    Love the unique querks of all the OnePlus phones so far; I'm curious how much of the design is based on ergonomics like having the fingerprint on the back and how much on just making the phone look awesome?

    @HopeL are there any unique designs which aren't on the current market which you perhaps share with us, ie ones that almost came to fruition or ones you personally would have picked forward

    Dear Mr. Liu,
    OnePlus Buds is such a nice product! I wonder what level of customisation can be achieved to it, by for example, engraving, official skin or case? Apparently we need more colour options than white, gray and Nord blue!
    Thanks very much!

    @HopeL. How does OnePlus hope to revolutionise the tech industry and compete against rivals, how will their USP help them achieve this?

    Most of the current innovations are incriminatal, when can we expect a distributive innovation in design? and are there any current efforts for such an innovation?

    As someone who is also pursuing design, and particularly product design, how did you who is in the 'industry' get started in it and what tips would you give to someone like myself and others who strive to become designers?

    I'm jumping from a one plus 5 to a one plus 7 very soon and was wondering if it has a jack plug similar to the one plus 5.or do I need to buy an adapter.
    Thankyou

    How would the concept phone deal with heat and cold with fabric material built in the phone? I assume over time the material will be damaged over time and lose its appeal

    it's clear that as a company OnePlus cares greatly not only about the ergonomics of a device but also the aesthetics; what inspires the often bold and unique design choices that leads to such beautiful aesthetics of the products?

    kind regards Thomas Spedding

    @Hope L.

    Question - The new colourscheme looks to recapitulate colours found in bioluminescence. Could future designs look to incorporate actual bioluminescent pigments./dyes in some way?

    So my question(s) to @Hope L.

    What is your inspiration in being able to come up with these weird and wonderful ideas?

    Have you ever come up with an idea and thought this is the one, only to put it down in paper and realise it really wasn't, or vice versa?

    And finally,

    How much of a limiting factor is price when coming up with these designs?

    Looking forward to the AMA!
