New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on Dec 29, 2020) follows:

OnePlus has traditionally been known for its OxygenOS skin. A lightweight custom Android skin that kept many of the design cues from stock Android.

That has since changed with the new edition of the same, OxygenOS 11. This new skin borrows many design elements from Samsung’s One UI and the reception has been pretty varied.

OnePlus has since managed to roll out stable builds of OxygenOS 11 to its OnePlus 8 series of devices, adding to the OnePlus 8T that came with this skin out of the box.

Users of the other OnePlus devices haven’t been quite as lucky. This, as OnePlus is yet to roll out OxygenOS 11 to any of these other devices.

OnePlus Nord is the company’s ‘return-to-its-roots’, at least in terms of price. This capable mid-range device brings many of the OnePlus charms to a more affordable price-range reminiscent of the company’s yesteryears.

Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 has proved elusive for this OnePlus Nord as well, earlier reports of a late 2020 release seemingly amounting to hearsay.

Today, the company is releasing yet another update to the OnePlus Nord, this time bearing the December 2020 security patch.

This update is rolling out with software version numbers 10.5.10.AC01DA for users in India, 10.5.10.AC01BA for European users and 10.5.10.AC01AA for users of the Global variant.​

The changelog for this update hints at little more than a simple routine security update.

The update, however, brings a few changes to the OnePlus Nord in terms of the OnePlus Store, an uninstallable app for Indian users that offers them access to other OnePlus services.


– Updated Android Security Patch to 2020.12
– Updated GMS package to 2020.09
– General bug fixes and improved stability

At the time of writing, it remains unclear when the OnePlus Nord, along with other eligible OnePlus devices, will bag the much-awaited update to OxygenOS 11.

Update (February 23)

IST 02:00 PM: OnePlus is rolling out OxygenOS 10.5.11 to the OnePlus Nord. This update brings the January 2021 security patch with system stability improvements. Could this be the last update before stable OxygenOS 11 rolls out?
