OnePlus Nord 2T grabs the Android 13 based OxygenOS 13 update in India


OnePlus was once known for being relatively quick in updating smartphones to the latest version of Android. But, OnePlus is not the same company it used to be. On the other side, Samsung has been on a roll with its software update cycle, updating its entire portfolio of smartphones and handsets. OnePlus has announced the release of OxygenOS 13’s stable build for the OnePlus Nord 2T, making it the first OnePlus smartphone in 2023 to get upgraded with Android 13-based custom Android skin.

A few weeks ago, OnePlus has started Android 13 OS based OxygenOS 13 Beta program for the Nord 2T users in India. The OxygenOS 13 update for the OnePlus Nord 2T is currently rolling out in India with the firmware version CPH2401_11.C.23 and it also includes the December 2022 security patch to enhance system security and improve system stability.

OnePlus has confirmed the latest build will be pushed out first to the users who participated in the Open Beta versions, and then it’ll be gradually pushed to more users.

The latest build will bring you the Aquamorphic Design theme colors, which offers an enhanced visual comfort along with other visual changes that follow a similar philosophy. You will also get various optimizations in performance, including the Dynamic Computing Engine that improve the system speed, stability, battery life, and app experience.

It also brings upgrades to the HyperBoost GPA 4.0 to stabilize the frame rate and balance the performance and power consumption in various situations. Optimized Bitmoji now offers more Always-On Display animations with more personalized settings. The update improved system speed, stability, and battery life.
