We usually see smartphone brands start rolling out new software updates to expensive models first and then shift focus to other phones in the portfolio. In a surprising turn of events, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G has become the first OnePlus device to receive the January 2021 security patch. It has happened well ahead of many other expensive offerings including current-gen flagships.
The OnePlus Nord N10 5G is essentially receiving OxygenOS 10.5.9 software update. The update does not bring any new features or major changes as it is primarily focused on fixing bugs. The main goal of the new version to improve the software experience, performance stability, and power efficiency. The highlight of the update is January 2021 security patch which makes it the first OnePlus phone to receive.
The update bears the firmware version number 10.5.9.BE89BA for the European market and version number 10.5.9.BE86AA for the North American variant. The difference is only in the version numbers as the official changelog being the same for both the markets. The update should become available for your phone anytime soon if it has not arrived already.
