Smartphone major OnePlus has begun the rollout of the Android 11 to its Nord smartphone. The first open beta of Oxygen OS 11 had arrived about two months ago and this is the stable version.
The Android 11 update brings with it changes and additions. First of all, it brings a new UI design, new Insight clock design that changes as per phone usage data and new Canvas always-on display.
The major change is the toggle for Dark Mode. The shortcut key can be found by pulling down on the quick settings. You can also now schedule the time range for the feature to turn on automatically. For this, there is a “Turn on automatically” option under ‘Dark Mode’ in ‘Settings’.
Some other features are a new shelf UI, new weather widget “with smarter animation effect” and a Story feature to automatically create weekly stories from your locally stored photos and videos.
OnePlus says that it has optimised the loading speed “to improve the image preview experience”. The company advises Nord users to have at least 30% battery in their phones and a minimum space of 3GB before applying the update.
