  • Nothing CEO tweeted photos about updates coming to Nothing OS, but the phone in the images featured a fourth button.
  • This fourth button has never been seen on a Nothing Phone before, hinting that it could be the upcoming Nothing Phone 3.
  • Apple’s iPhone 16 series is also rumored to come with a new “Action” button.

It’s been almost a year since Nothing launched the Nothing Phone 2, so naturally, we are expecting news about the Nothing Phone 3 soon. Recently, Nothing CEO Carl Pei tweeted a series of photos showcasing updates to the Nothing OS user interface. While the software changes were interesting in their own right, the folks over at BGR were quick to spot that the phone featured in Pei’s photos could very well be the Nothing Phone 3.

The Phone 1, Phone 2, and the more recent Phone 2a all sport three buttons — two volume rockers on the left side and a power button on the right. However, the phone in Pei’s photos clearly has an extra button on the right side, positioned just below the power button.
