    Hey friends,

    As a technology company, we start 2022 by releasing all the specs, camera info, and design of our upcoming new product – the OnePlus 10 Pro. On Tuesday, the phone was officially launched in China, and from the looks of this thread, we guess some of you have watched the launch event, despite the language barrier. The discussion continued in this collaborative Writers' Club thread, is the OnePlus 10 Pro for you?

    If you watched the Chinese launch, did you notice this stunning new version of the Buds Pro? And before you ask me, no, I don't know if they will be available globally. :D

    Also, today was the OnePlus 9RT and Buds Z2 launch in India, Having watched the launch event, I got two key insights − the products' specs, and David M.'s life of crime. I suppose everyone in the community knows who this mysterious villain is, but if you don't check this thread for clues. With David M.'s cover blown, who from the Community do you think should take his place? I suggest @Cheetosdust, @Dunnow, or @B_Wrath. I don't know what, but there's something about them that screams "Lord of the Criminal Underworld".

    A few colleagues from the Shenzhen office got together to watch the OnePlus 9RT launch. I must say I'm a bit jealous!

    That's all about hardware products, but there was also some software news this week:
    • We invited @Gary C. and @ZENG XI to the AMA for OxygenOS 12, don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions about it. The team will start answering your questions from Monday.
    • In December, the OneLab team received 2 awards for the amazing software they built − Clipt and Wellpaper. Kudos to the team, and we hope you can bring more amazing apps/functions in 2022.
    • Software is not just for the phone, but for the earbuds too. We're happy to deliver the dual connection function to the OnePlus Buds Pro. And thanks to @razzor228 for summarizing the using tips.
    • Besides, a new software update for the OnePlus Watch is on the way. Keep your eyes on the watch!
    A Notice about OnePlus 8th Anniversary Gifts
    For those who participated and won awards from the 8th-anniversary games, the prizes are being shipped out gradually, some via vouchers, some will be shipped to you directly from the warehouse or China.
    • OnePlus 9 Vouchers for EU have been delivered, and vouchers for IN are still under application.
    • Vouchers for Buds Pro, Nord 2, Nord 2 PacMan Edition, OnePlus 9 Pro are still under application, and should be sent to you next week if everything goes well.
    • OnePlus Buds Z2, Never Settle Notebook, POC jacket have been shipped out already (some Buds Z2 vouchers are under application)
    • POC water bottle, 3rd/5th Anniversary Gift Boxes will be shipped out by end of January.
    • There are some delays with the 8th Anniversary Boxes. If everything goes well, they should be ready to be shipped at end of Feb or early Mar. Apologize for the delay, and thank you for your understanding.
    A few Content/Contest to highlight
    • In 2022, we've upgraded the award system for SoOP, let's start with Shot on OnePlus - Shadows. A group of expert photographers is sharing tips on how to take better photos with OnePlus phones.
    • After seeing the OnePlus 10 Pro launch, I'm hesitating whether to upgrade as my 9 Pro is working perfectly fast and smooth. Then I read @Starcommander's review of OnePlus 3 after 5 years, hmm... I bet @Pete must regret making high-quality products that can work for such a long time.

    That should wrap up for this week, thanks for reading, and happy weekend!

    Hui, thx for the fine weekly, Crystal.

    One question: there were 20 backpacks, and I was the only winner. When will these be sent? You have my address details. I'm just curious, and I have to make room for 20 backpacks in my storage.

    Happy shadow hunting all, we're still looking for more great pictures.

    Cheers, Script
