One of the two latest entries to the OnePlus' new budget lineup, the Nord N100, has just received its first Oxygen OS update to version 10.5.1. It looks like it just consists of a few last-minute fixes for some issues that may have popped up in a late testing phase ahead of the launch, as there isn't a new security patch or even Android 11.
As expected, OnePlus has just announced the latest products in its affordable Nord smartphone range. The recently leaked Nord N10 5G comes in at slightly cheaper than the original Nord (£329 vs £379 in the UK), while the N100 costs substantially less at £179. They'll be available in Europe next month, but there's no concrete information on when they'll be arriving in the US.
The OnePlus Nord is now being updated to OxygenOS 10.5.9, bringing some new features to Game Space, the October security patch, and plenty of bug fixes for things like Bluetooth and networking. Check out the full changelog from OnePlus below:
Anyone using a non-Pixel device like a OnePlus phone and Google Photos in conjunction probably knows that this can lead to some annoying issues. When you delete a photo in the camera right after taking it, it's possible that Google still uploads it, making you repeat the deletion process in Photos. The solution is simple on recent OnePlus phones: Just disable the pre-installed Gallery. The camera will then preview your shots right in Google Photos, and the app will respect deleted images right away.
Even when the limelight is meant to be on the OnePlus 8T today, the company has found a way to keep its mid-ranger Nord phone exciting — by giving it a new color. In addition to the glossy Gray Onyx and Blue Marble looks, we now have a darker, edgier Gray Ash matte finish coming to current Nord markets as soon as tomorrow.
OnePlus is announcing the OnePlus 8T today, and as always, the occasion is accompanied by an online launch event. In contrast to the bug-ridden Nord AR launch, it looks like it will be a classic YouTube livestream.
The U.S. market for smartphones has always tilted just a tad more expensive — in any given series of releases, the country will typically receive a higher-spec model. This may not necessarily be the case with OnePlus as it is reportedly targeting America for a modified version of the Nord, its first mid-ranger in a long time. Now, we're getting word of another Nord variant and a date to watch for.
The Nord marked OnePlus’s reentry into the budget space when it went official two months back. In that short span, the phone has already received quite a few updates, mainly to iron out any remaining initial issues. With the latest OxygenOS build, the Nord is getting the newest (technically) September security update along with a new option for controlling notifications.
