    The commonality between mobile phone design and graphic design is to convey ideas, feelings, and temperament. Graphic design is very tolerant, as long as we can design it, we can naturally achieve it. Graphic design is easy to convey emotions, and the difficulty of industrial design is more about technical support. The difficulty of mobile phone product design is that mobile phones are developing very rapidly, and their technical reserves are far behind the expectations of users. Despite of 100x investment, it may not be commercialized. Secondly, the space and manufacturing pressure of mobile phone products are huge, and the space of 0.01mm is extremely precious. This requires designers to have more manufacturing experience and a keen sense of design.

    Design strategies, find opportunities and design directions. We can easily do one thing, provided that there is a goal

    *QUESTION* @Hope Liu
    Oneplus always has been giving the best available technologies.

    What are the opportunities of just a mere digital projection in the air rather than a touch screen solid smartphone?

    Is the designing factor of samrtphone in the way of digitalisation?

    The future is a mystery of advances.Hoping Oneplus the first company to accomplish this advancement.

    Information fragmentation is currently a global problem. Although we can learn a lot of information, the information is too trivial. Designers not only need to know the information, but also organize and sort all the information. Find the right logic and business opportunities. I’m not sure if I understand it correctly. My understanding of sustainability is that if I do well, I am still myself. That is others still know who you are after you change clothes.

    The limitation of choice is because the phone is subject to physical requirements such as antennas. We are trying various materials, which need to meet many testing requirements. But over the years, OnePlus has released a lot of materials.

    Of course I am very interested in these new materials. If I see it, I will immediately think about how to use it. If you have resources, feel free to recommend to me.

    Cooperation depends on chance. I cooperated with McLaren because the spirit and philosophy of both sides are the same, and we both maintain an open attitude. If both of us have better technology and direction, we will still discuss cooperation.

    This is our direction and our own requirements. The design concept is that we cannot change with the outside world. We can change the color of our clothes, but we cannot change the principle of being a person.

    I like all the products I design. The core of the things that I like is the process of creating the product and the praise of users. As for what kind of product to design, I don't really care. I believe that I can design any product well, and I need to have this confidence.
