OnePlus no longer exclusively sells phones with flagship processors; budget models are also on the menu now. Its most affordable 5G phone, the Nord N10 5G, is receiving a new OxygenOS update. There's not too much on offer, but it does include the latest security patch.
Two months after the original European launch, OnePlus has officially brought the N10 5G to the US at $300. But this new move downmarket with the Nord brand still doesn't live up to the smash-hit original. Bugs with the touchscreen, connectivity, and performance have been ironed out since our original review, but the phone still doesn't quite earn our recommendation given the lackluster update policy and competition — even with the benefits of 5G.
OnePlus has just announced the rollout of OxygenOS 10.5.8 for the Nord N10 5G. This latest update doesn't deliver any specifically named features, but it does have improvements to power consumption, system stability, the camera, and connection stability, plus the currently latest December 2020 security patches.
