OnePlus Nord's second Android 11 Open Beta arrives with a slew of bug fixes

OnePlus launched the first Android 11-based Open Beta for the Nord at the beginning of the year, and now the company is back with the second beta. It's bringing along a slew of welcome bug fixes and interface optimizations, but as far as we can tell, there weren't any deal-breaking issues in the first Open Beta that needed fixing. Here's to hoping it'll remain that way in the second release.

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.

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.

Google adds 26 handsets to its ARCore support list, including Fold2, S20FE, and OnePlus Nord

Google's ARCore SDK is designed to make it easier to develop augmented reality apps.
