OnePlus Nord N10 updated to OxygenOS 10.5.9

OnePlus is diversifying its lineup with its budget-focused Nord series, currently comprised of the original Nord, the Nord N10, and the Nord N100. While we're still annoyed that the latter will only get Android 11 and nothing more, the Nord N10 has just received an update to OxygenOS 10.5.9.

LineageOS 17.1 adds support for OnePlus Nord, 2013 Nexus 7, and more

LineageOS 17.1 adds support for OnePlus Nord, 2013 Nexus 7, and more

LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM around, and for good reason. It has extended the life of many phones and tablets that would have otherwise been abandoned, and even for phones still receiving software updates from the original manufacturer, Lineage can sometimes work better than the stock software. Since our last roundup, LineageOS 17.1 has arrived on eight more devices, including the OnePlus Nord and 2013 Google Nexus 7.

OnePlus Nord jumps on the Android 11 bandwagon with its first Open Beta

OnePlus Nord jumps on the Android 11 bandwagon with its first Open Beta

As the OnePlus 7/7T’s Android 11 update hangs in the air, only two OnePlus phones — the 8 and 8T — have so far received their stable builds. Last week, the company confirmed that more of its older and budget offerings would soon be updated with the latest OxygenOS version, and it sure seems that it's keeping its word. It has finally released the beta version of OxygenOS 11 to the Nord, bringing everything that’s new about the software skin to the budget champ.

OnePlus 7/7T series and Nord are next in line for OxygenOS 11

OnePlus used to be known for speedy Android updates, but those days have long since passed. While Samsung has already started updating most of its recent flagships to Android 11, the same update has only arrived on two OnePlus phones (the 8 and 8T). OnePlus has now shared a status report on the OxygenOS 11 rollout, providing a rough timeline for the months ahead.

OnePlus Nord gets December security patches in latest update

OnePlus Nord gets December security patches in latest update

OnePlus updates most of its phones on a bi-monthly schedule, but even in months where a certain model does receive security patches, the OTA usually comes in a month (or more) after Google publicized the fixes. Sure enough, the OnePlus Nord is now receiving its December 2020 security patches with only a few days left before January.

I am very happy that budget smartphones finally, really don't suck

I am very happy that budget smartphones finally, really don't suck

We learned a lot in 2020. About face coverings, about entertaining ourselves in our own homes, about staycations, and probably about making bread — or at least personally net carbohydrate profiteering off of someone who did. But in the realm of smartphones, one trend markedly stood out amidst a global economy (and frankly, just a globe) in turmoil: good, relatively inexpensive phones.

The OnePlus Nord, Galaxy S20 FE, and Google Pixel 4a shine brightest in the collective "value" Android smartphone cosmos right now here in the West, being from the three names most synonymous with the tech enthusiast circle in the handset space.

The OnePlus Nord N100 just received its first pre-launch software update

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.

OnePlus expands Nord lineup with N10 5G and N100 (Updated)

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.
