Latest OnePlus Nord 2 updates
May 31, 2022: The time has finally come for OnePlus Nord 2 owners, as stable Android 12 is now being released for your device (h/t: XDA-Developers). However, OnePlus seems to have still labelled this as a beta version (C.04), suggesting that the company feels its most recent beta was good enough for a stable release.
Nevertheless, the 4.89GB update brings a host of features, such as a smart battery engine, a more customizable dark mode, new Shelf options, a Hyperboost option for gaming, and improved face unlock.

- December 9, 2021: Oxygen OS A.14 rolled out with the November 2021 Android security patch and general stability improvements.
- November 16, 2021: A new unannounced update is rolling out to the OnePlus Nord 2. Spotted by XDA-Developers, and reported by a user on OnePlus’ Forums, Oxygen OS A.13/A.12 for India/Europe weighs in around 645MB and brings more nips and tucks to the mid-range device. Oddly enough, as pointed out by XDA and a screenshot from OnePlus Updater, the European patch includes the October 2021 Android security patch, not the November update slated for the Indian release.
