    Hey everyone,

    The OnePlus Concept One traveled around the world and the Community’s response couldn’t have been more positive! Our fans joined the events in droves to try our concept phone by themselves and for a chance to hang out with other fans and staff. For those of you that couldn’t join us, here are some of the highlights and shots captured. And, if you did, be sure to share your own photos and thoughts in the comments below!

    North America
    Seattle was home to the World Tour’s stop in North America. In a day packed with activities, first with the Gaming Forum and then with Seattle Meetup, over 200 fans joined the first of many events where users were able to experience the OnePlus Concept One first-hand.

    • Paris, France
      Concept One landed in France on Feb 5 at Station F. In this tech-leading area where big companies have an office, the scene was perfect for our community to discover this amazing Concept phone.
      After a presentation of the technologies brought by the Concept One, Community members were able to talk with the team and get even more information, while geting their hands on this amazing product.
      We were overwhelmed by the feedback and looking forward to the next Community event here in France. –

    • Cologne, Germany
      In Germany, the OnePlus Concept One Tour stopped in Cologne for an event extraordinaire. The 240 tickets were sold within 3 hours, displaying the thrilling anticipation of our community. After the open forum with our Country Manager Martin Kang about the concept phone and a few drinks and snacks, the two tech-influencers Felix Bahlinger and Julian Völzke took over and engaged the community in a live-podcast. The feedback was overwhelming and we thank everybody who made this event so special. – @Steffi S.

    • Amsterdam, The Netherlands
      On Feb 12, OnePlus Netherlands hosted the Concept One Tour at their brand new office in Amsterdam. 50 community members, who were fast enough to get hold of the tickets (we sold out in 15 min!) were warmly welcomed by the Dutch team, had some drinks and snacks, and offered a short tour around the office before getting to what they came for: the Concept One.
      Our community got intimate sessions with Product Manager Sam Twist, who laid out the story behind the creation of the Concept One, before they finally get to hold the product in their hands. –

    • McLaren HQ, Woking, UK
      As part of our Concept One Tour, in the UK we gave 20 lucky community members the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend the launch of McLaren's new F1 car, the MCL35. They were the first in the world to see the car alongside McLaren's drivers. If that wasn't enough, they had an exclusive Concept One presentation with our friends Super Saf and The Tech Chap, and our very own Kate Parkyn and Product Manager Sam Twist. Truly a day! @Jack P.
    • Helsinki, Finland
      First time ever, we had our community event organized at the Exclusive Service Center in Helsinki, Finland. Together with Sam Twist, Product Design Manager, the OnePlus Finland Team showcased the OnePlus Concept One and had intriguing discussion on technology development with participants. Even though it was a simple gathering, it was the conversations that matter. @CH_Ling

    • Copenhagen, Denmark
      Our objective with the Concept One Tour was to give our fans a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience and let them interact with an extremely exclusive product that they would not normally have access to. To keep it exclusive, we chose a small and intimate setting to host 10 community winners, 9 people from media and 4 influencers, including one streamer, Minnamumi, who did a livestream from the event on twitch. – Marianne W.

    While we experienced the Concept One Tour globally, India had its own mini 3 city tour in Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai. The Concept One product briefing in Bengaluru got over 1700 entries but we could only accommodate 40 this time. Still, we had people coming over from other cities like Silvassa (over 1000km away), Chennai and Calicut for the briefing. Glad to see this kind of a response for OnePlus Concept One.@Joel Jacob

    Thank you for the recap, @dsmonteiro. You did a great job and it's a fantastic way to inform those who couldn't be there.

    The more I think about this, the more I believe OnePlus is playing all the cards right spreading awareness.

    It's a win-win situation. If this tech shows up in an upcoming device, you can circle back to the Concept One as the genesis of it all, rightfully mentioning the community was involved from the get-go.

    And, since it was always branded as a "concept device", nothing is set in stone, so the company has headroom to discard the tech if something goes wrong before a commercial availability.

    I don't know how useful it's going to be, but I do know that from an "identity" point-of-view, it's a genius move.

    The cameras on the iPhone X and the iPhone 11 Pro, for example. Everyone made fun of them and now they're a status symbol. You know a person is using the latest from Apple just looking at the back of the phone. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is experiencing something similar.

    OnePlus can try and pull the same, it is brand awareness, even before having in account what the feature can or can't do.

    Now, more than reading statements from the OnePlus Staff, I would love to read from the members of the community who were there.

    PS: Kudos to the man who took a Pixel device to check the Concept One in Paris. :cool:

    not sure about posting video links here, but being a Vlogger I thought of doing the same on this same topic i.e. Oneplus Concept One India Tour | New Delhi Chapter. And like every other Youtuber out there, I too like to see my channel grow..
