    When I was asked if I wanted to be part of the teasing for the next OnePlus Series, I took a deep breath.
    To be asked by a global company is a great honor. I accepted immediately.
    The reasons are actually quite simple. Since the OnePlus One, I found the idea of the community playing a special role great. When the need arose, I bought the OnePlus 3 (still in use).
    And exactly this reason, that the community has a kind of voice and that it is tried to react to and interact with the community, made me want to participate in this campaign: it is asked whether one wants to be part of the teasing for the next OnePlus Series IN the community . Which company does that already?

    A very great move from OnePlus - honestly!
    I hope that the wishes have now been taken into account a little and that critical voices of the community have been considered for the OnePlus 8 series.
    The OnePlus 8 series could really become some of the most successful OnePlus devices if, for example, wireless charging, IP certification and, on the software side, AOD were implemented. Let's wait and see.
    Maybe the OnePlus OxygenOS Dev Team can manage to distribute at least the security updates on a monthly basis with the given resources that Google already provides with Android. This would calm the community and silence critical voices. And I hope that the ideas collected on the OnePlus idea platform will be implemented so that the weaknesses that still exist will soon be a thing of the past. Maybe the OnePlus 8 series will also be a new start - besides the new VBI. Who knows.
    OnePlus 8 series could be a big deal. And I could buy a device from the series - who knows :) I am curious and looking forward to the new series :)

    I wish OnePlus only the best and much success! Together we will become even stronger and bigger.
    This shows: only together you can make a difference and prove yourself: The community behind you.
    According to the motto: "Lead With Speed" the competition will be outdone. I hope not only with the hardware, but also further on with the software (OxygenOS is the best Android for me!)
    As I said, I hope that it will be possible to distribute security updates monthly. And one thing that hopefully will stop with the OnePlus 8 series: Even though the Indian market is hard and competitive, please: come back to a ROM, an OxygenOS. Same features for all. Because a kind of "preferential treatment" or "concentration" on one market creates frustration in the markets in Europe or America - even here there are customers.

    But first of all: an espresso :)
    cheers :)

    Credits to my wife, she took the photos:) It was a lot of fun :) Thanks again to OnePlus for letting me participate in this campaign :)
    and thanks @dsmonteiro:)

    Hey guys. The time is finally coming. Every year that a new OnePlus device is around the corner, I am so fired up and excited. Can't wait to see and experience the latest OnePlus flagship. Even though we have some leaks out there, I hope there is still more to see from it. But speaking of it, I am really in love with the leaks about the colors. This time it seems that we have two new colours that we had never experienced before and with a completely new taste. But to be honest while the Interstellar Glow and the Glacial Green look so beautiful and different, I am in love with the Onyx Black that reminds me of the legendary OnePlus X design that was one of my favourite ones ever.


    I am also curious about the new VI OnePlus mentioned before and how it will look when used in the new OnePlus 8 series. The OnePlus hoodies were cool and accurate idea to me. Considering the current world situation, it's a nice way to have some fun and at the same time, spreading out the news that many of us were waiting to hear any time soon - The upcoming launch event of the OnePlus 8 Series. So let's be a little more patient and then enjoy the party. I am ready to see what leads the speed this time!


    Bring it on!


    Cheers everyone!

    There's always a great hype surrounding the launch of new phones, and when that hype has hoodies... The hype turns into joy! I can't wait until the 8 is no longer a cloud of leaks and guesses!!

    When the hoodie arrived I started working on ideas about how to use it as profile pic without losing my own personality. Then I remember I had this little pool ball, precisely the number 8. How perfect that is? Bolita means little ball, and I just made it levitate with powerful finger :cool:


    Let's keep feeding the hype with hoodies flood!!

    It is from 16/04/2014, exactly on my birthday, that for me the wait for the presentation of the new Oneplus smartphone is part of the events that I look forward to every year with enthusiasm and trepidation.
    This year too, it is no different, except for the fact that the fateful moment has come a little earlier than we are used to.
    Since the launch of the Oneplus One the thing that fascinates me most is to discover the lines designed for the body of the phone, its look, the colors chosen and above all from this last point I hope there is some nice surprise this year! The specs of the phone are now a guarantee of power and speed, yet I'm sure that this year we will have some nice surprises too!

