    Hi friends,

    Are newsstands still a thing? We hope so, because we just woke up to a front-page spread in the New York Times!

    Be sure to grab a copy of today's paper. Frame it on the wall, keep it in a dust-proof sleeve, or pedal down your street and let the neighbors know—

    The OnePlus 7 Pro is in the New York Times! Behold, the full-page statement in all its glory.

    Now, if you truly want the latest OnePlus news, why not go directly to the source? Join us in person on May 14 at 11AM EDT, or tune-in to our livestream. We'll be sharing all the details about our next flagship. All the details. All of it.

    And if you're wondering, why is OnePlus in the New York Times? Well, at our recent Open Ears Forum, one of our users expressed his frustrations about how OnePlus is still under the radar in the US, despite having delivered one hit device after another.

    To that, we say: we're on the same page :) and we're not happy about it either. So, we designed a full-page spread in our signature OnePlus colors. The OnePlus 7 Pro itself is conveyed in a clean, spare style. No fluff, no splashy colors, just a better phone.

    And please, if you want all the details, join us in person at our New York launch event. You’ll get to go hands on with the OnePlus 7 Pro, among other sweet perks. See what your tickets are good for here.

    In the meantime, @dsmonteiro started a thread for everyone who's eager to discuss the hardware reveals you've spotted from our wrap. For our community in the US, we have a small giveaway for you! Reply to this thread with a picture of the OnePlus wrap in the New York Times when you spot one in the wild. We’ll gift a Never Settle T-shirt to one of the lucky folks who respond to this thread.

    Update: And the winner is @alteredtech. Thanks for being the first to respond! Please message our community manager, @Ruby G. if you are interested in claiming this prize.

    You didn't "make the new york times" or "appear in the new york times," you bought an ad. So, look, congratulations on having the marketing spend, but that's all it is.

    Simple yet effective.

    Isn't there a version of this ad that also says "No $2000 Price Tag" and "No Random Music"? Maybe it's the other page that's shown on OnePlus Twitter picture.

    The dealbreaker for me is the no wireless charging. I know Warp charging is great but I have wireless charging in car and all around my house.

    yeah, wireless charging, is nice, I personalty don't like it because is daium slow, at-least it used to be on my LG G7, the tech is still only in a few devices and didn't really took of, friends of mine stand behind it one of them has a wireless charging plate on the night stand and it just charges the device overnight, anotherone has a restaurant near his workplace that has wireless integrated in their tables, and since he found out he only eats (and charges) there.... anyway this is not a diss or something, to each, whatever, yes fast charge from OnePlus is the best, I mean I usually just plug when I wake up, while I shower or eat or brush my teeth and in no time, boom! full charge, the only downside is that fast is only enabled with OnePlus official brick and cable (no Samsung, LG or Huawei compatible for fastcharge work..I've tested), you will rarely find one at one of your friend, or pubs, or work, and also I dont see the use of a fragiale glass back plate if there is no wireless charging, glass back is in no way premium, and if it has no function other than beauty ... idk (metal, or ceramic way better), just some thoughts that came to mind...cheers

    Lol it seems to be just a blueprint. I blame engineering school and my poor choice of women for these grey hairs

    I wonder what they mean by "no random music", I prefer my women as my OnePlus devices, fragile and affordable :)
    ps: the grey hair looks good on you,

    you are going to price yourself out of business. I'll switch from OnePlus back to Apple. On Twitter your customer service sucks BTW.
