The OnePlus Nord(₹ 27978 at Tatacliq) marks the company’s return to a price segment it departed many years ago, and fans couldn't be happier. With the phone having gone on sale only recently in India, buyers of the Nord can expect a software update or two already lined up. While our review unit of the Nord already received an update few weeks ago, OnePlus has just release OxygenOS 10.5.4 for the OnePlus Nord (Review) which enhances low light selfies and also improves the quality of images from the Macro camera.
While the main focus of the OxygenOS 10.5.4 happens to be improving the low light performance of the selfie and macro cameras, there are also a number of other improvements packed into this build. According to the changelog, this update includes improvements to the display experience, improved launch speed of the Gallery app, improving the quality of video calls and more. There are also a bumber of bug fixes, the most notable of which solves the issue of background music stopping when the front camera is started.
OnePlus has a long-standing track record of releasing their phones and then continuing to improve the software experience over time. Some have voiced concerns that OnePlus is basically shipping phones with incomplete software and then rapidly fixing issues with incessant updates. This is only partially true. OnePlus smartphones usually ship with very stable and reliable OS versions, with subsequent updates only tending to very minor issues. It could be argued that the OxygenOS team at OnePlus continues to test software even after a phone’s launch in order to continue improving it. In our visit to OnePlus’s camera lab in Taiwan, we learned that the company has a full-fledged lab that works all year round shooting, analysis and tweaking the camera algorithms. Similarly, the OxygenOS team continues to find ways to improve the OS experience, since the software is what helps OnePlus devices best others in its class. There are major parts of the OxygenOS for OnePlus Nord that are developed in India.
