OnePlus has released the OxygenOS 188.8.131.52 update for the OnePlus Nord after it temporarily paused the rollout previously due to performance issues. OnePlus started pushing out the Android 11 based OxygenOS 11 update for users of the OnePlus Nord earlier this month. However, many users reported battery issues, app lock and more functionality based bugs and the update was pulled last week.
OnePlus has now announced that it is rolling-out an OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 hotfix update for the Nord. The new update fixes issues, improves the overall system stability and brings the Android 11 features to the Nord. OnePlus Nord users in India will receive the OxygenOS 220.127.116.11.AC01DA update while the global users will receive 18.104.22.168.AC01AA and 22.214.171.124.AC01BA for users in Europe.
The new OxygenOS 126.96.36.199 update brings a new design to the Nord with different always-on display styles, new Shelf UI, Story feature in the Gallery and more optimizations to improve the imaging previews. The update also adds some options to the Dark mode and a dedicated button in the quick settings menu.
OnePlus recommends that the battery levels on the Nord should be above 30% with a minimum of 3GB storage space required to install the update.
The OnePlus Nord is one of the best-selling smartphones in the sub-Rs 30,000 price segment after its debut in 2020. Earlier this month, the OnePlus Nord 2 was leaked, giving us a glimpse of what to expect from the successor of the Nord.
The OnePlus Nord 2 reportedly is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor that was launched in January. Having said that, we are still months away from the launch of the purported OnePlus Nord 2 and there’s a lot that could potentially change between now and when the phone officially launches.
