The OnePlus Nord is yet to start retailing in stores but has already received a couple of updates that improve camera functionality and bring the phone up to date with the latest Google Android security patches. Also, the Nord along with the OnePlus 8 series will be getting dual 4G+5G SIM support in a future OTA update.

OnePlus launched the upper mid-range Nord smartphone and the OnePlus Buds just earlier this week. While the device will go on sale from August 4, it has already received two software updates. These updates are incremental but still offer a few new features.

The first update landed a couple of days ago for the Indian variant of the Nord. The update, which is about 103 MB, arrived as OxygenOS 10.5.1.AC01DA with the June security patch and brings improvements to the camera experience (refer changelog in the screenshot below). There is currently an embargo on the Nord's camera samples, so it looks like this update irons out those rough edges before the reviews go live. The update should be available automatically via OTA but those who do have access to the device can snag the biits from here.

It looks like OnePlus is in no mood to rest as the Nord has received yet another incremental update today. OxygenOS 10.5.2 is now rolling out to Indian (AC01DA), North American (AC01AA), and European (AC01BA) units. This 143 MB update adds official support for the new OnePlus Buds, adds 90 Hz refresh rate support to Dailyhunt — a popular Indian news aggregation app, improves camera functionality, and updates the Android security patch to July 2020. The offline package can be downloaded from here.

Nord is currently available only to reviewers, but buyers should be getting these fixes as soon as they first turn on their devices. It may also be noted that both Nord and the OnePlus 8 series currently support dual -4G SIM cards or a single 5G SIM. OnePlus notes that dual 4G+5G SIM combination will be enabled in a future OTA update.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
