    Chris dB, May 19, 2017 :

    2017’s been a little like a hike up a mountain for OnePlus, and this past week we finally caught our first glimpses of the peak. This week, #ShotOnOnePlus photographer Arjun Chhabra took us on a tour through Delhi to remind us that it’s just as much about the journey as it is about the destination. We were also happy to announce a great new partnership, and tapped into the grapevine for some unofficial reporting. This and more, in an all-new weekly update.

    Shooting with DXO
    We’ve always thought of photography as one of the most important aspects of any smartphone. In recent years, we’ve made great strides in lifting our cameras to a new standard. But, sometimes the best way to move forward is by joining forces with a partner who truly knows what they’re doing. French-based DXO has long been known for their keen understanding of photography in all of its shapes and sizes. With their help, we’re confident we can deliver a truly outstanding photography experience with the OnePlus 5.

    Shot on OnePlus spotlight: Arjun Chhabra
    Delhi is a city of many faces, from its vibrant and exciting markets to forgotten alleys and bustling historic sights. Many millions of people call Delhi home, and everyone brings their own energy and their own stories to the city. This makes capturing the heart of Delhi a near impossible venture, but Arjun knows these streets like the back of his hand. We followed this talented photographer around Delhi as he shot some truly wonderful shots of some of the people we encountered on our journey. Join us on our adventure in the video below! Don’t forget to share your most adventurous shots with us by tagging #ShotonOnePlus on Instagram and visiting us at https://onepl.us/i.

    Let’s hang, man

    You might remember playing the odd game of hangman when you were little. We were feeling a little nostalgic recently, and decided to bring back this childhood favorite for another round with the OnePlus community. Next week, on May 26, you’ll be able to join us for a game of Hangman live on Facebook. There’s going to some great free stuff to win, so don’t miss out. The rules are simple, we’ll think of a secret code, and you guys will have to guess it by suggesting different letters. But, there’s a catch! Every time you get a letter wrong, you move one step closer to the scaffold. Mess up one too many times, and you all hang.

    Visit the link to learn more! We hope to see you live, next week.

    Did someone say OnePlus 5?
    We’re keeping quiet on the OnePlus 5, but that doesn’t mean you have to! We can’t wait to tell you more about our upcoming flagship device, but until then we’re dying to hear your thoughts and expectations. The unofficial discussion thread by @DSS18 has definitely turned our heads recently. What are your hopes and dreams for the OnePlus 5? Visit the thread and let us know.

    A Betta Beta
    It’s that time again, Open Beta time. @Adam Krisko has shared the latest open beta for the OnePlus 3 and 3T on the forums earlier this week. A new user feedback app allows us to more easily track and implement your feedback, making it much easier for us to improve the quality of our software. On top of that, the new Open Beta features a ton of fixes and general quality-of-life improvements. To find out what’s new, you’re going to have to check out the thread though.

    That’s all from me for this week, friends! We’ll be back next week with an all new Weekly Update. Enjoy your weekend, and be safe! Don’t do anything we wouldn’t do, which includes settling.

    Thanks for the update. Looking forward to seeing what is up with the 5 in coming days/weeks. My OnePlus One still rockin' and works well running stock Cyanogen.
