OnePlus has begun rolling out the Android 12-based OxygenOS update for the Nord smartphone in India. According to the changelog, the firmware brings the latest April 2022 security patch, fixes for abnormal touch sounds and boot animation, and optimization for using "OK Google" with voice. The OTA update for European users is expected to come soon, as it will be released only after validation.
- OnePlus released the beta version of OxygenOS 12 for Nord not so long ago. Therefore, the quick distribution of the stable version of the software suggests that the beta version was successful.
