[Update: Aug 25] OnePlus Nord N100 OxygenOS update: New features, bug fixes, improvements, & more

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

Original story (published on November 04, 2020) follows:

From the very beginning, OnePlus has been striving to push out crazy powerful devices at a fraction of similarly spec’d devices.

Of course, the price bit of the equation has changed in recent times as new devices have crept up the price ladder.

With this, we’ve come to expect flagship internals from all OnePlus devices. Well, until 2020. This year saw OnePlus release the first device without a Snapdragon 800-series chip, the OnePlus Nord.

OnePlus is slowly but surely widening its portfolio of devices and recently, we saw the unveiling of even much cheaper OnePlus Nord devices.

One of the devices is the OnePlus Nord N100 (the other one is the Nord N10 5G). This unit is powered by the lower-tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 paired with 4GB RAM.

It sports a 6.52-inch display and a massive 5000mAh battery. This new OnePlus Nord N100 is obviously not going to win any power contests but offers a cool new proposition for OnePlus fans on a budget.

New reports indicate that this device is getting a new update, presumably its first-ever system update.

This update, according to the changelog, brings improvements and enhancements to the system, camera, along with a few network improvements. Here’s a more detailed changelog.
