OnePlus Nord is receiving OxygenOS 10.5.9 update in India that brings the October security patch with it along with some new features. OnePlus has announced that the new update is being rolled out to Indian and Global users of the OnePlus Nord while users in Europe will get it in the coming weeks.
According to a post on the OnePlus Forums, the OxygenOS 10.5.9 update is being pushed out in batches with more users receiving it in the next few days. The changelog reveals that the new update brings the October Android security patch along with changes to the Game Space app.
The new update adds a gaming tools box for Fnatic mode and allows users to choose the notification style when gaming. A quick reply feature has also been added for WhatsApp and INS that can be accessed by swiping down from either the left or right corners when the gaming mode is engaged. Additionally, the update adds the mis-touch prevention feature to the Game Space app.
OxygenOS 10.5.9 also improves Nord’s system stability, Bluetooth connection stability and network stability as well. In India, users are receiving the OxygenOS 10.5.9.AC01DA update while global users get AC01AA version update.
If you haven’t received the update, there is a way to manually check for the system update. For that, users need to go to the Settings menu and scroll down to the System option. Tap on System Updates and the phone will start checking for the latest available firmware. If you haven’t received the update yet, you will receive it in the coming days as it is an incremental update and is being seeded in batches.
Recently, many OnePlus Nord users raised complains about its erratic behaviour that led to factory reset and data loss. At the time, OnePlus had issued a notice stating that it was working on an update to fix this issue, however, it isn’t known if the OxygenOS 10.5.9 fixes that bug which caused the phones to go in the recovery mode.
OnePlus Nord was launched on July 21 in India and has been selling like hotcakes ever since. The company also announced the Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 earlier this week for the US and European regions, however, it seems like the two phones will be skipping other regions including India and China, at least for the time being.
OnePlus Nord features a 6.44-inch Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) resolution display that uses an AMOLED panel with a dual punch-hole cutout that gives it a 20:9 aspect ratio. The screen has a 90Hz high refresh rate and is topped with a layer of Gorilla Glass 5 for added protection.
