    Hello Everyone! This is Hayden and I'm a system engineer for OnePlus AI Research Team. In the program of 8T Concept, I participated in algorithm work related to mmWave radar, and realized the interaction of mmWave radar and ECMF. So I'll do my best to answer your questions about mmWave radar and ECMF!

    Try making a red/gold finish, it would be really cool. Plus a more lightning esc design might be better. The wavy concept while looking very nice is kinda plain looking so unless you're adding something special (like previous mclaren edition phones) you might run into trouble selling it.

    Good luck though and it look beautiful!!!!

    @Boris Yue @HaydenW.
    I am intrigued by the mmWave technology which can register a user’s breathing. Can this also incorporate heart rate variability information to act as a biofeedback device? There are devices on the market for this but would be great to have a high quality biofeedback capability within the OnePlus 8T!

    Are you planning on working with McLaren again for an 8T McLaren addition? I'm loving my 7T Pro McLaren.

    Hello Everyone! I'm Kevin from OnePlus Innovative Industrial Design Studio. In Jan 2020, we launched the Concept One, which used electrochromic glass technology and gave the phone an "invisible camera". This time this technology can be applied to the entire battery cover. Please feel free to share your feedback, ideas or suggestions of this feature!

    @Kevin Tao It seems as though design trends are leaning more towards the natural and biological forms and shapes rather than the polygonal and sharp edges were used to seeing, do you believe this design language will stick around, or will we turn back to sharp angles and aggressive lines we've been using for so long?

    I love my 7t pro mclaren. However it's sucks that there is no AUX port especially when you don't have wireless Charging. I use the Aux adapter to listen to podcasts music and Radio in my Garbage truck because there's no reception on Radio. since I can't Charge my phone while using the Aux Adapter that means I spend part of my Day with out being able to listen to anything but the loud truck please put Aux port back in.

    One thing would benefit for us,. Is when purchasing a new phone and the tempered glass screen protector should be already applied, instead of us doing it. I always ended up getting a second screen protector because I ended up messing up with the application.

    @Hayden W. Why oneplus 8T doesn't have the option auto refresh rate which allow the system to refresh at whatever refresh rate sooth on it? That option allow me to play a lot of good games since not every games require 120 hz refresh rate. That option can be useful same my battery from draining too fast using 120 hz display.

    Do you feel that the idea my be overshadowed by the release of the OnePlus 9? Since almost everyone I know uses a case onto their phone do you feel as if that would take away from the design/necessity of the phone?

    This is really cool, but would it be possible to also make cases with this tech. Most people would want to cover their phones. Making a case or even a wallet case would be very interesting.

    Will this phone or any other bring the pop-up camera back? I have not upgraded from my 7Pro and will not sure to bring visually impaired anything on the screen looks to me like a dirty screen.

    I own a 7 Pro. One of the reasons I own a 7 Pro is because the selfie camera is hidden. This provides me with 2 benefits. 1. I cannot be visually spied on from the front. 2. There's no ugly cutout in my screen. I need only go as far as seeing an ugly cutout for a selfie camera on my screen to deny a device. At the very least, put the camera in the center of the screen so that at least selfies will be centered and not offset. I'm trying my best to be respectful, to hold back my ridicule, it's very sad to see this form factor, OnePlus, you have been assimilated, resistance was futile.

    You need to continue the camera ND filters, but with more functionality!

    Also, I'm not sure if it would be possible, but using the rear glass as a sort of static design of your choosing, like you pick an image and apply it?
