So it would appear that OnePlus were testing a notification internally and that the test was accidentally pushed out to everyone. Maybe it might be a good idea for OnePlus to have some sort of standard text like ‘This is an internal test’ when they are running these test, this would make sure people know whats is going on if this happens again.
