How to turn off the Glyph lights on the Nothing Phone (2)

The Nothing Phone (2) has finally been announced and has an improved Glyph interface compared to its predecessor.

The Nothing Phone (2) is available in the UK, America and Europe. The base model – which features 8GB RAM and 128GB storage – can be found for £579/$599/€679. 

It comes with many new features compared to its predecessor, arguably the most notable being the improved Glyph interface. The Glyph interface is essentially a range of LEDs embedded into the transparent rear of the device and comes with a variety of functions. 

It can be used as a fill light for the camera in low-light environments and can flash with customised lights when you are called or sent a notification. It can even display a countdown timer and deliver app status updates from apps like Uber and Deliveroo.
