    I have trouble organizing files with directory structure with Android. Are there methods to accomplish this?

    Hi @Hope L.

    My question is: Will there ever be a lineup for "unconventional" devices like the first concept of the OnePlus Nord (the one with three square cameras in the shape of an "L")?

    These days it seems like all phone designs are very similar (large screen, small bezels, no headphone jack, etc.). Do you believe that smartphone design (specifically OnePlus smartphones) is coming to a standstill or do you believe that our "standard smartphone" will continue evolving? Is OnePlus working on anything that may be different from where the rest of the industry is trending?

    Hello, my question for @Hope L. is in a globalised world like this one, how do you as a designer stay conscious of the world beyond the screen. Majority of people in the world have smartphones, which many of us take for granted, but do you consider any concepts of sustainability when executing your designs? Whether it be from inspiration to functionality.

    I was wondering if the OnePlus 8 Pro has the capability to run 90hz on the refresh rate? And if in the future an update could add that?

    I love using 120hz all the time but there may be a time that I want to save battery but not damper the experience. It would be awesome to have that option.

    Hi @Hope,
    Actually I don't have questions like others have, I have a request. May be it will be inappropriate to ask this in this thread. Please accept my apologies.
    Oneplus products are so popular among the people of Bangladesh like India. And i along with the other users are very much happy to hear the news about every new products and services. Considering the amount of Oneplus users in my country, please make it easy for us to get these privileges like other countries. It will be great for all the Oneplus users who live in Bangladesh.

    I love the clean lines in the my 8 5G. Given the fact that most users will place thier phones within a protective case, wouldn't it be savoy to design both phone and case together on order to achieve symbiosis? I like my case. It suits my need, but you can tell that it was not designed by that same person that designed the phone.

    Hello @Hope L. What's your thoughts on the disappearance of the popup camera? I love my 7 Pro and think that my favorite part of it is the lack of any cutout or hole. I don't really like how oneplus dropped the popup camera after it and want to know if you think compromising maybe the convenience of a cutout for the design factor is worth it or if you think there's another direction that this sort of tech will go. Thanks!!

    Is wireless charging part of the concept? If so, is there any talks of a wireless 'warp' charge?
