    Hello everyone,

    This Trista -- it's nice to see you again. While @Ruby G. @Crystal Z. @David Y. @dsmonteiro are still traveling for our recent launch, I'm here to discuss some uplifting OnePlus news this week.;) This has really been an exciting week! After massive research & preparation work, the OnePlus 6T has finally released this week. I sincerely hope you all enjoy the surprises this launch has brought. A great deal of things have happened within this week, so let’s dig right in!
    • Heads up - Here comes the OnePlus 6T!
    If you aren't up to speed on the OnePlus 6T, be sure to check out Pete's thread for all the details. We are very proud to have incorporated the fastest in-display fingerprint sensor, a huge 3,700 mAh battery, and our largest and most immersive display ever into the OnePlus 6T. We're also exhilarated to announce our partnership with T-mobile [more details here]. As a result of this partnership, we'll be in over 5600 stores all over the US. Here's a highlight of some of our top moments over the week.

    • Last but Not Least
    Some great news: We are starting to push the incremental rollout of OxygenOS 9.0.2 for the OnePlus 6; some of the most exciting features that we introduced on the OnePlus 6T are now available on OnePlus 6, including improved UI, Updated Android security patch to 2018.11 and brand-new camera algorithms.

    OxygenOS has improved with each release. And one amazing thing with Android is its open nature. We have an ongoing tradition since the OnePlus 3, where we release the kernel sources as early as possible after every launch. The kernel sources for the OnePlus 6T can be downloaded right now on our Github page.

    Can you believe that? Our Indian users have bagged a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the Most people unboxing simultaneously, with OnePlus 6T. Read more here. Huge thanks to your enthusiasm and @Joel Jacob for holding such an event!

    Alright, that’s all for this week. Thanks for reading. Enjoy your weekend with the brand-new OnePlus 6T!
