OnePlus releases OxygenOS 11 beta for Nord
OnePlus Nord receives Android 11 based beta build
OnePlus Nord launched back in July 2020 starting at Rs 24,999
OnePlus has released the open beta build of the OxygenOS 11 for the OnePlus Nord. The company has managed to update the OnePlus 8 series to the latest OxygenOS 11 and it recently revealed the update plans for other devices as well. The final release build of the OxygenOS 11 will be released after issues and bugs are ironed out from the open beta stage.
Announcing the release through a post on its forums, OnePlus kicked off the OnePlus Nord OxygenOS 11 open beta for users to check out the software in its initial stage. “Please bear in mind that this is beta software and, as such, may be less stable than stable MP builds. If you are installing this build, we highly recommend you make a full system back-up before proceeding,” the post reads. MP builds are the final official builds released after beta testing.
The OxygenOS 11 open beta build brings Android 11 update to the OnePlus Nord along with a new visual design, always-on display, improved dark mode, revamped Shelf and more. Do not that anyone can install this build but if at any time you want to revert to the stable build, the process would wipe away all user data. So be very sure before installing this beta build on your OnePlus Nord.
