As per usual, this is a staged rollout. In other words, it is rolling out in stages, but everyone should get it within a week or so. There is a chance this update will get pulled if major issues pop up, though, of course.
This OnePlus Nord update improves the phone’s camera, and its battery life
In any case, this OnePlus Nord update is highly focused on camera and battery life improvements. It improves image clarity for the front-facing camera in low light.
On top of that, it improves image clarity of the phone’s macro camera, says OnePlus. General power consumption has been improved, and the same goes for the charging experience.
Several additional entries into the changelog can be spotted on the company’s website. OnePlus says that it improved the volume adjustment interface with this update as well.
The system reboot issue when free-form is enabled has also been fixed. The last entry has to do with the OnePlus Notes app. The issue of this app always running in the background has been fixed.
For those of you who are wondering, this update is marked as ‘OxygenOS 10.5.5’. It is rolling out to all variants of the OnePlus Nord, Global, EU, and India variants.
The update is rolling out over the air. If you do have any issues with it, you can report it to the company. This is how you can do that if you stumble upon issues.
The ‘Nord’ is the newest smartphone from the company
The OnePlus Nord is the company’s newest smartphone. It is the second mid-range phone OnePlus ever announced, as it’s a spiritual successor to the OnePlus X.
OnePlus did not release a mid-range smartphone for a long time, but it doesn’t plan to stop with the ‘Nord’. Several additional devices are rumored to arrive this year, aside from the OnePlus 8T series.
OnePlus seems to be looking to expand its smartphone portfolio quite a bit. The company had a tendency to release four devices per year for several years now, but that will change by the end of 2020.
The OnePlus Nord will likely stay the most powerful mid-range smartphone OnePlus will release this year, though. Other rumored devices are inferior to the Nord, at least based on the rumors / leaks we’ve seen thus far.
