    @Leo Lei

    Are we likely to see development of One Plus 'true' wireless headphones? No connecting wires between ear buds. Has R&D looked at adding functionality to them, along the lines of the new Microsoft ear buds.

    Given the power behind the latest One Plus handsets, it would be nice to have some extra remote tricks via the ear pieces.

    User programmable functions like: slow double tap for both left and right, then fast double tap too. How bout tap left and right at the same time, then double too at the same time on left and right. You also consider long hold for each ear piece and both at the same time. Maybe slide controls like the MS ones.

    I really think wireless headsets should embrace what is possible due to the fact they are remote. I'm not sure I have seen anyone really take this to the next level.

    Not an AMA question, should this get answered. I would like to know if the USB C to 3.5mm audio convertor is TRS or TRRS. I am a podcaster and am due to record remote interviews via my phone. Would be useful to know for my recording setup.


    Hope the AMA is successful.

    Thanks so much @Zach X. for this great AMA. Since I'm a real fan of OnePlus merchandising I want to address my questions to @Donna L.:

    OnePlus matching T-Shirts: I once shared an idea on OnePlus clothing for babies/children
    (Weekly Update 318: It's co-creation). Lately I saw this pair of T-Shirts and it made me think if and how OnePlus could implements these kinds of ideas in their merchandising line...
    Question 1: @Donna L., do you think it would be interesting to design a special line of matching T-shirts with some catchy frases for all those OnePlus moms and dads?

    Explorer Backpack: Me and my wife, we both love our Explorer Backpacks and we use it every day to take our lunch and drinks to work. Since the design is quite unique we both receive a lot of praise about the backpack, which is quite cool! :cool:
    Question 2: @Donna L., since the release of the OnePlus Explorer backpack I can imagine that you've received quite some feedback over time. If you could name one aspect of the current OnePlus Explorer backpack that you would improve in the 2.0 version, what would it be?

    My question is this, why did you get rid of the pop up camera on the Oneplus 8 Pro, I thought it was a brilliant feature.

    @Christine L.

    how come it took so long to get a case that covers the whole phone? I love the sandstone case but hated the fact it wasn't very protective so I was really glad to see it finally covers the whole phone now.

    as a side note are there any plans to bring back the flip cases?

    Hello all, hope you are well!

    @Christine L. I appreciate that the fabric One Plus 7pro case is one of the only fabric cases on the market. What was the inspiration behind going fabric? Are there any plans in the future for different fabric colours or styles???

    Hi everyone, thanks for this opportunity.

    @Christine L. what's your team's thoughts on a more feminine range, not female as I don't mean gender orientated, but expanding a little beyond the style of androgyny?

    Hey @Zach X.
    Love to see AMA again
    My question is for @Leo Lei
    Being a musician myself and an avid content watcher, I tend to listen to a lot of music and content. So, kudos on giving the BWZ the best battery backup ever!
    And yes I also like the Oat colour a lot [e]2764[/e]️
    BWZ is really great to use but during workouts and watching content while lying the band creates a bit of nuisance. So, my question is:
    Are there going to be truly wireless buds by OnePlus sometime soon? Also wanted to know what will your thought process be about the design of those buds?
    Thanks again for the amazing BWZ earphones!

    At first thanks a lot @Zach X. for this AMA!!!

    A wish and a question @Christine L. - as the 'head of cases' :)

    Not that the actual Glasbacks where 'ugly' ;), but... I love the wooden Style cases since first day, especially the 'black Apricot' one... will there be a chance to get them - the wooden cases - in the future for the next generation models... please... that would be great :)

    Hello @Leo Lei

    What was the biggest challenge with figuring out how to shrink the tech of headphones into a wireless version? Also how do you think they stack up compared to other wireless brands?

    Will an on-board cryptocurrency wallet be something that we can expect from future iterations of the OnePlus line?

    Why would you let the OnePlus 6 have dual SIM Card capability, but create the OnePlus 7T McLaren Edition not have the dual SIM?
