    Hey friends!

    This is Jade, an intern who joined OnePlus just 2 weeks ago. Some of you might have seen me in Raffles, and I promise I’ll bring you more opportunities to win in the coming weeks. Not to promote me haha, just that OnePlus will prepare more gifts for you. This is my first time writing Weekly Update. Nice to e-meet you all!

    Anniversary of the OnePlus One
    On April 23, 2014, the OnePlus One was launched. See @Pete ’s OnePlus One story and find how the phone grew from a draft to a complete product.

    Today, 7 years later, some users are still using the OnePlus One and some have just said goodbye to their beloved product. Read @nareshs86's story with OnePlus One here and see our users' feelings in @MarcLlopRo's thread.

    Now we have not just the OnePlus 9 Series but also various products from different categories other than smartphones. What do you think will be the next product category for OnePlus in the future? Now, do share your idea with @Cheetosdust.

    Earth Day 2021
    This week we had Earth Day. Have you participated in any climate-related actions? There were some really cool celebrations around the world.

    In celebration of Earth Day @Adam Krisko held Creative Wallpaper Contest and now it is extended to April 30th. You have a chance to win a 9 series phone only with your shots of nature. Don’t miss it!

    Community Craft Day Challenge
    If you love creative work, come on to @Leo X.'s meaningful contest, Community Craft Day Challenge, to remodel and repurpose your unused boxes. We expect your imagination and amazing works!


    About the phone
    For EU users, @Kate A. welcomes you to test our mobile app OnePlus Store. Lots of awards are waiting for you.

    @Hope L. shared design stories for the different CMF (color, material, finish) and how the team brought the design concepts into realization.

    Phase 2 Lab reviews
    Our phase 2 lab reviewers are working on their reviews. In this phase we focus on the Hasselblad camera, so you can find super great photos here. After reading previous reviews, are you excited about the phone?


    This week we have new raffles, Hasselblad postcards, and OnePlus 9 Pro cases!

    A bit of a personal Weekly Update.

    Last Saturday, I finally had a friend couple over (now that I and the missus are immune to COVID-19 and the numbers of cases in Portugal are low enough). Since they rode 155km to visit us, we tried to come up with a fun activity for them to try. Aside from stuffing them with great food, we took them to a cool outside experience – an interaction with Buckfast Bees.

    When you think of Bees and Bee keepers, you probably think of people in weird suits (no pun intended here), but these bees are so friendly, you can literally have dozens of them on your hands. Here are a few pictures:

    The One was such a great phone. Served me well for 3 years. Amazing that now the Mars helicopter uses the same CPU to fly around.

    Thanks for the update!

    Hey @Jade D. welcome to the community. Time does really fly, since it's already 7 years ago the very first OnePlus phone was introduced! I still got my OnePlus One in sandstone black, it's even running a more recent Android version than my OnePlus 6T McLaren edition:cool: Have a great weekend all!

    That's a nice way to treat your guests - putting bees on them 😂

    No one was stung, so it turned out alright. Can't say I wasn't feeling nervous while heading there, though.
