OnePlus’ budget Nord phones will only get a single major Android update


Late last month OnePlus took the wraps off its most affordable smartphones – the Nord N10 5G and Nord N100. The smartphones keep up with OnePlus’ longstanding reputation as a brand that offers high-end user experience at pocket-friendly prices. Another reputation Oneplus has built over the years is pushing timely updates to its smartphones including major updates.OnePlus Nord N10

The two affordable Nord pnes won’t be an exception. One Plus has confirmed that the two models will get updated to Android 11. However, the models will only get just one major Android update in their lifespan. Thus, the models won’t get updates beyond Android 11 as the phones ship with Android 10. This doesn’t mean they won’t get the regular security updates, though, as OnePlus hinted that the models will get two years of security updates. OnePlus did not mention if the updates will be monthly or quarterly.

A statement by a OnePlus spokesperson confirmed this to Android Central

. “The Nord N10 5G and N100 will receive one major Android update and a total of two years of security updates. The plan for these two devices aligns with industry standards for smartphones in more affordable price ranges. As always, we will continue listening to feedback from our users and looking for ways to improve the software experience for all OnePlus devices”.

We should point out that this may come as a disappointing news considering that the phones were announced with Android 10 at a time Android 11 had started rolling out. Moreso, the OnePlus 8T which were launched after the Nord N10 5G and N100 came with OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 out of the box.
