    Wow.. this is what we have been waiting for a look in OnePlus HQ..
    Below are my following questions:

    Question for @Iwen X.
    what’s your role in OnePlus?

    Question for @Well W.
    What are the standards (Not Machine or Automated) you look for when going for testing products? Do you consider Geographical Locations (Like India, US, EU) or its just China’s Location?

    Question for @Cassius N.
    I know you are new here, but I want to know what with what mission you have come to OnePlus Personally as well as Professionally?
    How is the hiring process in OnePlus?

    Question for @Carl or @Pete
    Why there is no support for AR in OnePlus Nord?
    It’s like you created history by launching a Phone in AR in the whole world which is not supporting AR.

    Hi OnePlus team @Pete,

    Ever since OnePlus started I am a big fan of yours, but I was never able to afford a phone of OnePlus. But it all changed last few weeks and now I am using OnePlus Nord. Thank you for a great phone.

    Apart from being a fan I am an engineer (electronics and communication) too. My question is how can I be a part of your engineering team(simply I wanna work for OnePlus)??

    This is also one of my ultimate goal. so please give me some suggestions.

    Hey Fleming, great idea! Something you said really caught my attention so I need to ask, what is the best/your favourite dish available in the canteen/cafeteria?

    I feel like I should ask @Crystal Z. as well. If I remember correctly, she enjoys snacks as much as @Ruby G. did :D

    2. How is the organization structure in the Headquarters. Who leads which team ?
    3. How ofter @Pete & @Carl interacts with staffs ? Staffs doesn't mean Only Heads.
    4. How did you deal with/presently dealing with the Covid situation at HQ. ( What are the new safety norms & how do you implement them); Any interesting DYI invented by any HQ staff and implemented the same ?
    5. What is the procedure of forming a team; when a contest is held in Community, is it random ?
    6. How a new idea from any staff is collected, discussed and implemented in HQ ?
    7. What is the most special day celebrated the biggest in the HQ ( like founders day or any festival) ; I know almost every day is celebrated but I would like to know as a staff of OnePlus what is that day you all are eagerly waiting for. ( Not the day when salary is credited😜)

    Thanks for another AMA, was looking forward to have one for the OS Team, this does satisfy that :)

    My question goes to the OS Team, specifically to @Alec X.
    There are a lot of teasers regarding OOS11. Definitely a step up from just being a "near stock Android experience", giving the software its own taste now. I would assume the feature updates would decrease as it was a huge redesign.

    Are there any plans on improving in terms of providing security patches earlier and/or faster? Like instead of providing a stable update in 2 months which may include some extra features alongside the security patch, give out updates that fix critical bugs and updates the security patch and maybe drop the feature updates to quarterly.

    In past, OnePlus was excellent at delivering security patches (mind you, still bimonthly) early in the month, now we get to see those updates coming with the latest security patch at the end of the month.
