No, Your OnePlus 7 Pro Wasn't Hacked - It Just Looked That Way

No, Your OnePlus 7 Pro Wasn't Hacked - It Just Looked That Way

While OnePlus is focusing on improving the user experience of its latest flagships - the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, it hasn't forgotten about its older flagships. In no short time, the push notifications had started generating mixed reactions with some fans wondering if OnePlus has been hacked.

OnePlus says it has been carrying out an internal test, where a global push notification was accidentally sent out to some OnePlus 7 Pro owners. The company revealed the error on Twitter, apologizing for the inconvenience while adding that they were investigating the issue. It is possible that OnePlus aims to better align the prices of its phones in Canada and the U.S. There is also a chance these price cuts are in celebration of Canada Day on July 1.

OnePlus, which unveiled the OnePlus 7 Pro in May as the priciest handset from the company so far, stated the errant push notifications had been the result of testing for an Android Q update.

Tapping on the notification led to nowhere while users can dismiss the notification.

Officials would not even provide clarity on whether or not Pence was already midair in Air Force Two when he was called to return. The announcement in New Hampshire set off panic at the White House, where Pence was observed entering the West Wing.

OnePlus tweeted an apology Monday morning, followed shortly by a statement.

"The push messages occurred while the OxygenOS team was conducting a software test for the upcoming Android Q system update", a OnePlus representative explained on the company's official forums. According to OnePlus this was done in error as part of an internal test.

About an hour ago, OnePlus 7 Pro users got pinged with two weird notifications on their devices, emanating from OnePlus's own Push service.

As soon as we noticed the mistake, we performed a round of in-depth investigations with the related teams to identify the cause. Additionally, the company is implementing a new process to ensure this can not happen again. Therefore, we want to reassure that this incident does not indicate any risks for your personal data.
