With its familiar high-quality design, 90Hz display and gorgeous 6.44-inch OLED display, along with 8GB of RAM and close-to-stock Android, OnePlus’ new budget phone is apparently well worth the hype that surrounded its launch. date is almost two weeks away, on August 4, OnePlus’ new budget king has already started getting its first software update (via AndroidCentral). Coming as OxygenOS 10.5.1, the OnePlus Nord update says to bring camera optimizations.These include better depth detection and improved 4K video recording, especially at 60 frames per second (FPS).
