OnePlus recently launched the Nord 2 mid-range handset in India and other markets in July after the success of the original OnePlus Nord, with the device receiving a post-launch update that tweaked the auto-brightness mode, added an option for Ultra Resolution and improved overall app performance.
The updates released after that fixed the camera performance of the device and tackled additional bugs. Today OnePlus is releasing a new update that will further address issues of the software UI.