    Taking part in the tease campaign of the new Oneplus 8 Series was a pleasure and an honor because in a certain way I finally entered this constant that has accompanied me for 6 years!

    "I'm so excited and I just can't hide it." This explains my feelings perfectly well right now. Working with a product like this with a community like you - that is purely amazing!
    I got up this morning looking forward to show off my sweater. But behind this lies so much more - all the preparations, all the hard work is going to pay off when you are finally going to hold the OnePlus 8 Series in your hands and are happy with it.

    I am looking forward to your reviews and all the reactions on Social Media. Let me know what you think about it.

    I'm really proud to be officially part of this launching series, it's a first for me even though it's already been 5 years since I follow OnePlus closely. And now that I even know part of the French and global team, I'm even prouder to join them and become someone teasing this great product too!
    I can't wait to try the new beast and have it in my hands [e]2764[/e]️

    Oh! Almost forgot... My Gosh! Look at this perfect hoodie [e]1f60d[/e] Fits perfectly with my rooftop view ;)

    Finally the word is out. The OnePlus 8 Series coming soon! As some of you might know, I really love to tease around. It's great to have some fun during these times, so I was happy when I got asked to take part in this campaign.

    I'm looking forward to the new features on the 8 Series, although I'm mostly looking forward to the 120Hz and supposedly better display over all. With my everyday job being UI/UX design, it's very important to me to have accurate colors on the screen I test designs on.

    With the new tagline being Lead With Speed, I can only imagine that the software will be more polished. For now though, you have to do with a picture of this fancy hoodie :cool:.

    Hey Guys:

    So here we go....just a few days away to be be part of yet and another amazing launch. So when I was given the opportunity to be part of this, I jumped at the chance (so did the Andster...and don't let that picture in my avatar fool you...there is a bundle of excitement curled up there (and yeah, I just noticed all that Andster hair on the front of my hoodie.....I've given up on that...the Andster wone that battle). I hope to be able to wear it soon ( see below)

    This has been such an amazing journey with OnePlus. I've been here since the OP1 when I scored my first invite from thepanttherlady in June of the that launch. And every year has been yet another amazing adventure. I've truly made such great friends in this community...getting to meet Pete, Carl, Kyle, the hardware and software teams (shout out to Gary and Crayon...), @dsmonteiro (not sure why I like him....possibly the hair style?), all my mod mates throughout the world that I truly call my good friends, my Brand Ambassador buddies in North America and one of my very best of friends (@wissou ) that I never would have met if we weren't both at the first Open Ears in San Francisco (and I never would have gotten that amazing chocolate croissant when he picked me up from the hospital after my surgery), OnePlus truly has been a life changer for me. And I can't forget all my old timer wormie mates (like @zepphead @llldavey @meatandy @theshinybeast @mrbg @yournotmytype @feluda @yeoldegoat @funmunke @ChrisTerp @binky @dreniacdre @SoniaB @superplus @Baymax @pa5t1s )...I truly love you guys. You've been there for all my personal ups and downs, sharing some of my adventures, my Joan Jett concerts and probably too many boxed wine stories....

    So the OP8 launch is more than just another super-cool and exciting phone launch for me...it's a continuing homage the the wonderful friendships I've forged with many folks in the OnePlus community. It's been almost 6 years, and I'm hoping for another amazing 6 (well, I'm hoping for more than that, but I don't want to tempt fate).

    And honestly speaking, this launch is going to be something special. These phones are packed with some really amazing new features, and the colours are out of this world (one might say, interstellar...). I think folks are going to be truly excited....So let's get psyched.

    It's a great honor and a great emotion for me to be part of this incredible teasing campaign! Nobody like OnePlus knows how to involve the community and make people feel part of a great family!

    So, I chose shot with a member of my family, the cat Ciak :D

    I really can't wait the new OnePlus 8, in just two weeks we well discover all the featuers and specs of the new flagship, I'm sure that, as always happens, it will be an extraordinary product, which will be positioned at the top.

    I want to thank everyone who thought of me for this wonderful new experience and thanks also for the hoodie, that will always be a memory! :)

    Tried to pose. Failed harder.

