    Hey, everyone!

    Happy Friday! To start with, I would like to thank @Gary C. 's team for developing OnePlus Switch, or I would have lost all my data while flashing Android Q this week. The Android Q open beta is not too far away, so make sure to back up your data via OnePlus Switch.

    Okay, that's all for the 'hard sell'. Get back to the highlights of the week.

    Introduce the OnePlus TV name and logo

    @Pete announced the TV a year ago, if you still remember, and we’ve introduced the official name and logo this week. Excited about the upcoming product? Join the discussion and draw out the OnePlus TV that you desire.

    Amazing shots as always

    I’d like to give a big shout out to @script and @cdnfarmer for selecting the ShotonOnePlus entries, otherwise it would be a great challenge for me to lock down 7 users from over 3000 pictures. Seeing all these amazing winning works makes the efforts worthwhile. To make communication with possible winners easier, from August on, we’ll display the possible winning entries in a separate thread whilst waiting for the original pictures from the finalists. Candidates found to have directly participated in fraud or failed to send us original shots within a week would be disqualified. Feel free to report to me and @script on suspected fraud or you doubt that the pics were not shot on OnePlus.

    Submissions for Weekly Mobile Photography Challenge #8: Nature are with high quality. It's also a good topic for the weekend plan, grab your bag, go out for fresh air and share stunning nature shots! Also, this topic reminds me of a song that is in endless loop mode on my Spotify <Natural>

    CUBE Highlights
    • The beer thread from @LightningXIII - Is there anyone who doesn’t love beer? I’m kinda picky about beer cause some taste bitter to me, but Chinese beer are super cool, give it a try when you come.
    New Trophy

    The most exciting news this week would be the EISA award OnePlus received. Learn more about it here.

    That’s all for this week. Enjoy the weekend, everyone!

    Hey @Crystal Z.!:) thanks for the update!
    But more importantly, thanks for reminding me the name of the Chinese beer! :cool:
    Tsingtao can be a little weird beer to drink the first time, but the damn thing grows on you! I ended up having 20 - 25 Tsingtao beer cans during my 1 week stay in China:D

    What? So his diet is basically carrots, cucumbers and the occasional beet? :eek::D

    Pretty sure @camohan is the type of person who also has an opinion about air. "I don't like it, it's too transparent for me. I like to see what I'm breathing, thank you very much." :confused:

    That's great news for @camohan - all this time thinking he was alone because of his personality and, as we learned today, it's just a side effect of his diet. :rolleyes::confused:

    Two notes: if anyone calls him a "toxic member of the community", can that be considered a fact instead of an insult? :p

    And also, now I finally understand what he means when he repeatedly says "I'm taking the pulse of the forums, I'm taking the pulse of members like you". He's just looking for recipes! Here I was, thinking he was analyzing my behavior.:cool:

    @camohan, you know I love you - outside your "no breathing" perimeter, sure - but I love you. :D

    It remains to be seen if 1+ will become a star in the industry.. it depends on the quality of the display and hardware that will be used for the new smart tv.
