OnePlus 5GB security update

A giant 5GB OnePlus security update surprised me more than OxygenOS 13.1

Currently, OxygenOS 13.1 rollout is one of the most surprising things that could happen to OnePlus smartphone users, but recently, that surprise is ruined by a 5GB security update that landed on a device. Let’s learn what this new firmware holds in its bag.

The story outline begins when a OnePlus Nord 2 smartphone user received the May 2023 update. Accordingly, the firmware arrived with the OxygenOS 13 F.45 build and carries a few fixes for the weather application. In addition, you may find stability changes as well.

While exploring the changelog, the user saw a jumbo OnePlus security update package of nearly 5GB (5.08GB exactly). This made him believe that OxygenOS 13.1 upgrade has made its way to his handy gadget. However, the excitement vanished as he read the entire changelog.

Consequently, the device has still not obtained the 13.1 version on its board. Instead, the company has just blessed it with the latest security patch. Ironically, the Nord 2 owner said that again we have gained some new bugs but this time, it’s in the form of OTA package size.


The large size could be a result of multiple security patches that are bundled into one package. Meanwhile, users may obtain some hidden tweaks and optimizations for the battery life, overall functioning, and other aspects of the device.

On the flip side, a user commented on the community forum that the updates often run as incremental while at other times, it could be the full install file. This could be one of the reasons, why the latest update owns a huge package size.
