    Hey fellows,

    It's been quite the busy week here at HQ, filled with all sorts of interesting events. I'm sure you're all thinking about all things OnePlus 8T, but before we get to that I want to share some news from the Community team.

    This week, we welcomed our second intern, @Loren Z. and she will be working with us for the next 3 months, mainly hosting some of your favorite contests and delivering awards. ;)

    It's curious that, precisely when I was teaching our newest members @Leo X. and @Loren Z. to apply for awards, I was greeted with the message below, and they can't help but exclaiming: over 1000 days? wow!

    It might look like a long time, but it pales in comparison to some ouf our community users, that are still hanging around and engaging with everyone else, some of them since 2013. It's very meaningful to have you along the ride, I sincerely hope you take the pride in being an active part of OnePlus Community's growth as much as we do.

    This week, we kickstarted the OnePlus 8T launch teasing by re-introducing our tradition campaign –the Lab, and introducing two of product's exciting new features – 120Hz Fluid Display and Warp Charge 65. I'd like to share some BTS moments. Some of you might know the internal project name of OnePlus 8T is Kebab, so it'll be no surprise if I tell you thatour product department heads were delivering kebab around the office to thank and cheer everyone up.

    I'm a crazy fan of kebab, how about you?:p I've actually been using the OnePlus 8T prototype for one week now, because my OnePlus 8 Pro's screen was cracked by accident :(, I swear I didn't do it on purpose. :D

    We also hosted OnePlus Support online OEF this week. For those who might be interested, check out the recap on what happened and what will happen in the future. Thanks again to all the contributors, we hope you like the result that we worked out together with you.

    And since @Tom B. shared the 2 accessory testers from OnePlus Support OEF in the recap, I suppose everyone else is excited to know the rest of the winners. Congrats to the ones from Accessory Review Challenge:
    @Black Forest Ham @john.awad @Batman360 @kiratplusone @Starcommander @Oreo2201 @IamIRONSman @rishwan.97 @JelleZon @yashwant24

    Their entries are stickied in Accessories forum, and I invite you to take a look when you have the time.

    And also congrats to
    @pprmint. @Pauldyason @J4t1np4r3kh (from Audio & Accessories OEF);
    @Lavin A. @shivam31.ag (from Indian OxygenOS OEF);
    @razzor228 @Vansh99 (from OnePlus Support OEF). These will be joined by the three final winners from the Gaming OEF.

    I'd also like to particularly highlight @Lavin A. @razzor228 and @Vansh99, whose reviews had already assured them a place in the Accessories Testers, but thanks to their valuable contribution in their respective OEFs, they opened up the opportunity for more accessory reviewers to join.

    We'll reach out to these accessory testers after the ones from Gaming OEF are confirmed, and look forward to further communication with you.

    As a sneak peek for what's coming next week:
    Stay tuned and see you next week. ;)

    Can't wait to see what's happening next week! Something creative fills the air...
    I'm currently writing up my thread post on my jacket, as it arrived last Monday. Thanks @Zach X. And @Leo X. for finishing what @Trista W. started !
    Hopefully to get it up later today (this is one you can't get btw).
    Also submitting my Lab entry today... Fingers crossed for everyone!
    And finally, hope everyone has a fab weekend.
