Global technology brand OnePlus is celebrating the launch of the OnePlus 10T, its latest flagship smartphone which can be fully charged in as little as 19 minutes thanks to its 150W SUPERVOOC charging, by offering anyone who is experiencing smartphone battery anxiety (or people who are simply having a RUFF-day) the chance to interact with paw-some pooches by launching a puppy-powered, Battery Anxiety Helpline on WhatsApp.
It is no secret that dogs make us happy, and the service comes as new research* from OnePlus revealed that that more than half of people (53%) said that spending time with a dog is a great way to ease anxiety and stress, and 41 percent said a cuddle from their favourite furry friend would make them feel better during a difficult time.
Petting dogs has been proven to increase dopamine, the feel-good hormone, whilst looking at pictures or videos of dogs can make a person feel happy.
So, because OnePlus is known for looking out for its community and doing things a little differently, its WhatsApp service will deliver adorable videos of OnePlus’ very own (battery) pack of dogs – a squad of beautiful baby Labradors called Dobie, Wilbur, Purple and Duck – guaranteed to recharge peoples spirts, whilst they recharge their phone.
Cranking the cuteness levels up to 100, the OnePlus Battery Pack will be on hand to respond to people’s battery anxiety worries and turn their frowns upside down by sending them an adorable, personalised puppy-playtime video.
Tuomas Lampen, European Head of Strategy, OnePlus said:
“Following the launch of the OnePlus 10T – which provides up to a days’ worth of charge in just 10 minutes and a full charge in just 19 minutes – we are thrilled to create a service that not only alleviates symptoms of battery anxiety but also boosts those all-important happy hormones with the help of our puppy-powered WhatsApp helpline.
“At OnePlus, charging innovation has always been at the heart of our product development, to create a fast and smooth user experience to ensure people never settle for less than they deserve when it comes to battery-life.
With the launch of the OnePlus Battery Anxiety Helpline, our goal is to provide some light-hearted emotional support to anyone feeling low or frustrated by their smartphone’s battery-life – at least until they purchase a OnePlus 10T.”
All people have to do to get their fluffy fix is send a message to 07385936686 on 18 August to be on the receiving end of the cuddliest puppy content.
Or, for a more permanent solution to battery anxiety, people can now pre-order the brand new OnePlus 10T, powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 chipset, before it hits the shelves on 25th August.
Those who pre-order 10T before midnight on August 21 can get a set of OnePlus Buds Z2 wireless headphones for just £1, as well as standing a chance to win the phone for free, or win one of a range of accessories. Further, those who trade in their old phone can also get an additional £50 trade in benefit.
