This will be the final OS upgrade for the first generation OnePlus Nord phone that was released in 2020. OnePlus Nord users will have one more year of security updates to look forward too before support for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G powered phone comes to an end.

The Android 12 flavored Oxygen 12 update promises a lot of new features such as system wide dark mode that is customizable, an improved focus mode, improved Canvas AOD mode and more. The update will also include Android security patches till April 2022.

There is a new Smart Battery mode that uses algorithms to prolong the life of your battery, new desktop icons with improved designs, three adjustable levels of dark mode, more options for Cards and access to OnePlus Scout in Shelf.


Canvas AOD, which allows the Nord to convert images into 3D wireframes, also gets more features like multiple brush sizes and support for color adjustment. OnePlus says that it has improved its software algorithm to better identify facial features and different skin tones.

There are a few gaming related updates here too, like Hyperboost which will stabilize frame rates and voice effect previews, which allow you to record a voice and check a preview of it, in real-time.
