- 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.
