New OnePlus Nord 2 update brings optimizations for PUBG and August 2021 patches

OnePlus has rolled out several software updates to its latest affordable flagship — OnePlus Nord 2 — since its launch last month. The first post-launch update optimized the auto-brightness mode, added an Ultra Resolution mode, improved app performance, and optimized network performance. The subsequent updates focused on tweaking the camera performance and fixing user-reported bugs. Now, the OnePlus Nord 2 is picking up another software update that further fine-tunes the overall software experience.
