    Hey friends,

    February is coming to the end - have you achieved anything or gotten closer to your goal? Well, I am getting closer to losing weight and getting healthier by exercising at the gym three times a week. It was tiring and difficult in the beginning, but everything will be easier if I persevere. Alright, let’s get to this week’s topics and check out what’s going on this week.

    Forward focus
    Earlier this week, we had our start-of-2019 get-together dinner as well as the 2018 Annual Award Ceremony. We got inspired by all the contributions of the award winners. I loved hearing their stories of persistence and learning about the breakthroughs they made. We've confirmed our direction in 2019 and we will keep moving forward together!

    Say hello to 5G
    Hello 5G, hello world. This is not the first time OnePlus attended MWC, but it's the first time that we're showcasing our first 5G product to the world. For those who will attend this event, do check out the latest product at the OnePlus booth. You might just run into @dsmonteiro, @Carl and @Pete at MWC. If you can't make it, join us in saying hello to 5G. Your well wishes will be displayed onsite at MWC so that people from the globe can read your comments. @dsmonteiro will also report the latest news at MWC from time to time in this live thread, so go and check out what's happening.

    For users in Spain, we're planning a meet-up in Plaza Cataluña, Barcelona on Feb 27 (Wednesday) from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM local time. 100 persons will be accepted, you may go earlier if you want to hear @Carl speaking at the party. Get more details from this thread by @One_Will9 .

    What's more, here's some great news for users in Finland - OnePlus will partner with Elisa to launch 5G devices in Q2. After the partnership with EE in the UK, we're seeking for more opportunities to bring the best technology to the world. Read more about the news HERE.

    Entries have been closed for #PMChallenge, and we've received hundreds of great ideas. We'll work with the product team over the next week to get their final decision. In the meantime, check the entries rolling thread. There are many great reads in there.

    Some more contents worthy of reading:
    • Here's another secret diary from a OnePlus employee from the UK team – @Janko S. . He is a very nice person and his sense of humor makes it a great pleasure to chat with him as well as to read his OnePlus story.
    • @Vito B. has been producing a great Bulletin series in French this year. This time he interviewed our beloved @Gaston NP and introduced some other news. Learn more about it here.
    • @camohan had the fun idea of creating a DOS game based on the OnePlus storyline. I bet you know every detail of our story already. Join the conversation and contribute your ideas.
    That’s all for this week. Hope you enjoyed this week's post. Spring is around the corner, so have fun with your families and friends. Happy Weekend!

    I think it's safe to say it'll be the first time anyone showcases a 5G product at MWC, to be fair.

    1st 5G phone will have early iterations of 5G radios that may not function at all with the trending tech. It doesn't need to be OnePlus's strong selling point. Especially when the whole thing could be useless BS before the model comes to pass.

    What goal??? :p

    I've started doing something from last year... Don't set any goal and if you achieve anything, just say that was one of your goals for that year... :rolleyes:
    So I'm doing great... ;)

    What weight??? o_O

    That doesn't mean that people will stop flooding the forum with their suggestions... :sweatsmile:

    Somehow my city forgot that, it switched from winter to summer... :(

    Happy weekend to you and everyone in this community... :)

    PS : what is going on here??? :confused:
