OnePlus Nord 5G was one of the best initial 5G smartphones launched in 2020. It was a hit among the upper mid-tier smartphones. The mid-range smartphone from OnePlus was one of the best selling smartphones in its category and OnePlus has also launched the Nord 2.
I own the 12+256GB version of the OnePlus Nord 5G, and it has been great in almost every aspect. Initially, it was launched running on Android 10, but around March 2021, it got an update for Android 11.
Now, OnePlus has pushed the latest Android 12 update for the Nord with the Oxygen 12.1 update. The Android 12 update is around 4000 MB.
