Chris dB, Jun 30, 2017 : For months on end, every member of the OnePlus team dedicated countless hours to the launch of the OnePlus 5. The work was often exhausting, but the pay-off was truly enormous. In this Weekly Update, I wanted to hand the mic to some of the people who ensured we hit a home-run this summer. They’re just a few of the endless number of voices involved in the development of the OnePlus 5.Enjoy a peek behind the curtains of the OnePlus 5’s development. @Carl , Co-founder– The OnePlus 5 was our most difficult launch in terms of workload, and one where I pushed the team the hardest. It’s also our most well planned and systematically executed launch. So many people tuned in to watch our live stream, and so many people came out to our popup events worldwide to support us. Looking at the data, I think only Apple and Samsung launches have this large of a following globally. Customers love the OnePlus 5 and it’s our fastest selling device ever. The team worked really, really hard to pull it all off, and grew a lot during this process. I’m proud of this, and believe that most people agree that the work we put in was worth it. @Emmanuel Peype, Head of Digital Marketing - Launching a new product is always an emotional journey. Our team has been working hard to ensure everything will be on track for the D-day. From reading comments to meeting OnePlus friends and tech enthusiasts at our pop-ups, it’s been awesome to see the reception you guys made to our fifth flagship device. Thank you and I personally hope you’ll enjoy the OnePlus 5, because you guys can’t imagine the amount of hours we put into it. @Zero Li , Project Manager – This was my first time working on a global launch event. Even when the team at HQ was off- duty, I had to be up to support our team in India. When I finally got some time to sleep, our team in Europe was already preparing for another day of work. It is amazing that hundreds of people work together in different continents for one product, the OnePlus 5. PS. Hey, Yuan Lin (Keynote designer)! You are not nice when you don’t let me out of the meeting room for a meal before I finish a content update. @David Y. , Community - All I can say is that last week was totally insane! I was based in OnePlus HQ on the launch day with many other colleagues from different departments. We stayed up all night like we were fully dash-charged to make sure everything working perfectly fine, and we really did it. Kudos to everyone internally and externally, also to all our supporters around the world. I wish I could join one of the pop-up events with all awesome fans next time lol. Now I am more than eager to read those fresh reviews from our community. We would like to thank everyone for giving it their all over these past few months. These are just some of the many stories behind the OnePlus 5. At OnePlus, we have a tendency to only look towards the future and barrel ahead with wild abandon. But, we believe it’s just as important to reflect on recent events and take a minute to smell the roses. OnePlus has grown and changed a lot over the past couple of years. It’s been one hell of a ride, and we couldn’t have pulled it off without you. Now that the OnePlus 5 is finally in your hands, we’re curious to hear what you think of our new device. So, please tell us about your experiences in the comments below. Thanks again for all of your support. See you next week.
