One of the cheapest 5G smartphones launched by OnePlus in the United States, the Nord N200, is now receiving the highly anticipated Android 12 update. The bad news is that this is the last major update the OnePlus Nord N200 is getting 5G, so if you’re eager to get the latest version of Android on your phone, you’ll have to switch to a newer device after Google launches Android 13 later this year. That said, the OnePlus Nord N200 remains a decent 5G budget-friendly smartphone, so if you bought the carrier-unlocked version, you should receive a new OxygenOS 12 update based on Android 12, XDA Developers reports.
In addition to Android 12, the update includes the May security patch as well as some of OnePlus’ own new features and improvements. Below is the full changelog for the OxygenOS 12 C.15 update:
- [Optimized] AI System Booster to 2.1 to keep the system running smoothly even when the load was high

Keep in mind that the update is rolling out in waves, so it may take a few days to reach all OnePlus Nord N200 users. Since the carrier-unlocked version of the phone is now being updated to Android 12, we expect T-Mobile will make the update available very soon.
