    Happy Friday friends,

    How was your mood this week? Hope yours were as great as ours. Every beautiful Friday deserves a nice update. For this week, let's look at three topics from our community.


    The Red is Out.

    Last week we introduced the OnePlus 6 Red, which features our signature color on our latest hero product, aiming to empower you to be the best you can be. The open sales started this Tuesday. Go and get yours [HERE] if it touches your heart. Congratulations to @Zarin1480 who won in our OnePlus 6 Red giveaway. We could only pick one winner this time, but we wanted to put the spotlight on a few other stories of empowerment that we think you all will love.

    We are lucky enough to have so many heart-touching stories in our community. Check [HERE] to read the winning post plus many other meaningful ones. ( Congrats @LightningXIII for the graduation! )

    OxygenOS Perfection

    To help our new community members unleash the potential of our software, our India teammate @Dibyajyoti Deb shared an OxygenOS tutorial on Reading Mode, Special Access, and Hidden Apps. Check [HERE] to learn more. Alongside the tutorial, a detailed feedback survey [HERE] came out this week. We'd love to hear how you like the new UI in our latest open beta for OnePlus 5/5T - your feedback will be crucial to us for shaping a better OnePlus software. The last Open Beta update for OnePlus 3 and 3T users has been rolled out this week [HERE].

    We'd also love to shed some light following the software update schedule since we noticed some community members asking questions related to the security patch update. If all goes as planned, the next official releases for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 3/3T will be out next week, with the latest July security patch update. The official release for OnePlus 5/5T will be out later this month. Yep, no worries.

    Weekend Fun time

    We prepared one lovely game this week. From our best of the best @Ruby G. to write a community adventure [HERE] together. The setting is our community goes on vacation together for a cruise ( by the way, why am I not in this story Ruby? Did you leave me behind to do all the work? ... wait never mind hey @Pete see I love my job! ). Read what has happened so far and add your own part to the story. It will undoubtedly be fun!


    Alright, that's it. Hope you enjoy the week and enjoy the read. Don’t hesitate to share if there is anything interesting/fun happened to you too.

    Cheeeeeers,

    Great news of the week. I might add some action story lines, maybe with mutant squirrels who hide giant nuts under the boat's bottom.....
