Bad news for anyone who wants to buy a OnePlus Nord N10 5G or OnePlus Nord N100: the brand has confirmed that they will only receive Android 11, not beyond. OnePlus will update the security patches of both phones for two years. And without this strategy between the OnePlus Nord original.
The latest mobiles presented by OnePlus not only target the mid-range to a greater extent, but also they have characteristics and price in that line. The OnePlus Nord N100 is already in pre-sale, also the OnePlus Nord 10 5G is about to hit stores. And today we have known another limitation that its future owners will have to deal with: both phones will only receive a major update during their useful life.
Android 11 and two years of security updates
OnePlus has put a notable emphasis on updating its higher-end mobiles, even debuting the OnePlus 8T directly with Android 11. Yes, the brand gives a different treatment to the Nord: the original mobile will not receive Android 11 until 2021 and does not even have access to the Open Beta with OxygenOS 11. And his more modest brothers have not started off on a better foot.
The news Android Central uncovered it: as confirmed from OnePlus, and we have been able to corroborate with the company, the software strategy for the two most modest mobiles only warrants a major upgrade. Or what is the same: the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and OnePlus Nord N100 will not receive more than Android 11. If we take into account that they should have started with this version of the operating system, the movement does not seem the most successful.
The official statement from OnePlus regarding the latest Nord is as follows:
“The Nord N10 5G and N100 will receive a major Android update and a total of two years of security updates. The plan for these two devices aligns with industry standards for smartphones in more affordable price ranges. As always We will continue to listen to feedback from our users and look for ways to improve the software experience for all OnePlus devices. “
Security updates are not exempt, they should be coming to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100. We do not know if quarterly or monthlyNor if OnePlus will reconsider by updating them, at least, to Android 12.
