    Brace yourselves, winter is coming. Luckily, the first Weekly Update of November is full of the hottest news to keep you warm during even the frostiest of nights. Following a spectacular 150th week, the Weekly Update is keeping the celebration going with some great scoops. What’s more, this week’s all about events and products hitting our forums store right now! So, the time for waiting has ended. Let’s get right to it.

    You know what’s fun? Talking to you guys. That’s certainly how we felt after this week’s Community AMA on the forums. We got all the community managers together for a casual conversation on all topics related to the community, whether it be the forums or offline events. Hopefully, you guys had as much fun as we did. In case you missed the AMA, just visit the thread to find out what happened.

    What’s up, pumpkins? You might remember a contest we set up recently, challenging you to whip up a spooky wallpaper in honor of All Hallows Eve. Dozens of you turned up in your most horrifying get-ups to give the OnePlus 3 some much-needed spookiness. Our reviewers were equal parts joy and fright as they paged through dozens of well-crafted wallpapers. We think the two winners really show the diverse talents of our community and what you guys are capable of. Let’s just say, @Bradon H is not the only one who’ll be rocking these wallpapers for the foreseeable future. Never stop scaring, friends!

    In less scary news, the OnePlus store saw an in-flux of products that had long been out of stock. After much anticipation, the OnePlus Bullets V2 finally landed to soothe your spirits with the music of your choice played to perfection. We know many of you have been anxious to get your hands on our latest earbuds, so we’re excited to announce you’ll finally get your chance. Another fan-favorite that has made its way back to our store is the Dash Car Charger. If you’ve been holding off on that road-trip out of fear of your OnePlus 3 running out of battery at the most inopportune times, or if you’d like to kill two birds with one stone during your commute, this car charger is for you. Check out the Bullets here and visit the Dash Car Charger page here.

    Recently, Stuff.tv asked its readers to name the gadget of 2016. Why did we bring it up? Because, you guys showed their polls what was what and sent the OnePlus 3 into orbit, earning it Stuff’s most precious distinction. We’ve now completed our Stuff.tv hat-trick by winning their gadget of the year not once, not twice, but thrice. Without your help (and your votes) we literally never would have been able to pull this off. So, thank you!

    We also have a some good news for our friends in Finland! We have opened temporary pop-up shops in Kamppi and Iso Omena shopping centers in Helsinki! Stop by to say hi if you’re around! We can't wait to hear what you think of our latest pop-up stores.

    The best squad in the world is also in need of the best gear. With that in mind, we hosted a special 24-hour OnePlus Gear sale of some serious fan-favorites. If you missed out on the sale, don’t worry! All OnePlus Gear products will be available in our store starting November 7. What piece of OnePlus gear are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments.

    Last but not least, OxygenOS saw a sizable update released on the forums in the form of a new open build this week. Have you signed up for the beta program yet? All you need to do to receive the latest open builds is flash the current version onto your OnePlus 3. Find out what’s new in this build in the thread! We can’t wait to hear what you think.

    That’s all for this week, folks! We’ll be back next week with another weekly update. Please leave questions and suggestions in the comments below, and don’t forget to enjoy your weekend!

    Must admit I'm starting to get a little jaded myself about this. Better listen to some soothing music on my +3 with my V2's (without a bag mind at those prices!) :)
