OnePlus Nord got its first Open Beta update earlier this month which was the first OxygenOS 11 update based on the Android 11 OS. The Chinese smartphone maker has now released the OxygenOS Open Beta 2 for the OnePlus Nord which is meant to help fix some issues in the previous build and also to optimize against full release.
The new Open Beta 2 doesn’t come with any feature but based on the Open Beta 1 release. This time around, the focus is much more on bug fixes and optimizations.
If you never got the first Open Beta release for the OnePlus Nord, it came with an improved user interface for the device’s calculator application as well as positioning of the icons and animations on the device’s lockscreen. It also had some improved background app management to allow instant messenger apps like WhatsApp receive messages while the app is running at the background.
As far as fixes are concerned, the update fixes the battery icon display issue while changing the phone’s orientation, a problem with Dirac audio tuner, and unable to set alarms. Further, the build also fixes Messenger Bubbles, come camera app issues, and unable to set SIM 2 as the default bug. Below is the changelog of the Open Beta 2 of the OxygenOS 11 for OnePlus Nord.
- Optimized the UI display of Calculator
- Optimized the position and animation of some icons in the lock screen
- Optimized the background management of Whatsapp to receive more timely messages
- Fixed the issue that the battery icon is not displayed after the device is rotated from landscape to portrait
- Fixed the small probability issue where the Dirac Audio Tuner may fail to adjust the sound effect

The roll-out of the OxygenOS open beta 2 is currently being done via OTA for those who have the initial build running on their device while those who want it can download the build file from the OnePlus Community.
However, it will be best to always have your data backed up first before installing the update because it’s not the final build, there are possibilities of bugs ruining your device’s operation and might require you revert back to the older version.
