OnePlus Nord(₹ 27978 at Tatacliq) (review) has started receiving the May 2021 Android security patch in India as part of the OxygenOS 126.96.36.199 update. Apart from the security patch, the update brings in a number of bug fixes related to the camera, network, system, and file manager.
As always, the update will be pushed in a phased manner and not all users will get it at the same time. Different builds for India, Europe, and Global regions have version number 188.8.131.52.AC01DA, 184.108.40.206.AC01BA, and 220.127.116.11.AC01AA, respectively.
The new update fixes a lot of camera issues that Nord users have been complaining about. These include frame drops in captured videos, camera unresponsiveness when opened via contact app, and the abnormal preview display issue in Nightscape Tripod mode.
The update also improves Wi-Fi speeds and fixes abnormal display issues while copying files to OTG storage.
Here’s the detailed Changelog:
If you are a OnePlus Nord user, you can manually check for updates from Settings >> System >> System updates.
OnePlus assures of at least two years of regular security updates, which is to say that Nord should keep getting these patches for at least another year or so. Apart from Nord, the OnePlus 9 series and OnePlus 8 series phones have already received the May Android Security patch on May 10 and May 26, respectively. Older OnePlus devices are yet to receive the update.
