OnePlus Nord users have a reason to rejoice. Today OnePlus announced that it is rolling out the OxygenOS 10.5.9 update for its affordable Android phone. The most important features that come with the new update are Game Space and the Android security patch for the month of October. This update isn’t major, but it helps games in particular who no longer have to scour their app gallery to find games. The game space will group all games into a single folder, along with system optimizations to launch as soon as it opens.
OnePlus has had a good track record when it comes to rolling out software updates. And it becomes a compelling presentation for people who might be looking North but now have more reasons to pick up the phone. October is almost over and the security patch is now available. However, last month’s security journey took longer than usual. The Android security patch was released in early October, but was supposed to be released in late September. Either way, this month’s updates are on time.
What else do you get with the new OxygenOS update?
OnePlus Nord users will see, among other things, the new quick response function, the mis-touch prevention function and the stability of the Bluetooth connection. Network reliability has also been improved as part of the OxygenOS 10.5.9 release. OnePlus has also fixed some bugs with the update but that’s about it. In case you were waiting to get Android 11 software on your OnePlus Nord, it won’t happen until late 2020 or early 2021. OnePlus Nord currently runs on Android 10 version.
To update your OnePlus Nord, you need to go to your phone settings. Next, go to System and then to System Updates. The tool will perform an automatic search to see if an update is available. After it is located, you will be prompted to download and install the update. Make sure you have enough battery and all your important data is backed up in advance.
