    Hey everyone,

    I have to say – this was an action-packed week, so let’s waste no time and dive right in!

    Two old friends return
    Having started back in 2016, with the OnePlus 3, The Lab is one of our oldest traditions. Many of you reached out, worried that it might not happen with this launch. Fear not, The Lab is here, but, this time, with a twist! We’re opening the doors to The Lab to everyone! If you’re buying a OnePlus 7T, be sure to visit The Lab announcement thread to know how you can enter. Your review may earn you an amazing prize. We can’t wait to read it!

    Speaking of old friends, @Chris dB, Weekly Update’s former Rockstar (and the person I now bother with all my English-related questions) made a comeback to the forums and told us a bit more about Addition, the OnePlus Magazine.

    A new week, a new update
    Even with all this launch event commotion, the OxygenOS team is working hard to provide you fresh updates. This week, OnePlus 6 and 6T started receiving the 9.0.9 and 9.0.17 updates, respectively. If you haven’t already, you should receive it on your device in the upcoming days. @Manu J. also mentioned in the thread that “for further information about Android 10 update for OnePlus 6/6T, please stay tuned for our upcoming global launch event in London”, so don’t forget to tune in on October 10.

    Two new family members
    And now, the pièce de résistance! There is no way around it. OnePlus 7T and OnePlus TV launches stole the spotlight this week. Thousands of Indian users joined us in New Delhi (and millions online) for a memorable launch event. If you haven’t watched it yet, you can check the recap in the video below. Or, if you, like me, were mesmerized by @Tilen P.’s “Top to bottom, front to back” hand movement, you can always rewatch the full keynote here.


    In the US, we had a (Not a keynote) Reveal, followed by a live AMA with Powerbang. There are plenty of fun questions and interesting questions so be sure to check it out:

    • @M1568300509296: If you had to live in the world of the last game you played, what world would it be?
    • @ArieGO: Wait, so what IS your favorite cereal I need to know, it's urgent.
    You can watch the reveal below or, if you prefer, @KeBlam, a US Brand Ambassador, has done the hard lifting already and shared the highlights here.


    And that wraps it up! I hope you have an amazing weekend to recover from all the excitement. As for me, I have a hike planned for a mountain in Shenzhen. Wish me luck!

    The India launch event was awesome. We old friends again met and had a blast.

    As far as products are concerned, the round camera design doesn't look that bad as it appeared in rumours.

    TV is above industry par. The only difference between Non Pro and Pro is the sound bar and the stand. I will wait for some price drop to get the Non Pro.

    Happy weekend everyone.

    Have a great weekend, everyone. :cool:
