    The logic of planning this product line is not from this perspective, so I couldn't say that "Sandwiched" standard series becomes obsolete. And the point we really consider is to meet the needs of users. It's that simple.

    Interesting question.

    Teamwork is really important, and this time around the coronavirus situation made it a lot more difficult. Instead of being in the same physical space, we had to rely heavily on online communication tools for the majority of this project. And for a new project team that haven't work together before, we quickly realized what a luxury it is to be able to share the same location as your team. But hey, we overcame that... :)

    This is the best thing about OnePlus.
    No other smartphone community gets this much interaction with the core members of team.
    This is what made OnePlus stand unique from others.

    NEVER SETTLE

    To ensure a flagship-level camera experience, we've incorporated OIS - this will really make a difference for night photography. We also have a 90Hz AMOLED display, something that's rarely seen in this price segment, to ensure a smooth visual experience. We also bring our favorate Oxygen OS with 3 years security update and 2 years of software updates, similar to our flagship products.

    Thanks for replying @Andy Lui. much appreciated!

    Was speaking to friends recently, who seemed to want to get into the OnePlus Ecosystem, and the launch of a relatively cheap phone + buds is their ticket in!

    Great work, let's see the Nord 2 and Buds 2 pack an even bigger punch!

    There's been a lot of highs and lows. Seeing all the excitement around the launch was definitely a highlight, but what I'm looking forward to the most is when consumers actually get their hands on the product, and hearing their feedback.

    Thank you.

    We originally challenged Akis to come up with a back up plan in case coronavirus meant that we couldn't do a regular launch, and AR was what he came up with. Turns out, it's better than the real thing.

    For me, The visit to India ofc. The one-on-ones, focus groups with my team, visiting our own stores and stores of other brands. It was enlightening and also validated our product positioning. It was a great experience!

    To be honest, shooting at 4K 60fps is very power consuming, which is why we've not included it on our rear camera.

    Some of the communication apps are system apps. Changing default apps for legacy devices is something under investigation.:smilecat:

    My Last Question is
    Were you'll afraid that the OnePlus nord was about to be launched and the sales wouldn't be that high due to this Covd-19 Situation?

    (Now after seeing customers response I'm really glad for OnePlus who values their customers #OnePlusForLife)

    Way back when I first came across an article/interview with @Pete about his vision of the OnePlus One (+1) I was really excited and could not sign up and make an account fast enough.

    His vision about the +1 sounded almost too good to be true.
    So when it finally launched I was quick to get my hand on it. Even tough I live in Norway Wich was not on the list of countries it would be released (ordered it through Sweden and picked it up at a store just across the border)
    Bought three in total, for myself, my wife and a good friend.
    My account was made so early that I had invites to go around [e]1f60d[/e] (believe I was among the very first to make an account on the forums)
    To this date it's still one of my most cherished items, I LOVE it! @Pete really came through with his promises, Thank you!

    Jump ahead a few years and imo OnePlus had swayed away from the affordable flagship killers, it was no longer in my price range to buy a new OnePlus [e]1f44e[/e]
    We (me and wife) are currently using a OnePlus 6 each. Will probably never change to another brand.

    So my question(s):
    **Was it a intentionally decision to make products in the higher price range or did it just naturally get that way?
    **What is the one thing you as a company is most proud of with the OnePlus Nord?
    I always thought OnePlus would only make "budget" phones and was a bit disappointed when it was time to buy new ones.

    Now both me and my wife are saving up to get our hands on the OnePlus Nord, as far I can see it reminds me alot of the +1 in regards to being a "flagship" killer with specifications to battle with anyone willing to pick a fight [e]1f602[/e]

    Sorry for the long read, but I'm really happy OnePlus is going back to its roots!

    Forever a big fan! Thank you!
