OnePlus Nord CE 5G has started receiving OxygenOS 126.96.36.199 as the first software update since launch. The update brings the May 2021 Android security patch and features a series of improvements that include better screen color accuracy and improved portrait photography with the front camera. OnePlus Nord CE 5G also received an improved rear camera experience. You can also expect regular system-level bug fixes via the latest update being rolled out in India.
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G update is 172MB in size and carries the OxygenOS software version 188.8.131.52EB13DA. It brings the May 2021 Android security patch as one of the most significant changes that includes the latest fixes for known vulnerabilities. However, in addition to the security patch, the OxygenOS update improves the color accuracy of the screen as well as the portrait photography of the selfie camera. There are also rear camera improvements in white balance consistency and improved image details, according to the official changelog.
OnePlus has also provided fixes for known issues and improved performance stability for OnePlus Nord CE 5G through the software update.
It is important to note that the OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 update is available for a large number of customers exactly one week after the launch of OnePlus Nord CE 5G. Gadgets 360, however, understands that the update reached a few users, including reviewers, a few days ago. This is expected from OnePlus as it chooses to offer updates in a phased manner.
That said, you can check the availability of the OxygenOS update on your OnePlus Nord CE 5G by going to Settings > System > System updates.
OnePlus Nord CE 5G launched last week in India and around the world. The smartphone is packed with features like a 90Hz AMOLED display and a 750G Snapdragon SoC. It went on sale open from Wednesday.
