    Two weeks into 2018, and things are already starting to get more exciting over at OnePlus HQ. Not only did we launch an entire new variant of our latest device, we also sold out within hours, and released Android Oreo, and tore it up at CES, and and and… The good news isn’t just that we’re making the most of the early days of 2018, but also that the Weekly Update has got a lot of material to work with. So, let’s get into it.

    That’s a Wrap
    When an early prototype of the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White was passed around the office late last year, there was a palpable sense of excitement in the office. Murmurs of a new true Sandstone device had been making the rounds for a couple of months, never mind the amount of requests we had received from the ever on-point OnePlus Community. It had taken us some time to get our Sandstone material and metal chassis to blend together in a truly beautiful way, but when they did the results had us all floored. So, we introduced it to all of you. If our sales records are to be believed, your response was similar to ours – one of excitement and giddiness. As a result, the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White was officially sold out within 2 hours of its launch. Thank you for helping us rock another incredible product launch!

    It’s coming!
    CES is the place to be for any self-respecting tech brand with something to say. So, a few of OnePlus’ finest suited up and flew to Vegas to bring the Never Settle spirit to one of the world’s largest (If not the largest) tech conventions. A few cocktails, a spectacular party, one blackout, and countless interviews later, we can dub our attendance this year a truly spectacular success. In a spectacular turn, our CEO @Pete confirmed that our next device could be coming out toward the end of the second quarter of this year. Keep your eyes peeled for more info!

    Wallpapers Galore
    Though not all of the submissions we received met the requirements (shame on you for not reading the rules – we know how to use Google Reverse Image search, ya know? ;) ), we still received dozens of high-quality wallpaper submissions for our contest. The winners have since been revealed in the thread, and their spectacular submissions deserve a place on your phone. Go check out the thread now and find yourself a new wallpaper!

    Tried Oreo?
    Oreo’s a flavorful package, but there’s always room to improve. Android Oreo on OxygenOS is now available, in varying forms, on the OnePlus 3, 3T, 5, and 5T. In order to continue to provide meaningful software updates to all of our users, we need your feedback. Check out the thread by @Gary C. , discover some of the best new features, and share your feedback in our survey. We look forward to hearing what you think!

    Questions, Questions, Questions
    A long time ago, @Adam Krisko regularly posted “Questions of the Week” on these forums. Since then, we have moved onto different ways to acquiring your feedback. From asking directly for your thoughts on specific product-related matters in dedicated threads, to sharing surveys in the Weekly Update, we make sure to ask for your feedback early and often. However, it appears the Question of the Week still has a place in the hearts of many users. Imagine our surprise when @luxuskamel brought back the “Question of the Week” in his own way. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on your threads! Check them out here and be sure to share your feedback.

    Feel the Texture
    What is your favorite OnePlus texture? Over the years, we have released various different skins, both through the bodies of our devices as well as our many cases. Which of our textures is your favorite? This question is the reason for @Vito L. ’s latest thread. Be sure to check it out and share your feedback.

    That’s all for this week, friends. Thank you for reading! We’ll be back next with more exciting news, look forward to it!

    You also my friend.
    *Reserved for sandstone red rock* :D

    Did anyone in the office happen to take note that many people would like an option to select from various colors right from the original launch?

    Have a great weekend.;)
