    OnePlus 7 Series Launch Events on May 14
    On Monday, I started a special Chatbox to draw your attention to what was to come on Tuesday. Smart as you all are, you figured out that there was an announcement on the way. Per your predictions, @Pete announced this exciting affair and invited you to join us for the OnePlus 7 Series Launch. Tickets for Bangalore and London launch have sold out, but you can still grab seats for the New York launch here. Check out more information about the launch in the Megathread.

    Want to know more about our upcoming flagship? Check out what the Verge has to say about the display of OnePlus 7 Pro and feel free to join @Cheetosdust ‘s discussion about the new device. We’ve opened the OnePlus 7 Series subforum so that you can talk about this device with other interested users!

    Community fun never ends
    Continuing with community tradition, we opened the gates for the Lab – OnePlus 7 Pro Edition. Thanks to @Trista W. who put a lot of effort into making this edition of The Lab great. She helped plan the webpage construction to applying, collect user feedback optimize application flow etc. If you would like to be among the first to go hands with our latest flagship, this is a chance that you cannot miss. Show us your ability to be the next lab reviewer!

    The OnePlus 7 Series launch event will be held in 3 cities at the same time, and we’ve prepared several win a trip contests. Deadlines to enter are coming soon, so don't miss the opportunity to be treated like VIPs at launch.
    Farewell to @Dale F.
    Many of you may know @Dale F. from the secret diary series and our 5G open courses. Our dear friend is getting married and starting on a new journey in Beijing. We're grateful for good content he's written on the forums. Even though he’s no longer a staff member, he will still be a part of this community as a loyal OnePlus fan. Dale, we wish you all the best!

    - Oneplus have been best of all sessions till now but there were some cons with oneplus 6t in as flagship grade.
    - Onelpus 6t design was cool and perfect but the durability of body and screen is not so good as it gets scratches while using it for two weeks or three weeks.
    - Oxygen Os makes the phone to premium grade but it becomes to complex. It should be simple and easy.
    - On-screen fingerprint sensor should be made fast as compared to oneplus 6t.
    - Screen tip with animation should also be given to make the user easy to understand the options in the setting.
    - A guide with pictorial representations should be given inside the settings as no one read the guide given inside the phone box.
    - Also, the phone should be launched at a reasonable price.
    - Also, launch an average price phone for lower-middle-class people so that they can use the best phone in android.
    - As India has the market of average price phones with best specifications so try to compete with other phones.

    Bengaluru...!! They are always the hub for music events, especially heavy metal concerts and now this...exclusive launch events. Wow.. Lucky guys.
    Hopefully, OnePlus should consider Mumbai too, as one of the venue for their upcoming launches.
    Congratulations to dave and wishing him all the very best for his future endeavors. Also, to the OnePlus team, all the very best for the most anticipated event in the tech world. I'm sure this flagship (pro) direction the company has taken, will be a successful one..
