OnePlus has released the Android 13-based OxygenOS 13 update for the OnePlus Nord 2T. The rollout began on Thursday for Indian users who participated in the beta program. The new firmware version for Indian phones is CPH2401_11.C.23. A broader public rollout should happen soon after the company confirms the stable release is bug-free.
The OnePlus Nord 2T gets a ton of new features and improvements with this update. It includes all the features that are part of Android 13 and OnePlus’ custom software OxygenOS 13. The UI is visually updated using what the company calls Aquamorphic Design. Give your phone’s system UI elements a new look, including colors, animations, and other interactive buttons.
In a community forum post, OnePlus added media playback controls in Quick Settings, larger folders on the home screen, more markup tools for screenshot editing, better Always-On Display (AOD) animations, dynamic computing, and more. We also mentioned the addition of some new features. Engine for improved performance, support for HyperBoost GPA 4.0 for improved gaming experience, and privacy and security overhauls. You can find the full changelog here.
Apart from these perks, the latest update for OnePlus Nord 2T also brings the December 2022 Android security patch. Last month’s security release patched a number of vulnerabilities across various system apps, services, and components. Google has already released his January 2023 patch, but this mid-range of his OnePlus smartphone hasn’t gotten it yet, but there’s still a lot to look forward to here.
Android 13 arrives on OnePlus Nord 2T
OnePlus has been rolling out the Android 13 update to its target phones for several months. The company was expected to prioritize flagship models such as the OnePlus 10 Pro. After covering most of its recent flagships with a big Android update, the company recently shifted focus to its mid-range Nord lineup, with the Nord CE 2 receiving a new release late last month. The Nord 2T has joined the ranks.
If you have this mid-range OnePlus smartphone, Android 13 will be available in the next few days. You will be notified when his OTA (over the air) package is available for your unit. You can also check for updates manually from the system menu in the Settings app. As mentioned above, this update is currently only available to beta users in India. It may be a while before all his OnePlus Nord 2T users receive his Android 13 worldwide.
