OnePlus Nord Android 11 update rollout has been paused as users were experiencing bugs after updating to the latest version of Android. OnePlus started rolling out Android 11 to OnePlus Nord users at the beginning of March and while there is no official list of bugs shared, users have complained on the company forums about app crashes, notification issues, battery drain and more. These issues seem to have slipped through the open beta phase and have ended up in the final stable version of OxygenOS 11, and unfortunately the rollout has been temporarily put on hold.
A community consultant on the official forum shared that the company has “temporarily paused” the rollout for Android 11 update for the OnePlus Nord due to “some bugs,” according to the post. It states that OnePlus is investigating the issues and will release an updated build as soon as possible. There is no timeline for the new build and no temporary solution for users who installed the update and are facing these bugs.
The post does not detail the bugs that have been detected but users have shared they are facing issues like faster battery drain, app crashes, not getting notifications from apps like WhatsApp and Instagram, as well as a laggy experience overall. These issues seem to have slipped through the beta testing phase that started early in January this year. OnePlus 7 series and OnePlus 7T series also received beta builds in January but a stable Android 11 build has not been rolled out yet. Now, with these issues detected with the stable Android 11 build for the OnePlus Nord, it is unclear what the update timeline for the OnePlus 7/ 7T series will be.
OnePlus Nord users in India started receiving Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 update at the beginning of March and it brought some system improvements, ambient display tweaks, improved dark mode, and improvements to the shelf and gallery. The phone also got a new UI and optimisations to third party app stability.
