OnePlus Nord 2 5G Software Update: Users not happy with the automatic update, First update in India

OnePlus Nord 2 5G Software Update

The OnePlus Nord 2 5G users in India literally woke up to a OnePlus Nord 2 5G Software Update this morning as their Nord 2 devices received the latest Software update automatically without any permission or a ‘download’ click.

This is technically the second Software Update for the OnePlus Nord 2 5G as it received its first Software Update not more than two days ago, but it was for the European variant.

However, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G users took the unusual automatic Software Update issue to Twitter and expressed their disappointment with OnePlus as most of the users don’t prefer Automatic Software updates and they can’t disable them. Still, OnePlus bypassed the privacy settings and delivered, downloaded and installed the Software Update.

Most of the users which received the OnePlus Nord 2 5G Software Update are from India while this Automatic Software Update has not been reported by other regions.

Our very own Twitter handle was one of the first to report the OnePlus Nord 2 5G Automatic Update but it didn’t include the update log as it was not available at the time.

User reactions

This automatic update happened with many OnePlus Nord 2 5G users in India, and a famous YouTuber “Geekyranjit” was one of them.

He got the latest Software Update too on his device but the catch was that he got it in Chinese text. Similarly, many users received the update in Chinese text which may be related to the ‘OnePlus+Oppo code base integration’. Although, these are the details that we can only speculate on.

The most common reaction of the OnePlus Nord 2 5G users in India was not so jubilant as they were unhappy with the breach of privacy via the automatic Software Update.

Let us hope OnePlus doesn’t perform this kind of update again without the user’s permission.