    So, the Hoodie. Sooner or later OnePlus provides all nice lovely things one could ever want. Honestly, thx for everything. The staff, the phones, the community, my mod mates, the photo expert team, all the different David's, the whole photography section, the great social threads, that are a second home for so many. OnePlus - the global friends maker. And in a few days - forever:)

    Hey everybody. The day is soon to come. The OnePlus 8 is on the horizon.
    I'm super excited to be a part of this launching series. Love the hoodie. I wore hoodies all throughout high school, and I haven't had one in such a long time, now I get to floss around with this OnePlus 8 hoodie as a part of this dope movement.

    I'm really into numerology; so, I'm super excited to be a part of the OnePlus 8 launching series. 8 represents infinity, so I feel like we've come full circle, but are also on the horizon to a new revolution. What exactly could we be in for?


    I'm most excited about the best implementation of a 120Hz refresh rate display experience, along with the supposed bigger battery. I use my OnePlus smartphones all day, Tidal, Bluetooth, GPS navigation, video games, so the bigger, the better.

    The launch of the OnePlus 8 Series will be the fourth launch since I started working for OnePlus. Every time it's a very special and exciting time. So many weeks you just wait for the day you finally can reveal the device and see how it's received by the most important people: our community. Already looking forward to this moment. Never Settle.

    With OnePlus 8 Series your old smartphone will feel like a turtle. ;)

    The OnePlus 8 is now just around the corner. When I see how OnePlus has developed over the last few years, I am eager to see how this new banger will turn out ;)
    I'm really curious how they implemented their new VI into this device to round up the whole package.


    After all, the pictures floating around here are really promising! Cool, new and innovative color ways that we have never seen before. This is a bold step, to go in a more funky direction.

    It is now only a little more than two weeks until we can finally see this beauty. And I really can't wait to see this beast in person! #LeadWithSpeed

    Hi peeps,

    As some astute community members may have noticed, my avatar has been swapped with a hoodie pic. Those who know me well will also have noticed the pic on my social media with the simple words ..... Coming Soon ....


    I jumped on the chance when asked to participate in teasing the upcoming OnePlus 8 series, because I'm really excited about the launch of the OnePlus 8 series (and I've never been asked to tease a product before :D). I've really tried to turn a blind eye to leaks and any chatter around the series, but must admit that it is harder to do than to say.

    I have a sweet spot for the Glacial Green colorway and can't wait to see it real life.

    With regards to the pic I wanted something a little edgy, so came up with this. The original idea was for me to stand in different poses and positions around the location and mesh all of me in one pic, but it looked weird. So went with these two. Shout out to my photographer Micas (Some may know him as a OnePlus Mascot) for shooting this on his OnePlus 7 Pro #ShotOnOnePlus.

    I honestly can't wait for the launch of this series, I love the build up, I hate the leaks ruining the fun for me. I have my expecations which some times are exceeded and which sometimes fall short. But I have this feeling that we are in for a treat this time around. Some chatter about a OnePlus X successor?? Might be true, might not.... Love it

    Oh and did I mention I can't wait... SO BRING IT ON

    Hopefully we will still see some special stuff during the launch, something thats not leaked yet.
    Lets see what Lead With Speed is about.

    Teasing with the hoodie is a really cool idea by OnePlus !

    I am not so good in making selfies, but I thought it was fun to make it a double tease by showing a part of our house we got since a month ago.

    Every since @dsmonteiro said that I could be a part of the teasing campaign I was really excited!
    It's a difficult situation out there, it's unfortunate that the conditions are not favourable for the community to get together and celebrate the unveiling of the newest addition to the Never Settle family.
    I always look forward to launch events because it is an opportunity to witness the power, enthusiasm and energy of the community.

    Well, this teasing campaign just proved that the community does not necessarily need to be together to celebrate and have fun. I see people from all over the world donning these amazing hoodies and gearing up for the final reveal and I am more than glad to be a part of this amazing campaign!

    The Indian community members have experienced some setbacks and many of them have not been able to receive the hoodies due to the lockdown. However, I will update my post once I receive it. I'm really excited to see what OnePlus has been working on and I cannot wait to Lead with Speed!

    We will hopefully, get a body inside this hoodies soon, but until then, OnePlus 8 is coming;)


    OnePlus has lived up to its motto and it is teasing the 8 series together with the community!
