OxygenOS Open Beta 3 for the OnePlus Nord now available with camera and ambient display improvements

OnePlus started February with a treat for its users by releasing a new OxygenOS Open Beta for the OnePlus 8 series. It seems that the update train is going at full steam, cause the Chinese OEM has now started rolling out the third OxygenOS 11 beta build for the OnePlus Nord. As with the last two Android 11-based beta releases, there are a number of changes in this update.
