The OnePlus Nord is the brand’s first-ever mid-range smartphone. The handset debuted with OxygenOs 10.5 based on Android 10. Despite being a new phone, the company started releasing OxygenOS 11 (Android 11) beta builds for this device only in early January 2021. Now, almost two months later, the smartphone has finally begun to receive the stable update.
