    @Hope L. Absolutely love the OnePlus Concept in terms of camera display capabilities, as well as overall rear design. Will we ever see such technologies and/design implemented into future OnePlus devices? I understand McLaren partnership is over, but surely the technology is available to be developed?

    @Hope L. Sir
    Here is my Question
    Why Mobile Industry shifted towards Glass Back Panel instead of Metal ?
    As we all know Metal dissipate heat much more better when compared with glass.
    Coming to design perspective and opportunities to create stunning designs I feel even Metal is no less than Glass
    For example metal carvings, laser pattern printings, knurls , many more creative possibilities are there ...

    Hope my question is unique reasonably good one 🙂

    I have the OnePlus 7 Pro and it looks & feels AMAZING without a case, but with a case it feels like any other phone. I would love to have a phone with the design aesthetics of the OP7P, plus enough resilience to not needed a TPU case. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think we'll be able to have a beautiful phone that doesn't need a case in the near future?

    With so many colors in the visible light spectrum, and everyone having their own favorite, how about making a phone that you can choose the color of? I absolutely love the Purple Thunder of the 6T, but I had to settle for Glacier Blue with the 7T. Being able to choose the color of your phone, without going to an older model or using a bulky case, would be a fresh personalization option. Thank you for reading.

    How about removing the curved screen edge, for a standard edge. The curved edge makes any number of apps and controls difficult to use. Additionally, the ability for an owner to change the battery would be nice. A sealed device is planned obsolescence.

    @hope My question for you is has there been discussion or prototypes for an under the screen front facing camera? I have a OnePlus 7 pro and love the full screen with no punch holes.

    any chance you will bring back the motorized front facing camera or some mechanism that will allow privacy on front facing camera in the future like the one plus 7 pro? thanks
