As we are getting closer to a new OnePlus flagship launch, OnePlus is back with its The Lab program. It is an annual program where the company provides its fans with an opportunity to become one of the early reviewers of its upcoming smartphone. It invites applications from all fans and selects a few ones who are then provided with a unit of the unreleased product.
OnePlus will select 10 users from all the applications for this year's edition. One can submit his/her application by filling out a form and completing a test. Existing OnePlus users will have to share how they will recommend their phone to friends but if you are a non-OnePlus user, you will have to write a review of one of your old phones like you are still using it.
It should be noted that six places out of 10 are reserved for OnePlus forum users. All those accounts that have been created after the announcement of the program will not be considered as forum members for selection. All the entries should be in either English or French language with the submission deadline set for 5 PM HKT, April 1st. All selected winners will be announced on April 2nd which will then receive their units.
These select reviewers will have to write a review on the OnePlus product which will be evaluated by a team. The final winners will get to keep the device and they will also receive a special The Labs edition case. All other reviewers will have to return their unit within one month.
Here is the official flow-chart to explain the whole process:
