OnePlus Nord has already received a couple of OTA updates; Support for OnePlus Buds and camera improvements in tow, 4G+5G dual SIM support to come later
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.
