On Wednesday, OnePlus released the OxygenOS 10.5.1 update for the OnePlus Nord with various camera improvements. That update was sized at 103MB and was the first after the phone debuted in India earlier this week.

The OnePlus Nord is set to go on sale in the Indian market starting August 4. However, as companies normally try to fix initial issues and provide all the promised features to their new launches ahead of their sale, OnePlus seems to have brought the new update days before its availability in the country.
