Latest OnePlus Nord updates

May 16, 2022: Oxygen OS 12 — based on Android 12 — is now rolling out in stable condition to the original OnePlus Nord. However, so far, the update is only rolling out to Indian models. OnePlus says the EU versions require “additional validation steps” and will roll out “as soon as possible.”

The changelog below reflects updates from the most recent Open Beta 2:

  • System
    • [Updated] Android security patch to 2022.04
    • [Fixed] the issue of abnormal Touch sounds
    • [Fixed] the issue of abnormal boot animation
    • [Fixed] the occasional issue that unable to start “OK Google” with voice

Unfortunately, this rollout isn’t without problems. Here are the known issues OnePlus is still working on:

  1. The display of some pages in Settings will be different from the system.
  2. The screen will glitch in specific scenarios when calling.
  3. Camera may crash when shooting photos in Portrait mode.
  4. The abnormal display of thumbnail when taking burst pictures.
  5. The abnormal display of Quick device connect when in the Guest mode.

As always, this update will be rolled out via OTA incrementally. Don’t be too concerned if you haven’t yet received it. To check if an update is available, head to Settings > System > System updates on your device.
