OnePlus Nord is receiving an Android 11-based OxygenOS 220.127.116.11 update, the company has announced through a forum post. The update brings March 2021 Android security patch to the phone and fixes several issues. The company says that the incremental, over-the-air (OTA) update is being rolled out to OnePlus Nord users in India, Europe, and other global markets. OnePlus previously paused the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 update on OnePlus Nord because some users started facing app crashes and other issues. OxygenOS 18.104.22.168 was released as a hotfix to address those issues. The newest OxygenOS 22.214.171.124 fixes further problems that weren’t resolved by OxygenOS 126.96.36.199.
The OxygenOS 188.8.131.52 update was rolled out because the OnePlus Nord Android 11 OS update released earlier this month was paused after users complained about app crashes, notification issues, and battery drain issues after updating their phones. The OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 itself was the hotfix for the first Android 11 update for OnePlus Nord, and it had the same changelog as the original one.
The first Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 update for OnePlus Nord and its hotfix OxygenOS 220.127.116.11 brought system improvements, ambient display tweaks, improved Dark Mode, shelf, and gallery. The handset also got new UI and optimizations to third-party app stability. It also brought a shortcut key in quick settings for enabling Dark Mode, an auto turn-on feature with a customizable time range, and a weather widget with improved animations.
The OnePlus Nord OxygenOS 18.104.22.168 update also addresses some issues with the Calculator app that were causing the results and the button sizes to display abnormally. The update carries OxygenOS 22.214.171.124.AC01DA build number in India, while its European build is arriving as OxygenOS 126.96.36.199.AC01BA and the global release are coming as OxygenOS 188.8.131.52.AC01AA.
Like OnePlus’s previous updates, the latest one for the OnePlus Nord smartphone will initially reach a few users. It will be rolled out to a broader base of users after OnePlus ensures no critical bugs in the update. If you haven’t received a notification to update your phone, you can check by heading to Settings > System > System updates.
