OnePlus Wants You To Help Design Its Next Smartphone


OnePlus wants to know your thoughts on what new features you’d like to see in the OnePlus 7.

The Chinese company has launched a competition for users to pitch software ideas for its upcoming smartphones with the winning entry then being developed by the OnePlus software team, and included in a future update of the Android operating system Oxygen OS.

One of the reasons OnePlus is such a popular smartphone brand is because it’s always taking on feedback from its customers on how to make its phones better. It recently changed its Gaming Mode based on comments on the company’s forum page.

The competition has been dubbed the Product Manager Challenge by the OnePlus team.

You can pitch a dream software feature or tell them about a feature you love from a rival device that can be improved on a OnePlus device.

The post reads:

Every day, we get hundreds of ideas for how to improve our devices. Much of this feedback gets picked up by our bug hunters or through surveys, making OxygenOS truly a software system that we’ve built together as a community,

But put to the test, would your idea survive the logical hoops of implementation? For those of you who’ve seen the show Shark Tank, you know what I’m getting at. If you have a dream feature you’d like to see implemented into OxygenOS, we hereby invite you to take on our Product Manager Challenge

Applicants have until February 22, 2019, to pitch their ideas to the software team. Winners will get given a device to see their ideas brought to life, as well as a VIP trip to a launch of the device.

Pitches will be judged based on the extent it contributes to a burden-less experience, how will different parts of the existing OS interact with this new feature and what the user experience will be like. The winner will be announced in mid-March with the software team working on the design immediately.

Head to the OnePlus form to find out more about the competition and to enter your own submission.
