    @Leo Lei The BWZ are probably the most interesting accessory I've seen this year from OnePlus. How did you manage to get the price down from the previous bullets wireless and bullets wireless 2 without compromising much? In some areas they're even better than the previous versions e.g. battery life.
    P.S. The best colour is mint in my opinion

    My Question: Will OnePlus be releasing a smart watch of their own in 2020, as I think it would pair really well having a smart watch with the new OnePlus 8 line?

    Thanks for another AMA @Zach X. And with a really interesting content. I hope you guys are doing fine @Zach X. @Christine L. @Donna L. @Leo Lei

    My question for you @Christine L. is if OnePlus is going to provide accessories for the older devices, when a new one is coming out. And if yes, for how long ti could be possible? It would be nice to find some accessories for the older OnePlus phones while some people will probably need this. Thanks in advanced and have a great day.

    @Leo_lei Why have you decided to pursue with the over neck style wireless earbuds instead of going with a fully wireless desighn like most other manufacturers?

    I'm pretty sure that vodaphone is now the only UK mobile operator that stocks the OnePlus range, which is a shame as I am with O2 also through carphone warehouse and O2 want to buy me out of my contract but their deals are less than appetising.

    The OnePlus 3 was a classic and arguably the perfect flagship killer. the form factor and features were perfect at the time. What would the perfect flagship killer look like if you launched it today.

    Bonus question. Would consider using the OnePlus 3 form to do what apple have done with thier SE iPhone and make a classic budget high spec phone again?

    Hello @Donna L.

    I have been using the travel backpack for years and it is still one of my favorites backpack. I hope I can try the explorer one day.

    How come a mobile company decide to made high quality backpacks? Usually this type of "promotional" merchandising are really poor quality but I have been asked plenty times where my backpack was from and they are always really surprised that is from a Mobile manufacturer!!

    hi @zakhello @Zach X.
    my question is how long does it take for you guys to get an idea of what the next line of products will be like and the first step if making a new phone design?

    @DonnaL. With OnePlus phones having multiple colours on the back, I always want to show this off rather than cover it with a case. Are there plans for better see through cases as the pack in one's get discoloured very quickly?

    I like the cases, very sleek and well formed, but why aren't there more options? It seems there is only the clamshell option, why no full flip case? I have a OnePlus 7t and the packaged case has issues with full screen input as it blocks side screen swiping (a particular issue with the Play Store). I also have to ask why there isn't more options with screen protection, as someone else raised. I recently bought a third party protection kit which surprisingly seems of a much higher grade than that supplied with the unit.

    Hi my question for you is;
    with the advancement of 5g and the possibilities it holds for many different technologies, do you see it having an impact on the likes of wireless ear/headphones?

    such as maybe a pair of bullets that can connect to the internet itself and skip out on needing Bluetooth connectivity to a phone to listen to music

    can someone please explain to me why you have raised you prices so much ?
    it was one of the main reason I came to you but you have stopped me from upgrading because of your price rise

    @Donna L. Two part question please, love the collections available which definitely stand OnePlus further apart from other tech providers!

    What is your inspiration for the latest OnePlus Explorer Backpack and how do you harness all of the creativity from other OnePlus product managers to produce a design that is both stylish and practical and which compliments the OnePlus broader range?

    Good morning Zach and OnePlus team,

    Thank you very much for organising this AMA.

    A question for Christine:
    Would there be a possibility to release official STL files for 3D printing covers of older deprecated models?

    With the very short release schedule, older models quickly lose the attention of the market, albeit being great and working phones, making it difficult some times to find accessories.
    3D printing covers would allow people to print on their own and carry official covers that would be otherwise hard to come by and still promoting the brand.

    Thank you for your time and have a lovely day!
