    Hi everyone,

    Another Friday, another weekly update, so, without further ado, it’s time to review this week’s major happenings in the Community.

    A new lesson in the 5G Open Course
    @Dale F. released the second lesson of the 5G Open Course, where you can get to know more about the next generation of mobile connectivity. This one, is all about 5G’s main benefits. If you missed the first lesson, you can still find it here for your chance to get your very own OnePlus 5G Scholar E-Certificate.

    And who knows, maybe this Open Course is all you need to get inspired to enter the 5G Apps of Tomorrow program, where you can compete to be one of the five entries that will win a year’s funding, a OnePlus 5G device, and a trip to OnePlus HQ!

    The #PMChallenge reaches its conclusion
    As the week started, we got to know who stood victorious amongst the almost thousand #PMChallenge contest entries. The attention to detail shown by @Its.Leandroo in his well thought Reworked OxygenOS Experience design ended up making the difference. If you want to know more about the selection process, be sure to read @Gary C.’s announcement post. We’ll be sure to keep you updated, as Léandro’s submission gets implemented into OxygenOS.

    A fresh batch of Open Beta builds
    This week also saw the arrival for the OnePlus 5 and 5T and for the OnePlus 6 and 6T. So, if you like to try new software before official release and want to be part of the beta testing process, be sure not to miss the threads above.

    For those of you with the 3 and 3T, we understand the wait on Pie hasn't been easy. Rest assured that we haven’t forgotten about you and we're doing our best to have some news for you soon.

    Open Ears Forum Season is open
    Since 2017, we’ve been holding Open Ears Forum sessions, where we meet our users face to face to hear what they have to say on a multitude of subjects. Nearly as soon as her airplane landed, @Ruby G. announced a new edition of the forum, to be held in New York, mid-April. So, if you’re living in the US, don’t miss out on this opportunity and check Ruby’s thread on how you can apply.

    Milky Way shows its beauty
    Astrophotography is something that is not new to us. We’ve been seeing beautiful pictures taken by you since the OnePlus One. Still, we’d like to end the week by sharing this amazing shot by @aryeh95 here:

    And that's it for this week. Hope all of you have an amazing weekend!

    Thanks for the update @dsmonteiro after seeing the title itself i thought to write that this update is incomplete without the info of 3/3T then after reading this thing i found that everything is up to the mark once again Thanks for making it complete.

    For those of you with the 3 and 3T, we understand the wait on Pie hasn't been easy. Rest assured that we haven’t forgotten about your and we're doing our best to have some news for you soon.


    Fingers crossed.
