    weekly update 353.png
    G’Day everyone,

    A warm greeting to all of you guys in this community family! I'm your new community trainee Leo Xie. I just onboarded with the HQ team this week, so this is my very first thread and what I hope to be a great start of my OnePlus community journey. As I’m a total freshman in the office, I will share this week's community team stories from that very same perspective – a freshman's view.

    This week’s office ambient is quite special for everyone. As you already know, Trista is departing to continue her student career, and this week is the time that we officially say goodbye to her in the office. We held a farewell party for @Trista W., and @Amanda W. ordered some pizza. She also shared some white wine from her personal collection with us!
    Thanks to Amanda and Trista, I can enjoy pizza and wine when I just joined the team, yum yum!

    Update of our project progress:
    This week’s schedule is quite full for everyone in the team, as we are busy preparing for some upcoming event. (Secret hint: there will be an exceptional event coming very soon, and some special surprises for our community as well!)


    AMA with Hope Liu - the OnePlus Industrial Design continues hosting this week, we are collecting questions for Hope and he will be answering as many as he can. Please don't hesitate, ask him anything you curious about OnePlus' Industrial Design.

    The Shot On OnePlus September continues, and I have been trying to help @Zach X. to manage this contest for a few days. I have never seen a brand community contest like this, it was so interesting, funny and all of the shutterbugs are enthusiastic about this event. Can someone please let me know how can you guys shot high-quality photographs that look like they were captured by an SLR camera? Anyway, please continue to support SOOP event and make sure to post more interesting photos, I’m enjoying the discussion already, and I will also join the contest soon! I hope you guys won’t laugh at my amateur technique lol. >.<

    IDEAS 2.0 is coming up soon, Zach and the developer team are working on some final details, I have seen some exciting improvement than the last event, I will keep updating the progress for you next week. Can't wait to see your disruptive ideas about the Oxygen OS.

    This week for me is an exciting week, I get to know the OnePlus community and becoming a member like you guys. I have made some new friends in the office, @Amanda W. , @Zach X. , @Crystal Z. and @dsmonteiro are excellent mentors, they are helping me to integrate into the community ASAP.

    That's pretty much for this week's update. This week we say farewell to @Trista W. and wish her have a great new start in her student career. It is a new start for me as well, I'm very honoured to join this big family, OnePlus not only feels like an innovative brand but also a warm workplace that you can relax and do things that you are enthusiastic for. BTW, the wine from Amanda was really nice!

    I will leave a small quiz for you this week, please guess the country I studied at, the winner gets a spoiler for our upcoming event!

    Nice to meet you all, wish you have a great weekend!

    The best things happen unexpectedly, waiting for the surprises!!

    Ideas 1.0 was a total hit, lets see what our community has for Ideas 2.0, all the selected ideas are truly the need for all and quite unique. Seeing OnePlus listening to them was very nice.

    Is it the famous United States??
    Eager to find out in your next post!!
