OnePlus has recently released the OnePlus Nord CE 5G. The device came and many thought it would be a sequel for the OnePlus Nord or even a new OnePlus Nord N20. However, the device was just a “Core Edition” of the OnePlus Nord. It arrives with the objective of offering a similar experience but with a lower price tag. The OnePlus Nord 2 was unveiled a few days ago as the flagship of the Nord series. However, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G will still be updated and receive the same treatment as a recently released device. Today OnePlus is rolling out a new incremental update for the handset.
The new update is reaching the OnePlus Nord CE with OxygenOS 18.104.22.168 build number. The update brings various fixes for the handset as well as a “Optimized overheating control management”. It also improves overall stability, fixes some known issues, and brings improvements to the camera image clarity and stability. Moreover, the camera will have better white balance consistency, and improved image quality while in Nightscape mode.
Of course, the update is not a massive one but brings enhancements that can be considered important. As usual, OnePlus will be rolling out this update in a gradual manner. Just a few select smartphones should receive at this first moment. If no critical bug appears in the meantime, then the company will roll out the update for more units. So, if you did not receive the update notification right now, just wait a couple of days, since it will eventually come.
OnePlus Nord CE 5G will get Android 12 and Android 13 based updates
OnePlus has recently announced that mid-range smartphones such as the OnePlus Nord, and the Nord CE 5G will be eligible for two major Android upgrades. The devices will receive at least three years of security patches. However, this doesn’t mean that they will roll out monthly security patches until that is the deadline. We may see the company switching to a bi-monthly or even quarterly update schedule as the devices get older.
