Numerous OnePlus 7 Pro owners reported that their devices received two spam notifications consisting of a random series of letters. OnePlus has confirmed that the notifications were the result of an internal test, and that they were sent out to devices globally. It did not confirm how many devices had been affected, but said that it would share more information soon.
Writing on Twitter, OnePlus said that it “would like to apologize for any difficulties” and assured users that its team is investigating the error.
Several OnePlus owners posted screenshots on Twitter showing the same two garbled messages, one consisting of Latin characters, and another with Chinese. Tapping on the messages reportedly caused the phone to attempt to open a browser which then couldn’t be found.
