    Hey friends,

    It’s with good reason they say music can create new friendships and deepen bonds. Studies show listening to music with others can bring about social closeness through the release of feel-good endorphins in the brain.

    The power of music is something we understand as part of our mission to enable people to connect with what really matters – each other. Which is why we’ll be inspiring you ,our Community, to engage with one another through music and an innovative way of using the new OnePlus 7T Pro.

    We’ve designed and built from scratch an extraordinary new instrument called the OnePlus Phone Piano. Using 3D modelling and precision craftsmanship, the piano has been made with 17 individual OnePlus 7T Pro handsets arranged in a line, creating a seamless and smooth keyboard.

    One thing’s for sure, we couldn’t have done this without our flagship’s class-leading 90 Hz Fluid Display technology and powerful performance, making everything run super smoothly.

    This is all about our Community, so we’d love for you to get involved. There will be plenty of ways to take part, including making a song request for those of you who want to dedicate it to a special someone. Make sure you're following us on social and keep an eye out for #OnePlusPiano.

    And don’t forget to come down on the day the OnePlus Phone Piano visits your nearest city. With music brought to life by gifted pianist Karim Kamar, be prepared to be wowed. Plus, don't miss out on a chance to play it for yourself!

    The OnePlus Phone Piano will be visiting the following cities:

    Sunday, November 10 from 12 PM: Riverbank outside Tate Modern, London, United Kingdom
    Tuesday, November 12 from 10 AM: Place Jacques Rueff, Champ de Mars, Paris, France
    Thursday, November 14 from 10 AM: Herrngasse 1, 91541 Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany
    Saturday, November 16 from 12 PM: Helsinki Hall, Central Station, Helsinki, Finland

    See you soon!

    I would love to request "The Weeknd - Can't Feel My Face" and dedicate it to @dsmonteiro

    I hate that song, but...

    "I can't feel my face when I'm with you
    But I love it, but I love it, oh
    I can't feel my face when I'm with you
    But I love it, but I love it, oh"

    :cool::cool::rolleyes:

    This is some crazy stuff!

    I'm just wondering, how difficult it must have been to synchronize the 17 phones to emulate a piano!

    Don't think that hard... I guess, looking at the photo, that each phone has some assigned notes, no need of synchronizing. Tho I might be wrong... But the mechanics of a real piano are way more complex :p

    The last thing I was expecting to receive in my inbox today :)

    Initially, I thought that it was a real piano!

    Not that hard when you have a team of software developers.

    "- Hey boss, should we address these reports?
    - Sure, but first - hear me out - what about we develop a piano?
    - Told you the open bar was a bad idea".
