    Hi friends,

    How are you doing? Zach's back for the weekly update. How time flies! It's been around 7 months since I joined this community. I can still remember how surprised I was when I received tons of warm welcome messages on my first day here. Just want to let you know that, starting from this Friday to Aug 11, I'll leave for Spark Camp, a training program for fresh graduates in OnePlus. This weekend I will go to mysterious island together with over 100 new staff members, hope that we all manage to survive and find our own new beginnings.


    Alright, enough talk about myself. Let's see what happened this week.

    The OnePlus Nord launch event is like nothing we've done so far, and everything is already in place for the AR event on July 21. Many of you have received the AR cardboard already.


    For those of you that weren't able to get your hands on a Nord AR Cardboard, you can always make your own, see this as a fun DIY project. However, we understand not all of you own a device that supports it. That’s why we’ve partnered with a YouTuber you might have heard of – Unbox Therapy – who will be live streaming the entire Nord launch on YouTube, and the OnePlus Nord AR page. Check this page to learn more about how to experience OnePlus Nord & OnePlus Buds on July 21. For those who are interested in the OnePlus Buds, feel free to check this thread by @razzor228.​

    In addition to the first ever AR launch event, we also released a series of Heart & Passion threads, to share the stories behind the scenes and thoughts from the staff's perspectives.
    Shot on OnePlus July is still ongoing, and we have so many awesome photos with impressive colour. @Fleming F. may be a newcomer, but he seems to know you guys well enough. He hosted a new Creative toning challenge to let you show your talents and it's been a hit! Don't miss it if you would like to learn or simply showcase your editing skills and creativity.

    This week we held two online OEF about the topic Digital Self. Stay tuned for the recap from @Crystal Z. next week. Until then, here's a couple of shots from HQ.

    @dsmonteiro teased the OnePlus User Ambassador program last week, and now we are welcoming the very first member, @Cassius N.. Check his first post to learn more about him and don't forget to show the traditional Community hospitality. :) More ambassadors are on the way.

    Hope you enjoy! See you guys next month!

    Also, Zach has joined the community 7 months ago. What's the cube of 7? It's 343! And this is the 343rd update! Co-incidence? I think not.
