The OnePlus Nord came with OxygenOS 10 and later received the Android 11 update on top of OxygenOS 11. Now, the brand has started pushing the OxygenOS 126.96.36.199 for the Nord smartphone. The update is currently rolling out in many regions such as India, North America and Europe. OnePlus has pushed the August 2021 Android security patch update. Here is the changelog of the new update.
