OnePlus has started pushing yet another software update to the Nord 2 devices, which the users were still waiting to receive the promised “optimized mode” via OxygenOS 12. The new update will essentially reduce the power consumption and improve the back-end management for overall improved performance. Although it appears that this is OnePlus’ way to optimize the system even more before introducing the toggle for disabling throttling.
OnePlus Nord 2 users are getting the OxygenOS 11 A.14 update
Many OnePlus Nord 2 users on the OnePlus community have started reporting that they have received the new update. OnePlus is yet to officially address the release of the software update, which also includes a security patch. This seems like a staged rollout, which essentially means that the update will reach a handful of users and a much wider release is expected to happen in the coming days and weeks. Any OnePlus Nord 2 user can manually check for the update manually by simply heading to the device’s Settings -> System -> System Updates.

OnePlus handsets receive Android 12-based OxygenOS 12 update
As mentioned above, while OnePlus Nord 2 users have been waiting for OxygenOS 12 update, two sets of userbase that no longer have to wait for this update are OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro users, which makes OnePlus the third major smartphone manufacturer (after Google and Samsung) to roll out the newest version of the OS.
The update to Android 12 is being rolled out to users as an over-the-air update. While OnePlus is yet to address the new changes with the update on its official forum, but the update is already being rolled out to users in India in the form of a 4.04GB update. The users may not see the update on their OnePlus 9 or OnePlus 9 Pro smartphone yet as it is being rolled out in stages, but it’ll definitely arrive in the coming days or weeks.
