A OnePlus spokeswoman confirmed the mistake to Engadget, and said that the person who wrote the slide was not a native English speaker. As a result, our original report was mistaken (we have since updated the story), but the issues here run deep. OnePlus spokespeople confirmed to Engadget that its phone would indeed be the first device with a Snapdragon 855 chipset. ]
"We appreciate the opportunity to clarify that we will be one of the most important ones." any of its employees even noticed the problem.
"We appreciate the opportunity to clarify that we will be one of the first to have access to, and use, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, and apologies for the miscommunication, "a spokesperson said in a statement.
The confusion appears to center around the use of the word" feature "- some inside apparently believed Det var ved at sige at telefonen skulle være den første til funktionen på 855, det var faktisk sagt at selskapet var først til å få tilgang til den chipset fra Qualcomm. Selv om det kan være rigtigt, er det sprog, der anvendes i billedfremvisningen, til et internationalt publikum af journalister, der er tydeligt foreslået. The confusion ran so deep that members of the OnePlus social media team trumpeted the announcement on Twitter, apparently unaware of the miscommunication.
At least Qualcomm does not appear to be concerned about the mistake.

OnePlus's on-stage mistake is one of the Company's more public (and probably most embarrassing) errors, but it's only one of a handful of notable mistakes made in the past two years. As OnePlus's profile continues to rise, we can only hope that it more consistently tries to address issues like these (and others) before they start to seriously impact the company's business.
