    Hello everyone,

    How's everything going this week? BTW, please keep bundled up, don't catch a cold and keep in mind that OnePlus Community is always a fireplace where you can find shelter for the warmth:kissingsmiling:. Ok, let’s cut to the chase and do a quick rundown on what’s been going on this week.

    'Say Hello to 5G'

    The Qualcomm Snapdragon Technology Summit was held this week and OnePlus was the only smartphone company invited to attend and give a speech during Day 2 (855 Day) of the Summit.

    In the speech, @Pete announced that OnePlus’s next flagship will be among the first to come equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and OnePlus will be the first to release a commercial 5G smartphone with carrier network EE in UK in 2019. EE is the UK’s number one mobile network, and was named as the UK’s best network for the 5th year in a row by RootMetrics.

    Here is a video recording of the OnePlus and EE 5G project:

    Thanks for the Weekly update @Trista W. and the tag and most importantly for mentioning Pie status. some people just hate it when it isn't mentioned in the weekly, I don't know why?

    Install H²OS, it's worth it.
    Pie is very smooth with good battery life.

    Thank you Trista for the update ;)
    I'm wondering about the Weekly logo. Is that a new case for the OnePlus 6T that is in there? :D

    Closer... Coming Soon... Patience... I would love to know more about the Google's CTS process. Perhaps a thread about this would answer our questions?
