    Hey everyone,

    Here is the latest open beta build for the OnePlus Nord!

    Please bear in mind that this is beta software and, as such, may be less stable than stable MP builds. If you are installing this build, we highly recommend you make a full system back-up before proceeding.

    • System
      • Fixed the issue where Work-Life Balance does not display full information in the Quick Settings
      • Fixed the flashback issue with the Quick Settings when enabling the Location
      • Fixed the small probability issue that the documents in the Lockbox may disappear
      • Fixed the issue that the Privacy Policy page is displayed abnormally if the device is in Dark Mode
      • Fixed the issue that the fast charging sound is too loud
      • Fixed the issue with the Calculator that the UI where results are showed is displayed abnormally
      • Fixed the issue with the abnormal display of Calculator button size
      • Updated Android Security Patch to 2021.02
      • Improved system stability
    • File Manager
      • Fixed the issue that the File Manager may crash when stopping the unzipping process
    • OnePlus Community
      • Fixed the small probability flashback issue with the OnePlus Community when entering the Profile page

    Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are sometimes not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks. For those who were on previous versions for OnePlus Nord, we appreciate your active feedback and for reaching out to us. With your help, we have been able to better optimize and improve several key areas. Thank you for your patience and as always, we look forward to getting your continued feedback via the Community app.

    If you don't have the Community app installed on your device, feel free to download it HERE. You can check here for more information on the integrated Feedback tool.

    Please note:
    • If you have already flashed an Open Beta (you are currently running the latest Open Beta), you will receive this new build as an OTA.
    • If you are not running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM on the downloads page here.
    • Once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
    • Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (full wipe of all data and cache).
    Make sure to let us know how you feel about the beta builds here in the thread too. We are watching.

    Never Settle.

    There is a still some lag and font issue with Oxygen 11 stable version. Default font is too large, small one is too small.

    There is an annoying prompt for connecting with 1+ account at the top of Settings. I'd prefer for it not be there.

    Going the right way ;)

    Any idea when we can expect a beta for the N10?

    Hi Abdul/OnePlus,

    Many times said in the threads & reported feedback regarding below things:

    - Notification issue is still there with most of the apps(not only what's app) & specially parallel apps are having so much issue with getting notification.

    - Locking an app to keep it run in background doesn't works sometimes, as I have noticed this issue bcoz I needed to keep parallel app run in background as there is notification issue. But sometimes the lock didn't work.

    - Fast charging, isn't fast anymore. Also battery drains very fast even after using phone for only basic work/tasks.

    - Phone lags sometimes, the notification panel lags while pulling down.

    - Bluetooth sometimes still get disconnected & camera too needs bit more improvements.

    - The most frustrating thing is Gallery app, it takes so much time to load photos/videos. We got so many updates on playstore regarding this but none of them actually worked.

    Kindly please consider these things...

    This is becoming into a joke... The Nord gets stable android11 before 7 series and 7T series and now a new beta.

    In one week the Nord has got:

    1. Android10 update
    2. Android11 stable
    3. New android11 beta

    @dsmonteiro What is going on with 7 and 7T series? Is so problematic to update those devices?

    Newer phones are always attention seeking... When OP7 released it got Android 10 in a swift... likewise it's the time for Nord

    Because stable and beta builds will continue to run concurrently until eventually the beta programme for your device ends.

    Remember, just because the Android 11 stable is released that does not mean that there will not be more updates for it. The beta builds continue, to test new features etc before possibly being introduced into future stable builds.

    Before we get the upcoming feature in beta version as compare to stable version
