OnePlus spokesperson confirmed to Android Central that only one major Android update will be released for the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and OnePlus Nord N100 smartphones. The spokesperson also said that the company will continue to seek community feedback to improve the software experience of all its OnePlus smartphones.
Usually Android phones get two years of Android update support and three years of security patches. However, it seems that OnePlus has different plans for OnePlus Nord N10 5G and OnePlus Nord N100. These two smartphones were launched after OnePlus 8T, which came with Android 11. If the company had launched these two smartphones with Android 11 and promised them other Android updates, people could have accepted the purchase of this smartphone.
The move by the company in the opposite direction to its budget smartphone is quite surprising, especially for a company like OnePlus which is considering bringing the flagship experience to affordable smartphones.
