OnePlus Nord CE 5G is receiving its first software update in India. The new Nord smartphone went on sale in the country earlier this week and is the company's cheapest 5G offering. The latest OxygenOS update comes with build number and is about 140MB in size.

The new update brings minor upgrades ranging from system stability, camera, and network. OnePlus says that the latest update brings system-related fixes and improves overall stability. It also improves communication stability in the network side upgrade. However, the OxygenOS update is important for camera enthusiasts as it brings camera-related enhancements.

The changelog confirms that the new update improves the shooting experience with HDR on, improves the nightscape's shooting effect, and optimises the fluency of 1080p 60fps recording.

As with all OxygenOS updates, the company says that users cannot turn off the device while the update is installing as well as the handset cannot be used during the installation process. While this one is a minor update, though if you do not want to spend your mobile data on upgrades, then you can switch to Wi-Fi. Considering this is an over the air update, that means users should get a pop-up notification automatically. However, if you want to check manually, then head to Settings > System > System Update.
