    Hi guys,

    Episode 3 is now available on IGTV.

    We spent a lot of time planning, experimenting, and understanding what our users want. Now, the tricky part – time to turn everything we know about what makes a great smartphone great into, well… a smartphone.

    The process wasn’t simple, and it rarely followed a straight path. We had to overcome huge hurdles, there were disagreements, and we even went back to the drawing board a few times. More than we’d care to admit, actually. When creating this new product line, we wanted to be open and honest about the challenges we faced – that’s why we got it all on camera.

    We spent three months coming up with concepts for Nord – figuring out how it would look, what features it would need, and how it would live up to our standards, and those our fans expect from us.

    The next stage is development – where ideas become tangible prototypes that have their every detail scrutinized before we decide on a final design, feature set, and software. We do a lot of weird things to make sure our phones are up to scratch – like sandpapering them, shocking them, dropping them, and even seeing if they hold up against artificial sweat.


    Here's your task for Episode 03:
    1. Spot our product guru from the OnePlus Hyderabad office
    2. Spot a different kind of "pre-order drop"
    If you see the exact moment that is most appropriate to these hints, take a screenshot and share it in the comments below.

    As usual, we will select 3 lucky users who have the right answers and giveaway OnePlus S'well Bottle

    Speaking of pre-orders, we announced pre-orders for India today. Click here to know more.

    Enjoy!

    Cheeky. Moved it to a new one!
    My answers (i'm wrong so... next time it is) :weary::

    Spot our product guru from the OnePlus Hyderabad office
    It's Pete ? (i'm 100% wrong. Go with what the rest are going with. Not even going to edit this one. Wasn't sure who the product guru was... had a google and they mention previously pete being a product guru alongside he's main title. nvm...)

    Spot a different kind of "pre-order drop"

    Awesome!

    somehow this was too tough, @Zach X.
    I thought the product guru was Szymon Kopec, but it's @Manu J.

    the pre-order must be literally a drop or a slam on the the ground straight [e]1f602[/e]

    Pre order : Before ordering.
    Different kind : it's probably not a product.
    Drop : Quite literally drop test... 😉

    Another great video @Zach X. just finished watching it.

    The launch will be amazing I'm sure, well done to all the teams at One Plus who kept going through these strange times.

    I know it's necessary for testing but those drop tests made me so uneasy. I've dropped my 7T 3 times in 2 days and thankfully the carbon fibre case is enough to stop damage.
