OnePlus Nord N200 to Receive One Major Android Update and Three Years of Security Patches

The OnePlus Nord N200 5G was launched last week and it comes with a Snapdragon 480 SoC along with a high refresh rate of 90Hz display.  It is the successor to the entry-level Nord N100 smartphone. The device’s software update timeline has been released, detailing the amount of years it will be supported by OnePlus.

The OnePlus Nord N200 5G will receive only one major software upgrade, presumably Android 12, given that the phone was launched with Android 11 out-of-the-box. OnePlus also confirmed that in addition to the major software update, it will also provide three years of maintenance updates to the OnePlus Nord N200 5G.

It’s unclear as OnePlus did not reveal the time gap between two maintenance updates. According to the OnePlus CEO, the company is going to merge with OPPO to bring better products for customers.

He also pointed out that one of the changes could be faster and more stable software updates that are often demanded by customers. “With the merging of both firms, we will have more resources at hand to create even better products. It will also allow us to be more efficient in our operations,” OnePlus CEO said.
