, enhancing the overall user experience.
