    Last week, @Crystal Z. reached out to me, wishing to have a community exclusive showcase. It's not every day we can share what we do on the ID (Industrial Design) lab and I still remember how exciting it was when I first showed some of the hundreds of un-released CMF prototypes we have stocked in our Lab.

    Now I'm happy to share two of the finishes that we explored for the OnePlus 9 Pro

    These CMF didn't make it into the top ones, but every design is unique and has its own highlights.

    I will gradually share more un-released OnePlus 9 CMF soon.

    Awesome, thank you for sharing these - and I have a feeling that camera bump will look (and feel) even more premium in person. :cool:

    Yes, the final designs are already visible in my thread of meeting the OnePlus 9 Pro Morning Mist.
    The un-released ones are just a reference in regarding of color, material and finish, details are not what they're supposed to be.

    You heard it here first! (Most of you :p )
    The colors are very confusing but they all look nice. So a win for you :D

    I see you're using the morning mist, by any chance is that your favourite of the lot?

    Looks refreshing @Crystal Z. ! Can't wait to taste this Lemonade myself 🍋.

    Google Lens translated the text on the bottle for me: "Fresh vitality lemon juice, we will give it to Ollie together!". I think the translation is a bit off at the last part of the text?!:confused:

    Haha, that's cute. But "Ollie together" is a network buzzword in China. It's too hard to explain, try to feel it :D

    Just get to know the white T-shirt I posted earlier will only be available next month. Do you (the potential winners) prefer to wait or switch to the black one?
