OnePlus 7 Update: Open Beta builds and Closed Beta application details

He also clarified that the Closed Beta Group will comprise of an elite crew of OnePlus community members . You will have to sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) on the selection for the group.

Second, you should be an active member of the OnePlus Community. Thirdly, you should be willing to be in constant communication with the OnePlus team on Slack. It is important that you constantly communicate and provide feedback about the builds to the OnePlus Staff.

You are recommended not to apply for the group if the OnePlus 7 Series smartphone is your only smartphone.
